Coming out of an idea hatched during a birthday brunch for Kid Millions (Oneida, Brah Records), the compilation features 19 songs from a group of amazing artists, including but not limited to Akron/Family, Liturgy and Zombi. All the bands generously agreed to donate proceeds from the compilation to two Japanese charities (Ashinaga and JOICFP), picked by Shinji Masuko from DMBQ and Boredoms.

Jag & Brah Release Shinji Masuko LP

Hey there brahs and sahs! Today in conjunction with Jagjaguwar imprint Brah Records, we’re celebrating the release of Shinji Masuko’s Woven Music LP.  Oneida / Brah mastermind Kid Millions wrote the following special message for the occasion:

It is a very special day for all of us at Brah – arguably the most beautiful recording we’ve ever released (excepting the Dirty Faces’ Rocky Bleier) is available today!

Shinji Masuko is the founder of DMBQ and the guitarist and official luthier for the Boredoms. . .transformed some music originally recorded to run underneath sections of the Boredoms’ incredible Boadrum composition into stand alone as a single release. It’s coming out on limited edition vinyl and download. . .

If you wanna check out how heavy these tracks are before you pick up the vinyl check them out on Soundcloud HERE. Read more about Shinji and Woven Music HERE.
