Brilliant selections. My top pick is the Toshiki Kadomatsu track.

Oh man this is good. Mr. TERRORDISCO referred me to Japs Onry 3 and I dug my way to the beginning. 10 minutes in and I'm already in love.

Whoever Sumiko Yamagata is, she's a mixture of Björk as a kid and Donna Summer. Heady stuff.

I'm fortunate enough to be living in Japan for the time being. It's hard to explain the significance this music takes on.

Do you have any way of posting the Awakening album by Hiroshi Sato on this blog? I'd love to hear it.
