Sourin – Kusaikire / 草いきれ – Audio

Sourin is the ambient-idm project of the Japanese music creator Tomoya Shiono.



Creating music which is of extended duration with many songs running to over eight minutes, the intricate development in the compositions ensures that the tracks are not filled with extraneous concepts, rather bodies of work in which the listener becomes fully absorbed.

The closing track on the recent five track EP Kakyou – 佳境 (available on bandcamp) is the seven minutes and twenty seconds of Kusaikire / 草いきれ, which is also the sprightliest on the release with a drum-kit chasing along the bass-loop and the jazz tinctured keys giving the sense of a journey through space.

It was back in 2015 that 吉田ヨウヘイgroup last featured and whilst there is similarity in sound their music has become even more logarithmic in construct and the listener finds themselves pulling out a slide-rule just to remind themselves they can still remember how to use one whilst calculating the relative distribution of the flute, tenor and alto sax, piano, bass guitar, clarinet, bass clarinet, vocals and drums contained within the album, while always tuned in to the absorbing compositions which draw fractals around the room.

The second track of the dozen tracks on the LP is トーラス.

ar – 吉田ヨウヘイgroup is available on iTunes.*

There’s too much – Cogs – Audio

The Japan based ambient-electronica project There’s too much releases the LP SWM WTH ME on the 23rd.

There's too much - cogs

There’s too much – cogs

From the forthcoming album; Cogs has a demeanour that draws the listener to thoughts of sailing amongst icebergs with the creaking ice towering overhead whilst the various hues of colour are refracted in the sunlight in a song that finds the audience both immersed in the stunning architecture, whilst simultaneously a shiver runs down the spine with the sense of the surrounding menace.
