Yasuaki Shimizu
Kakashi

Another welcome reissue of Yasuaki Shimizu’s work, hot off the heels of his Music for Commercials on Crammed Discs. With fewer commission-related restrictions, his work here is more elaborate and immersed in playful fusion - if you didn’t know that he was on that Mariah album Utakata No Hibi (reissued to great acclaim in 2015) before, it’ll be obvious now. The ultra-crunchy bass and elegant sax are especially noteworthy here. And what a lovely cat!

Yasuaki Shimizu
Music For Commercials

From 1987, Yasuaki Shimizu's Music For Commercials is still a very popular title in the 'Made to Measure' series. Composer-saxophonist Shimizu -- known for his soundtrack work and collaborations with Ryuichi Sakamoto, Van Dyke Parks, Bjork etc -- made an unusual album of short bits for Japanese TV ads (Seiko, Sharp, Honda). 23 tracks, each around 2 minutes long. Sounds are collaged, machines whirr. Artists such as OPN are well into it. CD / remastered vinyl with colour inner sleeve and free download. On Crammed Discs.
