Minimal Wave Records and Bitter Lake Recordings present their first collaborative release, a double LP by mythical Japanese underground electronic trio Portray Heads.

Their self-titled double LP spans all their recordings to date including the songs from their rare Elaborate Dummy flexi (1985), follow-up Oratorio (1986) and several incredible newly discovered demos. Influenced by early 1980s European New Wave and Japanese synthpop, their songs range from circular poppy synth gems to moody dark new wave anthems – all led by strong female vocals. It’s an absolute honor for us to release this long lost Japanese minimal synth classic.

The release is limited to 999 copies pressed on 160 gram black double vinyl, presented in a high quality matte gatefold jacket featuring a rare photograph and the story behind the band.
