Comprising new music releases, live events and DJ parties, Call And Response Records is a Tokyo-based label specialising in postpunk, new wave and indie music from the Japanese underground music scene.


The label started in 2005 and has released a number of albums and EPs, compilation albums and smaller DIY projects. We organise the regular Call And Response Indie Disco and annual Koenji Pop Festival events in and around the Tokyo suburb of Koenji, as well as various other events both in Tokyo and around Japan.


Call And Response is also associated with the Japanese music blog Clear And Refreshing, which features reviews and articles on a broader range of Japanese pop, indie and underground music. You can also keep up with Call And Response on Facebook and Twitter.
