Haruomi Hosono
Cochin Moon

Cochin Moon is Haruomi Hosono’s 5th solo album, inspired by a trip to India and set as the soundtrack to a non-existent Bollywood film. The record was originally released in 1978 and as such was massively ahead of its time with its manic electronic instrumentation. FFO Cluster, Aphex Twin. Artwork was provided by Tadanori Yokoo.

Mac DeMarco / Haruomi Hosono
Honey Moon

Turns out that Mac DeMarco is a huge fan of Japanese legend Haruomi Hosono and as part of this ongoing series from Lights in the Attic has chosen to cover 'Honey Moon' in his inimitable style whilst also singing in Japanese. You'll remember this series from the time Ariel Pink covered Donnie & Joe Emerson's 'Baby' and the format remains the same here  - you get the cover on the A side and the original on the flip.  

Haruomi Hosono
Hosono House

The Haruomi Hosono reissue train rolls on with a new pressing of his 1973 debut solo LP courtesy of Light In The Attic. For Hosono House the Yellow Magic Orchestra architect claims to have been going for a Music From Big Pink kind of thing, and the plethora of steady rockin’ grooves testify to that. However, this being HH, there is an element of cerebral surreality that lends the record an odd charm.

Haruomi Hosono

Haruomi Hosono, founder of the legendary Yellow Magic Orchestra gets his abstract juices flowing with this exciting avant-garde reissue. Originally released in 1982, Philharmony is a jaunty journey through pop, synth workouts and blissful experimental wonder. Reissued in fine style by Light In The Attic.

Haruomi Hosono, Shigeru Suzuki & Tatsuro Yamashita

Here’s a rare record of Japanese exotica from 1978, recorded by a crack team of session musicians: Shigeru Suzuki, Haruomi Hosono and Tatsuro Yamashita. Pacific aims to conjure up the lush sunny Pacific island experience with smooth jazz and funk, and the atmospheric results end up being pretty damn captivating. Reissued by Victory.
