The Cure and The Editors on new The Japanese Popstars album

February 10, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized 

The Japanese Popstars have assembled quite a strong line-up for their new album. The album includes guest performances by Robert Smith (The Cure), Tom Smith (The Editors), Morgan Kibby (M83) and James Vincent McMorrow next to Lisa Hannigan, Chicago house legend Green Velvet and Jon Spencer. Honestly we wonder a bit why this act has deserved this because their material so far could not impress us at all.

The Japanese Popstars are an electronic act from Derry, Northern Ireland, consisting of Declan McLaughlin aka Decky Hedrock, Gary Curran, and Gareth Donoghue. They are signed to indie label, Gung-Ho Recordings (Gus Gus, Zoo Brazil) in the UK, and Beatink in Japan (home of Underworld, Aphex Twin, and Cinematic Orchestra).

The band will release their new single “Song For Lisa” on Positiva/Virgin on 4 April 2011. The release features Mercury Prize-nominated Irish singer-songwriter Lisa Hannigan.
