Experimental, alternative music from Tokyo
Is it ambient, or is it trip hop? Is it chill or tropical house? Is that a touch of funk, rock, jazz, or pop mixed in with the EDM?
Distinctly Odd Records is a label specializing in experimental yet strangely approachable, mostly electronic, music from Japan.
The concept is alternative, genre-spanning music by selected independent singers and musicians in Japan, mostly from the active alternative and underground scene in Tokyo, with lyrics in English or Japanese or both.
From vaguely disconcerting covers of the oldies to meditative songs to tracks that are more sound than music, Distinctly Odd offers you weird, wonderful recordings that are quite different from what you may have experienced. And we mean that in a good way.
