Plutonic Rainbows

Ryuichi Sakamoto - async

Long-awaited album from this esteemed electronic artist. The tracks on the new album have an electro-acoustic feel and carry with them a ghostly melancholy that is always just out of reach.

Bleep Records:

The key to Sakamoto’s genius lies in his ability to transform the sounds of his instruments into objects that sound like they are being transmitted from some far off land, from the Monolake rebreather style heart beat of Zure through the haunted rainfall that cloaks the late night wonderings of Walker, the sounds within async are further testament if any were needed of the acute musical genius of Sakamoto.

The new album is available on vinyl as well as Audio CD and 24Bit 96kHz digital from Japanese site, Ototoy.
