A collaborative album (available on bandcamp) with each of the tracks featuring one of the Japanese vocalists まりか (Marika),  ケイコ ヨシムラ (Keiko Yoshimura) or the US singer Ami, barring the sixth and penultimate tracks.

The immersive, approximately forty two minutes, ten songs on the LP finds the mind completely absorbed in the downtempo ambient warmth of the intangible beauty of the combinations of molten electronica, strings, keys and haunting voices – with time passing unnoticed.

My selection from the album being the fourth – R.P.G. which features ケイコ ヨシムラ.

A selection of three live recorded videos surfaced in the past week, each of slightly different air and all measured by the emotional vocal.

From the selection, my pick of the set and the one I would like to feature to introduce a musician I look forward to hearing much more from – Adrift – is played on the shortest fretboard.
