* Japanese Text Translated *

The new Popeye is here, from Japan, for you, just because. How to enjoy the special feature "Records and Watches."

"You might think that the latest issue of POPEYE released in May is another retro-oriented feature, but of course that's not all. It's a book that doesn't matter. Please see how to enjoy this special feature on this special feature introduction page.

Illustrated by American illustrator Jordan Awan.

He was once an art director for "THE NEWYORK TIMES" and "THE NEWYORKER", and this is his first work with POPEYE. Come to think of it, the thing that records and watches have in common is that they both have needles that go round and round.

It's not a way of choosing "that music genre" or "that musician", it's not like "the texture of the sound you hear on a record, or the act of dropping a needle is retro", but you can record more intuitively and freely. to enjoy.

Explore the creative director's collection of POPEYE Web. The perspective of "education", the artwork of the packaging and accessories, the frog's croaking, etc. I've never seen it before, and I'm just wondering, "What kind of sound is in it?"

In this interview, 9 groups of record lovers first set a theme and talk about their personal belongings, which they chose from their own collection of 3 to 5 records according to that theme.

"Jazz and Street", "Gold Disc", "Rare Stuff", "Live Album", "Meditation", "Encounter with Treasure", "Hardcore", "Literature", "Psychedelic".

From the standard records to the hard-to-find records, 32 carefully selected records out of nearly 150,000 in total. Check out the jackets and talks that make you want to listen to it.
