“My Vinyl Treasures” record posts are a result of one of my ongoing covid-19 self-quarantine projects, cataloguing many records of various genres I have acquired through the years. It should go without saying, that whatever I post here, I like and you should check it out.
This 2014 release of “Attention Please” by Boris, a Tokyo-based band, is infused with large swathes of metal, experimental and goth tendencies. Boris has had a lengthy and prolific career whose music has been described simultaneously as experimental, doom, noise, ambient, metal, dream pop, shoegaze and more. If you really care you can listen to each particular LP (but there’s a lot of them!) to decide how YOU want to categorize them. I think you will find they can check all of those boxes at different points in their career.
They are all amazing musicians but for me, Wata, the petite lead guitarist/vocalist is hella sexy and powerful playing at full volume through her wall of Orange amps. She’s on the cover of this release but her live performance fashion is much more rocker style.
I have been lucky to see Boris perform live at the Glass House in Pomona, The Echoplex in Echo Park and The Regent in dtla. If you ever get an opportunity to see them perform live, you better leave a ticket at the box office for me or else!
