Japanese female group-sounds retro psychedelic-rock four piece Kinoco Hotel play two nights at Osaka’s Shangri-La. The energetic band played their first live show in Tokyo in 2007. Led by vocalist Marianne Shinonome alongside guitarist Isabelle Kamogawa, drummer Fabienne Inawashiro, and bassist Julietta Kirishima, they released their major debut album in 2010 titled Marianne No Yuutsu (Marianne’s Melancholy). Actively touring and playing at festivals all over Japan since then, the band uses 60’s-sounding fuzz guitar for what they call a “biting punk sound and addictive beat.”
At the beginning of this year, the band put out a special live 2 CD and DVD set celebrating their 10-year anniversary. As part of the celebrations, they last year released an album of early songs re-recorded (plus one new song). The album is called Play Girl Dai Makyo.
