mayflower_jacketMayflower by hideka & The Pristines - out 12th May!!
This album is released by ..:: LCP RECORDS ::.. and is available via digital download on iTunes,Amazon MP3(and other platforms).

*Please note that timing of the release may vary from country to country. Thank you for your understanding.

This heartfelt collaboration took place over the networks, traversing thousands of miles.
It all began with an encounter between British Lo-Fi shoegaze artists, “The Pristines”, and “hideka”, Japan's pioneer shoegazer, following which they began to exchange music files together over the Internet.

Their songs began to take shape in gradual layers: Jon would send noisy sound sources captured on MTRs to hideka, hideka would soak up the British vibe and add her unique lyrics to their jointly-forged melodies. Feeling the British vibe, hideka even found elements of rock awakening deep inside her.

It's hard to pinpoint exactly which genre this new sound belongs to - should it be called shoegaze, Britpop or guitar pop? Either way, it's certain that this catchy, rhythmical chemical reaction is a melting pot of two styles from opposite sides of the ocean.

The long-awaited experimental collaboration is scheduled for global distribution release this May, and is aptly named “Mayflower”.

Female vocalist hideka originally sang and played bass with Loco-Holidays -- a highly influential band signed to legendary label of the 90s Shibuya scene, Confusion (by Pony Canyon). Subsequently performing solo under the name Ruby Ruby Star, she focused not only on song writing, but on applying her diverse talents in playing instruments such as bass, guitar, organ, and synth, and also in programming. hideka has written and performed jingles and background music for J-WAVE, TOKYO FM and other major Japanese broadcasters, while also proactively looking to supply her music overseas.

In hideka's unique "dream pop world", her floating, wafting voice is perfectly married with spacy, oriental atmospheres. Leaving behind the hustle and bustle of the city and returning to her home turf in Yamanashi, she now embarks upon a new solo project to freely deliver that hideka sound to listeners all over the world.

In July 2008, hideka contributed a song to HALF DREAMING: Asian Shoegaze Compilation -- a world-wide release featuring artists from Japan, Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia, Korea, China, and Hong Kong. And we now welcome her to LCP Records for the global release of her much-anticipated new album.
