While browsing the Free Music Archive, I recently noticed a selection of the vast free catalog of the Osaka-based label Element Perspective. The "sound and design" label has been around since 2010, and works to expand the boundaries of the listening experience by publishing the most Avant-garde sounds.
One place to start exploring their work is with their Hope 2.0 compilation, conceived as a tribute to the victims of the 2011 Tsunami in Japan and the long term consequences of living in a radioactive environment.
It's exciting to see Japanese netlabels that deliver music for free undergoing an exciting moment of health and expansion, including Bunkai-Kei Records, ALTEMA Records, Shakuya Records, Mizukage Records, Hz-records, and totokoko label.

via WFMU's Blog, March 8th 2011 -- Satanicpornocultshop are a band from Osaka, Japan who specialize in creating music that blends hip-hop, glitchy noise, traditional folk music, pop standards, and much more into a sound that is both frantic and reassuring, comforting and hysterical. In 2007, the group appeared on Cyclic Bits: The Raymond Scott Variations, the special created for Ergo Phizmiz's Phuj Phactory on WFMU, which is now available for download via the Free Music Archive. Since then, the group has released a few stellar records, including the impossibily-long titled yet brilliant Arkhaiomelisidonophunikheratos, the super funky Catholic Sunspot Apron, and the Kesalan Patharan e.p. available here on the FMA courtesy of UpitUp Records.
I was delighted to e-mail core Satanicpornocultshop member Ugh via e-mail:
On Catholic Sunspot Apron, the band covers the M.A.S.H. theme song several times. Why did you decide to play this song with the group? What does the song mean to Satanicpornocultshop?
Ψ(Θ)_(Θ)Ψ This song on this album [Catholic Sunspot Apron] is very important. I have covered this song under three different situations - "Logic," "Expression," and "Destruction." To transform an original song’s outlook by a cover song, this is an important theme of Satanicpornocultshop. An original song’s outlook is transformed by combining layers of sampling, the language, and the arrangement. Especially, "Suicide Is
Painless," which is a wonderful song that can be interpreted. I wanted to present the variation of "Selection of Recognition" on this album by same song.
Anyway, now I fight to complex the work for release Catholic Sunspot Apron on Some Bizzare, UK. It’s UK edition with a different mix, the different order. I will try to one more remix version of "Suicide Is Painless" on this forthcoming edition, to be released this year.
