Yasuaki Shimizu

Kiren

    Following the release of his widely regarded solo classic Kakashi, from 1982, and the otherworldly Utakata No Hibi, by Mariah in 1983, he went into the studio the following year with frequent collaborators, producer Aki Ikuta and Morio Watanabe (bassist of Mariah), to record a mystifying collection of experimental dance music.

    Utilizing cutting-edge technology and studio trickery, Kiren showcases Shimizu's trademark playfulness, marrying richly layered production techniques to off-kilter, sometimes traditional sounding rhythms and melodies. Unreleased until now, Kiren represents an important period of Shimizu's artistic expression, an artist at his peak, while successfully exploring the intersections of fusion, synthpop, new wave, and jazz.

    After blessing deep music archeologists all over the globe with the much needed reissue of Mariah's "Utakata No Hibi" last year, Palto Flats are back, teaming up with New General Catalogue to release "Awaawaa", a new record by Woo, the longstanding project of British brothers Mark and Clive Ives. Featuring never before heard recordings from Woo’s archives, "Awaawaa" sees the band at their most evocative and psychedelic - presenting a suitelike, atmospheric collection of stunning miniatures. Recorded in South London during 1975-82, "Awaawaa" lines up chronologically with other Woo releases, such as "Whichever Way You Are Going, You Are Going Wrong," and touches upon synth, ambient, electronics, dub, and even krautrock. Following re-issues on Drag City and Emotional Rescue, "Awaawaa" presents a new chapter in Woo’s celebrated discography, further distilling the brother’s unique and otherworldy vision.
