Hello. First up is a CD by Chihei Hatakeyama on the up and coming Under the Spire label (rapidly shaping up to being one of the funnest and bestest new labels we've been stocking in ages). After a strong pedigree of releases on labels like Kranky and Room 40 here is his 4th album and it's a gorgeous beast. Packaged in a hand stamped and hand numbered arigato pak and numbered of 200 copies... well tasty. Musically it's really strong as over it's lush 40 minutes you get 3 tracks of ambient beauty which will keep you ambient drone heads sweet and happy for a wee while to come. Put simply 'August' is a bundle of deliciously warm ambient drone music which will leave you in some sort of happy blissed out trance. It's very delicate sounding, with tiny intrinsic changes keeping the music interesting and you the blissed out listener hooked from start to end. Enjoy it with headphones on and it takes you to a different place. This is some seriously good shit for anyone into ambience or drone music.

Chihei Hatakeyama....its hard to say if this is better than his other latest release 'Saunter' I guess the answer is that they are both utterly magnifient!!! here we have him using more softer sounds that merge with etheral meaning's.... best track is the final of the three listed asĀ 'a tube amp for an electric guitar', strange title, but for a brilliant experience in listening. Bravo to Under The Spire for getting this out in a lovely package also. If you dont buy this, it will be a sad loss to ya....
