FLASHLIGHTS: Shadows and Lights: LP

Secret Mission continues delivering fantastic vinyl releases of the best in Japanese punk. This already-classic 2016 album was remastered for vinyl for the first time in 2019 by Jeff Burke of Marked Men/Radioactivity. Light, dreamy vocals are backed with hooky melodic instrumentals. Only five hundred copies were pressed, with less than half going to the States. Make sure not to miss it! –Art Ettinger (Secret Mission, secretmissionrecords.com)
