Japanese Wallpaper starts record label, Neat Lawn, and announces first artist Stay At Home Son

As our editor said, “It wasn’t enough for Jap Wall to just be super-talented so he started his own label.”

New Zealand is always the butt of every Australian joke, revolving around being, ‘a sheepshagger,’ but they have a habit of punching above their weight with their recent referendum debating at one point whether to have a Kiwi shooting lasers out of its eyes, a cracker Rugby Union team and being one of the most beautiful places in the world. So it’s not really surprising the music coming out is also excellent. Case being Stay At Home Son’s debut song Bluffs And Blocks from his upcoming EP Stay At Home Son out via Japanese Wallpaper’s own label Neat Lawn.

Bluffs And Blocks channels Courtney Barnett through his to-the-point lyricism in which he tries to take apart the walls he put up in his life. Indeed, it has a really tender beauty to it, you can’t help but feel for Stay At Home Son as he struggles to do what he wants to do. A feeling many of us can emphasize with and is treated exceptionally well in Bluffs And Blocks with the keening guitars and introspective chorus. Bluffs And Blocks is a song most artists would struggle to write but Stay At Home Son has done this with his first song.
