Half Japanese - Hear The Lions Roar LP
‰ÛÏThey set a blueprint for subsequent indie rock, the kind that valued DIY yet didn‰۪t shy away from melody, and addressed matters of the heart with arch distance.‰ Pitchfork
‰ÛÏHalf Japanese are no dictatorship ‰ÛÒ more an underground political movement, united in their love for Jad Fair‰۪s weird dismantling vision‰ The Wire
Wildly eccentric and humorous, the energetic ‰Û÷Hear The Lions Roar‰۪ is an art rock record where Jad‰۪s expertly thrown out lyrics remain optimistic and fresh alongside a fierce and compelling rhythm section. Featuring a cohort of past musicians from the 90‰۪s, their dexterous instrumentation brings further depth to Jad‰۪s songs.
