Thanks to Zac Bentz, our resident Japanese music genius, I discovered Polysics a few years back, and I've been hooked ever since. If you don't dance your ass off after watching the video for "How Are You?", well ... it's probably best for you to stop reading this post now, in that case.
The Polysics will release a new album on March 9th called "Oh No! It's Heavy Polysick!!!" The current cover features the Polysics and all their staff in identical outfits, wearing the trademark glasses they are known for.
