In the all-female duo Coa, Eddie Corman trades on volume and velocity in a howling rock beast that could well fit the bill soundtracking an apocalyptic horror movie. Both Eddie and Marcon first played together in an early incarnation of LSD-March, pysch-blasted legends of the Japanese underground. Combining their names to form a new endeavour into Japanese acid folk, Eddie and Marcon – as Eddie Marcon – have been working in much quieter tones to make delicate, gorgeous and esoteric music. Shining on Graveposts cradles the mysterious, melancholic air so unique to much Japanese music in intimate spaces. The graceful arc of Eddie’s guitar melodies entwined with the shuffle and swirl of Marcon’s percussion are the humble beginnings of rich atmospheres. Falling between half-tuned dreams and stark, crystalline beauty, these songs are rich with warmth, shot into spacey terrain with tender eccentricity and otherworldly charm. Eddie’s voice is a hushed, tingling thing, rising on occasion from its gentle soul to a more sweeping majesty. The subdued glow of Shining on Graveposts is enhanced with luminaries of Japan’s ever fertile music underground including appearances from members of the Boredoms, Coa and Test Pattern. Eddie Marcon exist in a space that is strangely timeless. With Shining on Graveposts, they conjure music with true feeling – immediately gorgeous but with an allure that might be familiar, but just out of reach. (Label info)
