Japanese artist Aus AKA Yasuhiko Fukuzono has a new album out on his very own Flau label. After All begins with 'Water Paintings' which features Sylvain Chauveau on vocals. His vocal is deep and dark, almost gothic. Then the second track has a vocal (from Cokiyu I think) which is a really stark contrast. It's feminine, delicate and ghostly. Very pretty sounding which compliments Aus's sounds perfectly. Phil has just asked me if there is a name flying around for this pretty, twinkly electronica coming out of Japan. I've not heard one but I'm sure someone will put a tag on it at some point. So I dare say if you like the stuff on Flau and Schole then you'll like this. There are a lot more vocals on here than I was expecting but they're pleasant enough. The album includes collaberations from Craig Tattersall (The Remote Viewer / The Boats), Lindsay Anderson (L'altra),Andreas Berger (glim), Cokiyu, Geskia and Yukiko Okamoto. A very gentle and soothing album reminding us at time of Bjork and Mum.
