Happiness Records, the label of Nakatsuka Takeshi (Qypthone), will release a second compilation of its "LOHAStyle" series that began this year. I'm especially eyeing this one for the solo track by eli (girl it's U, ex-Love Tambourines).
For those not in the know, LOHAS (short for "Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability") is the magic keyword in Japan right now, and it finds its place just about anywhere.
There will be a release party on 9/9 limited to 50 people, details at Happiness Records.
