Music from Japan

In March, I listened to music from Japan. I'd just bought Shigeto's excellent Lineage (and got the t-shirt), so I felt it was a suitable time to investigate music from other Japanese artists.

I plugged in "Takagi Masakatsu" into Last.fm (an artist I discovered from my FatCat inspired month), and took note of anything which tickled my fancy.

First of all, Sakerock blew me away. I could not stop listening to Kaishain (see video below). The rest of the album is excellent, too (but unfortunately not on Spotify).

I also discovered Cornelius, whose album, Point, is brilliant.

I've put together a Spotify playlist of this month's Japanese music, which also includes Sakura by Susumu Yokota. Enjoy!
