Album Review

Kudo, Reiko – “Rice Field Silently Riping… ” – [Majikick Records]

lombard   11/10/2005   A Library, CD

Longtime avant garde Japanese psych scenester Reiko Kudo presents this beautiful solo release, with some help from husband Tori Kudo (Maher Shalal Hash Baz) and others. This is subtle, folky beauty with spare vocals, piano, bass, and some harp, strings, percussion, trumet, clarinet, guitar, and euphonium. The female vocals call to mind a Japanese version of a stripped down retro folk artist ala Vashti Bunyan. Simple lyrics create an understated mood. Quite lovely.
