There’s a certain ‘Flau’ sound isn’t there? The Japanese label seem adept at finding unusual examples of their particular brand of micro-music that sounds somehow Japanese even though its difficult to say why or how. Even when they veer off genre there is something distinctive linking it together.

Tohoku’s Machinone is another fantastic find for the label. The album is made up of acoustic finger-picked guitar vignetes, occasionally splashed with cello, flute or other delicate accompaniment. It creates a wonderful mood of displaced solitude, the soundtrack to the first night spent in a foreign city as you view it vas an outsider. I almost wonder whether this quiet Japanese music is a result of their surroundings, an antidote to the noise of the city or by necessity due to living conditions. Whatever the cause, the result is a series of beautifully played classical guitar evocations that you can’t help but fall in love with. A delight.
