"Hunting Pigeons"

Often served up with a touch of groove Hunting Pigeons‘ is a straightforward indie rock four-piece from Kobe, Japan. Along with bass player and former bandmate Kuniaki Kakusei (25m Floater), guitarist Noriaki Takagi, and drummer Kozo Nakamura (X-Discos, Overcoats) — Hunting Pigeons is the latest offering from former 25m Floater frontman Isseki Shirai. - ANUSAYA passionate about music!


"Album descripton"

Honeycomb Jukebox is the debut album from indie/alternative group Hunting Pigeons. This entirely self-produced and self-financed 12-track album feels like a time capsule from the 90s, back when "college rock" bands like Dinosaur Jr. and Pavement roamed the earth. This is definitely worth a listen if you miss alternative radio.

"Hey Guys Remember The 90s?: Hunting Pigeons"

The likes of “Decade In Crusade” and the easy-going “Box Full Of Vinyls” bring to mind the sort of catchy fare that dominated my Dad’s radio back in the day, the latter reminding me of Pavement but not because of wacky lyrics but because of a slacker energy radiating out of it. Good stuff, but towering above everything else Hunting Pigeons has released is “Like A Eunuch.” Whereas some of their songs come off like a tween who just saw Pulp Fiction for the first time in 2011, “Eunuch” could be a lost relic of those alt-radio days, anchored by a chorus both catchy and just waiting to be dissected by bong-side philosophers. - Make Believe Melodies The Latest On Music From Every Corner Of Japan

Bio

Kobe's own indie maestro re-surging!
after 10 years of rocking out in Japan (plus 1 NYC show) the Kobe based indie popper 25m. Floater with 3 critically acclaimed albums and a couple of EPs disbanded in 2005. the front man Isseki spent most of the next year writing, working on his home studio and playing with various musicians before forming Hunting Pigeons in early 2007. Isseki hasn't ceased his pursuit of the perfect pop/rock song with his new band mates Hei & Shin and recently added lead guitarist Nori! they claimed themselves as the DIY fundamentalists, never to drain their hard-earned yens to big budget studio sessions in vain to spoil their passion to create music on their own. in 2009 they released their first 2 EPs on band's own label "Home Recording is Killing Music" After Isseki's spending all spare time he has during summer and early fall 2010 at his bedroom studio, the band's finishing their 1st album "Honeycomb Jukebox"

Musically, Isseki’s songs have always been as catchy as once Norman Blake from Teenage Fanclub gave a thumbs up. Now with this new band, they are armed with better musicianship and maturity, varied musical influences and extra bags around the waists, to complete their ambition to make a perfect pop song. One thing always remains is the song.
