Out of stock

Very sick comp of new Japanese music - selected by a Japanese person, released on a Japanese label. Enter a world unknown!

"Birdfriend is a cassette label run by Japanese musician / composer Koshiro Hino, aka YPY, who is also a founding member of the Osaka band Goat. This compilation features 18 tracks by Japanese artists, from 2013-2017, previously available only on hard-to-find cassettes on the Birdfriend label, now available to you, the curious and courageous listener, worldwide on EM Records.

Rejoice and enjoy the fractured rhythms and future-now timbres, questing intelligences and D.I.Y. energy, conveyed to you through hand-made synths, custom electronics, synths and samplers. Compiled by Hino, who also provides liner notes and cover art, these Japanese artists share a love of texture, semi-skewed rhythm, simple-yet-evolving structure, and a sense of humour; yet despite these similarities, there is a great variety across this release, making for an exciting and cohesive musical experience."
