okamotonoriaki
Happy Ending

Third solo album from okamotonoriaki, a Tokyo musician and artist who produces electronic pop that foregrounds fiddly little textures as much as it does big melodies. Guests that helped bring his vision to light on Happy Ending include guitarist ...view item »

Marihiko Hara & Polar M
Dance

A second album of smooth collaboration from the duo of Marahiko Hara and Polar M. Guitar and keys move softly around each other in a sort of jazz-lounge-folktronica hybrid. The title Dance refers to the artists’ notion that every part of life can be a dance, and also reflects their recent collabor...view item »

Park Avenue Music
For Your Home Or Office

Oh this is nice, wondrously sparkling electronica just like your Mum used to make (Mum geddit?). It’s full of soft-as-lace Rhodes piano-like trills with skittery micro-beats and dog friendly high pitched female vocals that recall the Mum lad...view item »

Marihiko Hara & Polar M
Beyond

Ever wonder what a collaboration between Harold Budd and Mark Knopfler would sound like? Just listen to the opening track of this magical new album by Marihiko Hara & Polar M and hear a pretty good approximation, smooth gliding guitar ar...view item »

Hior Chronik
Unspoken Words

Hior Chronik? I'm not sure if that is this guy's actual name, some kind of a pseudonym, a band/project name? Most mysterious. Either way I can tell you what he sounds like. It's minimal, crackly, warm modern composition that falls between ambient and neoclassical territory. It's desperate...view item »

Flica
Weekendary

Flica is known to his close friends and family as Euseng Seto and he's made this lovely album on the Mu-Nest label. Inspired and influenced by Japanese instrumental hip-hop but with a more cinematic approach to music, Seto has made something in the realms of easy listening. Now, I know a ...view item »

okamotonoriaki
A Little Planet

I missed the boat on Okamotonoriaki’s debut ‘Telescope’ a couple of years ago, although I hear it was good, but now I get to review his new one ‘A Little Planet’ and try to get my head around this Japanese audio-visual ...view item »

Various (Aspidistrafly, Aus, Dom Mino etc.)
In This Nest, We Found Our Winged Tales

First up we've 'In this nest we found our winged tales' a modestly sublime remix project presented by Mu-nest, a Malaysian label fascinated with all things electro-acoustic. Paired into groups of five, Mu-nest artists and collaborators have been set the task of remixing each others work. The artists share a lot in common and seem very comfortable w...view item »

Rist
Weekend

FOLKTRONICA. A term that strikes a soggy, depressing fear into the hearts of anyone with an ounce of life left in their their body. A melding of genres that always turns out so dull, so worthy, so downright fucking un-punk that Coldplay probably listen to it on their gold plated, diamond-encrusted NASA iPods while they're power walking down a never...view item »

okamotonoriaki
Telescope

This is the debut release from this Tokyo audio-visual artist. There is some really lovely warm imaginative electronica on here, colourful and bursting with emotional depth. This is electronic music of the super twinkly sparkly pretty variety that other Japanese labels such as Flau are renowned for. There is piano, some of the artists own vocals...view item »

[Post-Foetus]
The Fabric

I've just ripped open a copy of a CD by [Post-Foetus]. It's called 'The Fabric' and contains some really emotive, chilled electronica, kaleidoscopic glitch pop & occasional neo-classical stirrings. A chap called Will Wiesenfeld is responsible, a young prodigy indeed. Blurred, yearning vocals weave themselves around the twinkles & pulses, wa...view item »

Starke
A Letter From Yesterday

The first thing in me pile this week is a CD by Starke on Malaysia's own Mu Nest label. The opener of 'A Letter From Yesterday' is an upbeat number not a million miles away from Lemon Jelly... ie it's all spritely and happy sounding. It's kind of misleading though as the rest of the album straddles that neo classical, new age electronica, electro a...view item »

Flica
Windvane &; Window

Haven't reviewed anything from over in Malaysia before I don't think. 'Windvane & Window' is a lush CD of twinkly, hazy, sun & paradise electronica by Flica who is most definitely schooled in the Post Arovane 'Tides' college of thought. The beats sound like Fizzarum at one point but the overall sheen couldn't be less Icy Russian if it tried...view item »
