Studio Mule reinterpret "obscure Japanese gems" on BGM

Reworking classics from Yellow Magic Orchestra, Mariah and Yukihiro Takahashi protecting Burt Bacharach.

The newly fashioned Studio Mule band will launch their debut album, BGM, this May.

Initially began as a sub-label of Japanese imprint Mule Musiq, the Studio Mule label head Toshiya Kawasaki has put collectively a “group of shifting members” for his or her debut album, which is made up of “reworked, obscure Japanese gems”.

Included on the album are reworks of Yellow Magic Orchestra’s ‘Ballet’, Mariah’s ‘Shinzo No Tobira’, and a canopy of Burt Bacharach’s ‘The April Fools’ by Yukihiro Takahashi.

BGM arrives on May three. Check out the quilt artwork and tracklist under.
