***** Yodaka - Yodaka *****

2009-06-30 08:52:59 UTC
Born in Hiroshima, Daisuke started off as the composer and guitarist of postrock band Yodaka in 2001. Having evaluated their sound, they have been praised by Jim O’Rourke. Being inspired by their psychedelic sound due to a postrock approach and by Maurizio Bianchi, Daisuke started his solo project in 2004. As a solo artist his idea is to create not only acoustic, but also electronic filmy soundscapes and atmospheres. He is doing that by melting together a variety of classic instruments, spoken word snippets, and crisp beats. With a proper amount of ambient music, all of these form an exquisite sound experience. One day, while his tracks were selling on several CD-R’s, a honorable moment for Daisuke occurred when Ryuichi Sakamoto introduced a demo of Daisuke’s one lyrical opus ‘April.#02’ in his radio show Radio Sakamoto on Tokyo’s J-Wave channel. ------------------- ( By all means do not miss this one.

Missed the Boat by Erik Kramer

On Saturday, May 20, multi-instrumentalist and lauded bass player Erik Kramer released his debut studio endeavor, an EP entitled ‘Missed the Boat.’ The Brooklyn-based musician has an especially eclectic sound, one that employs the talent of a slew of musicians: saxophone, trombone, viola, trumpet, back-up vocalists - they’re all there. An experimental record through and through, ‘Missed the Boat’ is an indie record quite unlike anything else that’s come across my desk in recent months.

The Great Long Distance by John D. Reedy

The Great Long Distance is an audible recollection of the first 12 months of a long distance relationship, including the highs and lows and moments in between. It is a journal without words, each of the 12 tracks representing each month respectively. Inspired by the format of NIN's "Ghosts I-IV", the album is a sonic tapestry of different moods and themes, with various recurring motifs and the subtle melding of synthesizer and samples; the result something not quite classical, ambient or electronic - rather, an eclectic blend of the three. For fans of Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm and later Ulver
