SEA053 Japanther – Instant Money Magic
release date: APR 11 (Vinyl, CD, digital)
distribution: Rough Trade (EU), Plastic Head/Code 7 (UK)
Punk-rock duo Japanther has announced the release of their new album Instant Money Magic out April 11th worldwide via Seayou Records. A fourteen-track collection of songs in the duo’s signature style, the album has just the right ratio of fuzz and feedback to melodic, sing-along choruses. Having collaborated for over a decade and released more than a dozen albums together, members Ian Vanek & Matt Reilly have developed the perfect formula for high-speed, electrically-charged songs that resonate and a live show that’s energetic, unpredictable, and never boring.
Japanther is an art project, established by Matt Reilly and Ian Vanek circa 2001 while attending Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York. They’ve collaborated with a variety of artists including Penny Rimbaud, Dan Graham, Eileen Myles, VEKS, robbinschilds, Dawn Riddle, Claudia Meza, Todd James, Devin Flynn, Ninjasonik, Anita Sparrow and Spankrock. Japanther was featured in the 2006 Whitney Biennial and the 2011 Venice Biennale. Japanther have made a name for themselves in unique performance situations, such as alongside synchronized swimmers, atop the Williamsburg Bridge, as well as with giant puppets, marionettes and shadow puppets, out of the back of a moving truck in SOHO, and shows with giant dinosaurs and BMXers flying off the walls.
