Beijing based Nasty Wizard Recordings are over enthusiastically high fiving themselves in celebration of their latest release, featuring Beijing’s psych-punk-garage duo Luvplastik and Seoul’s DIY wunder pop crusaders Nice Legs.
Taking two of the most exciting new bands rocking the capitals of China and South Korea and putting them on the same tape is an act of dark wizardry at it’s best and that’s exactly what the Nasty Wizard has done.
On the one hand we have rock revival, psych punk two piece Luvplastik who have been tearing Beijing a new one over the past year. On the other we have the irresistible Nice Legs, who’ve entranced Seoul with their ability to melt hearts with sickly sweet vocal melodies and at the same time get bodies writhing in Energizer- bunny-powered-by-uranium energy.
Two examples of lo-fi wizardry from East Asia, thrown onto magnetic tape reels and polycarobinate disks, packaged with a double sided zine with interviews with the bands, and a mini zine from each band which when you put together you get a super slick designs by Beijing based artist Anya Chalina.
