Harutaka Mochizuki new CD

Harutaka Mochizuki CD “Flageolet Ni Tokeru Chocolate” E-Klageto

Limited to 150, comes in a 7 inch art with inserts

Attention : this one of the most beautiful album I’ve heard for months and probably my favorite with Mochizuki. It’s not a sax album, more like a diary mixing some sequences with sax, short songs, melodica and keyboard. If this one is a trip, it’s more like an invitation with meeting a soul in a small place. Nothing spectacular, sometimes  a bit like Namio Kudo, Mochizuki can move us with only a breath or the birth of a melody. Yes we love Mochizuki and find this album being probably his most personnal and poetic one.

Makoto Kawashima CDR

Makoto Kawashima CDR “Rain” Homo sacer

pro-CDR, this one is  Kawashima’s last statement, he considers this recording has a different one….Kawashima is really as one of the most uncompromised and talented sax player of these last years, he’s almost like a song-teller, far from intellectualism and the usual Kaoru Abe reference. Different from Urabe, slowly he’s showing a true identity. $14

Bunsuirei ltd CDR

Bunsuirei CDR ” Live 08112019at Nanahari” Tall Grass records

Bunsuirei is a trio leade by Yonju Miyaoky who’s 25 and live now in Osaka. Yonju who’s suffering from schizophrenia is a regular collaborator of Chie Mukai and that band opened a few times for Ché Shizu. Yonju is definitively a new name to discover who’s deely rooted in the 90’s scene, from Tori Kudo to Fushitsusha, Kousokuya and early Miminokoto. This CDr is more pop / folk oriented with a singular sensitivity. Homemade CDr like in the old days, limited to 50. You probably understood we love him here, other members here are Haruki Sakurai, Morio Tagami. Yonju is a name that will probably grow up in a near future.

Phew ltd cassette Vertical Jamming

Phew cassette “Vertical Jamming” Disciples

A scene-setter for a forthcoming LP of unheard material, Vertigo KO, coming soon on Disciples. Vertical Jamming rescues two expansive longform pieces from a tour only CD released in 2016, and adds a previously unreleased track, “Drone”.

Explaining the background to the music, Phew comments: “Drone was recorded in 2014. It is a track that expresses the mood of those days, guided by the sound of a very simple oscillator. At the time of the catastrophe in Japan in 2011 and the Fukushima nuclear accident, and the change of government in 2013, I didn’t feel like singing at that time, and instead started making music using a very simple oscillator. Cheers and Encore recorded alongside the album New World using two more complex synthesizers.

Recorded at Phew’s place in December 2015. Music by Phew. Originally issued on CD by Bereket and sold only at “A New World Tour” in 2016.

Kaoru Abe new CD 9770916@Ayler

Kaoru Abe CD (digipak) 9770916@Ayler, Sapporo – Doubt Music

– Doubtmusic has discovered a previously unreleased Kaoru Abe alto saxophone solo improvisation! This CD features a complete 30 minutes performance held in summer 1977 at a jazz cafe in Sapporo which was called “Ayler” and no longer exists since long time. We no longer talk about Abe’s voice ranging by ready-made musical concept. Even his silence has persuasiveness. His voice has an ubiquity which transcend new or old musical trends. We would like young music fans who have never heard of Kaoru Abe to listen to it. You will feel musical “something” you never notice.

Recorded on 16 September, 1977 at Ayler, Sapporo (recorded material provided by Mariko Nara).

Oto No Hajimari rare CD Takehisa Kosugi

V/A CD Oto no hajimari wo motomete 4 : Shigeru Sato Work – Sound 3 Co – 2005

These pieces were recorded between 1963 and 1973 at the NHK electronic music studio, Tokyo. Includes 12-page booklet with liner notes in Japanese. With Toshi ichiyanagi, Takehisa Kosugi, Akira Miyoshi, Minao Shibata…

This is the most popular CD of the series (8 CDS were released between 2001 & 2009) but this version was withdrawn from sale due to objections from Kosugi. His  stunning track was then replaced by one by Michael Ranta (excellent too !), and the album was re-released under a different catalog number.

Tamio Shiraishi CD Sora

Tamio Shiraishi CD “Sora” Relative Pitch

Tamio Shiraishi was, along with Keiji Haino, a founding member of the Japanese avant garde group Fushitsusha in the 1970s. His involvement with Fushitsusha was however transient and the experience and connections formed through it led him to choose the saxophone as his main instrument. In 1990 Shiraishi moved to New York where he now plays solo material at NYC subway stops and collaborative projects at other venues. His style may be characterized as a microtonal exploration of the altissimo-range, somewhat reminiscent of traditional Japanese Enka music, some odd bird calls sometimes mixed  or cut ups withh some environmental urban sounds.

Alien Brains CD

Alien Brains CD “Live a tthe Basement” VLZ produkt

Comes with a booklet including a recent interview with Nigel Jacklin. CD, edition of 200

Originally issued on cassette(Aeon,1982),Live At The Basement does indeed sound like it was recorded in a basement – metallic squeals, languorous clanging and echoes in excelsis. Suffused with suffocation and the mysterious darkness that only lo-fi can grant, idle whistling and muffled screams falling from the ceiling; rhythms are begun then abandoned. There is the distinct feel in one’s hand of the rusty tubularity of iron piping, like a suite for haunted Hallowe’en housing. Each lonely sound is truer than the one that came before it. Concentrated strangeness from one of the more remote locations on Earth one might expect to find concentrated strangeness. Hence the Alien, and the alienation. –Signal To Noise

Alien Brains was founded in 1979. Their first release was Menial Disorders (Deleted Records, 1980.) Around that time, Alien Brains founder Nigel Jacklin organized the legendary Throbbing Gristle concert at Oundle School which was released on Industrial Records. Following Menial Disorders Alien Brains released several more cassettes either privately or on Deleted Records including ‘Blatantly Nihilist,’ ‘IV: Natural Advantages,’ ‘Der Blaunk Teps,’ ‘British Interiors’ and ‘U.S.E.’ (Unusual Social Embraces) as well as contributing to several compilations. Alien Brains were ‘an abstract non-collective’ (rather than a group) and in addition to Nigel Jacklin also included Philip and Richard Rupenus (TNB), David Jackman (Organum), Mark Lancaster (Instant Automatons), Philip Sanderson (Storm Bugs), Allen Adams (Methods Of Execution) and Truus de Groot (Nasmak.) Nigel also worked with Dominic Guerin (SPK.) Alien Brains live appearances included The Basement in Newcastle, Centro Iberico in London and Ultras in Amsterdam. Alien Brains ceased in 1985.

Takashi Masubuchi & Shizuo Uchida

Takashi Masubuchi & Shizuo Uchida CD “Dripping Nocturne” Headlights records
Takashi Masubuchi – acoustic guitar
Shizuo Uchida – acoustic bass
Enigmatic duo, Shizuo is one of the most prolific musician for 3 decades, he played with Nijiumu and has a very personnal sound with gaps of silence and strangeness. Takashi Masubuchi is less well known for us but he’s a discreet guitarist and plays like a slowed down abstract blues. Here there’s sometimes some chaotic & percussive moments but we stay in a half awakened state.
