Konata Kanata

Hontatedori is comprised of Tokyo-based musical trio Taku Unami, Moé Kamura and Tetuzi Akiyama. Although certainly recognised as individual performers of some stature, ‘Konata Kanata’ is nevertheless their sophomore album following 2013's self-titled debut LP. The record generously gives us more of Kamura's endearingly fragile voice, planted between the twin crystalline sound-worlds of Unami and Akiyama's explorative guitars. Around the edges of the tapestry you might discover a fringe thread of subtle funk, chilled psychedelia or refracted film score. LP only, on the Blue Chopsticks label; David Grubbs' Drag City affiliate.

Creep Mission

David Grubbs, one of the two masterminds behind Gastr Del Sol as well as a superb music writer, presents an album of explorative guitar pieces, sketched out with the assistance of boundary-pushers like Eli Keszler on drums and Nate Wooley on trumpet. Partially composed and partially improvised, but all fascinating and exciting. Creep Mission is released by Blue Chopsticks.

David Grubbs

Thinker and guitarist David Grubbs presents six mostly instrumental pieces for electric guitar on Primrose. Half of the album also features the highly combustible drumming of Eli Keszler, and the tracks performed include a setting of a Walt Whitman poem and an arrangement of the 14th century maestro Guillame de Machaut! How’s that eh? On Blue Chopsticks.
