- A Distant Loss by Hakobune

I was commenting the other day about how small and delicate a lot of Japanese music seems to sound. Not so with Hakobune, an ambient guitarist from Tokyo who makes great big monolithic slabs of ambience from his 6 string and an ever growing collection of effects pedals. The music is a grey twirling tangle of sound, sweeping and swooping and ebbing and flowing.
Unusually for this kind of music the pieces are short and ebb away after about 3 minutes which gives a nice, concise feel to proceedings. All the pieces pursue similar sonic territories, deep thick layers of glutinous guitar circling round a melodic phrase drifting in and out of consciousness. Perfect music to drift into a lovely dream state to. Very, very limited cassette on Dark Era tapes.
