Welcome back. Let's try this again, shall we? Once more with feeling?

Posts from here on are more likely to be shorter and more frequent, as per the constant suggestion of such from my personal peanut gallery. Let me know.

glisten: Himuro

Himuro - One Day of the Beetle

Himuro - "Button of Reset"

Listen to two more tracks from Mild Fantasy Violence, courtesy Zod Records.
MFV is surprisingly difficult to come by; Zod doesn't sell it and I didn't have much luck finding anyone else who did. Any leads?

NEW NOTE: Zod CAN fulfill orders for this disc. Email them at info@zodrecords.com and tell 'em th' Hut sent you!

Read the tinymixtape review of Mild Fantasy Violence.
I agree with most of Dave's take on the album, but think he's giving Himuro's ingenuity and mixing skills short shrift. While nostalgia is, no doubt, one of the factors that make Himuro's musical adventures so engaging, it's his deft appropriation of Aphex-y wet clicks and shrugs, the strangely organic-rendered-from-circuitry Daft ambience and the mad pop-lockin' Bambaata beats that kept me coming back for more.

Read this brief interview and overview of Himuro's work.
