Goodbye 2016, the year that everyone hated, in which we failed to make a single website post. Let’s try harder in 2017.
ICYMI – we released an album. You can get it here, on digital or a very fetching cassette.
As a tribute to how bad we are at website, our career highlight of getting a mention on Make Believe Melodies was surpassed in March by getting our own post on Make Believe Melodies, and we’re only just posting about it now. This is a really lovely write up of the track we made with Mayumi from Chelsea Terrace (vocals) and Izumi Fontana (artwork) called “Snow Blue”.

For the past few years, I have really loved reading Make Believe Melodies, a blog covering the whole spectrum of Japanese music. I love the mix of interesting underground music and interesting J-Pop that gets covered on this blog (where else do you get Pamyu Pamyu being blogged about alongside lo-fi bedroom producers?), and the passion that the author has for the music he covers. I have found heaps of now-favourites here, and at some point it probably crossed my mind that it would be cool if Super Magic Hats somehow made it on there.
Test press approved! The Kumori EP will be released on cassette and digital on 29.09.2014, via Hush Hush Records. There are two exclusive tracks on cassette only, plus it will look fresh on your shelf/dashboard/wall.
We made a video for More Than Words
