Tokyo’s FJORDNE and Hiroshima’s stabilo provide two tracks apiece to this CD. The combination works well - the former’s billowing, 30s-jazz-club piano playing and dense sound collages play nicely off of stabilo’s murkier ambiences. There is more than a shade of early Eno here. Hand-stamped, lovingly packaged and comes with a download.

CD £10.49

Limited CD on Sound In Silence. Edition of 150 handmade/hand-numbered copies in cardboard envelope with the front cover image printed on a polaroid style photo paper, with insert, download code coupon and a Sound In Silence card.

8/10 Jamie Staff review, 18 January 2017

Well, what have we here then… more loveliness from the Sound in Silence stable with the latest of their hand-stamped and handmade series of cds. This time it’s the turn of Japan’s FJORDNE & stabilo (Fujimoto Shunichiro, when he’s not shouting, and Yasutica Horibe) to wow us with their approach to stately electroacoustic music making.

FJORDNE / Fujimoto is up first with the titular ‘Andrew’ kicking (toe-poking?) things off ever so gently with a slightly wonky piano-led refrain not too dissimilar melodically to ‘Away in a Manger’. The slow jazz version that is, complete with laptop sounds and the soft tinkling of tiny metal bell-like things to lull us through this dull mid-January. Things soon descend into slightly off-kilter atonal territory before swiftly picking up the main theme, like a tentative ice skater who suddenly remembers he can actually do this.

Next, Stabilo highlights [much like the pens of the same name, geddit?!] his Boss (sorry) electronic / post-rock leanings with some warm fuzzy droney things wrapping themselves around a thoughtfully picked out tune on the ol’ Joanna. Giving me that pleasingly comforting feel on a grey Wednesday. It’s just ‘As Well’. Please don’t fire me, Clint. Then we become ‘Aquainted’ once more with Fujimoto’s beautiful jazzy keyboard and augmenting electro-tinkles, before stabilo steps to the fore once more for the final cut ‘Alison’. For some slightly more abrasive drone and soothing piano. Pretty damn nice.
