Nakatsuka Takeshi (Qypthone), who this year celebrates 10 years of solo activity, has a new album coming. While several of the songs here have been previously released in demo form for free on the "Takeshi Lab" section of his web site over the past year, all have been re-recorded with a full band in studio, and for many of them the arrangements have also evolved. Featured are guest musicians Matsuoka "matzz" Takahiro (quasimode), Yohei (Jabberloop), Kawai Wakaba (Crazy Ken Band) and more. A cover of Flipper's Guitar hit song "koi to Machinegun" (aka "Young, Alive, in Love" — original on YouTube) is included!
