Yokota, Susumu – “Magic Thread ” – [Leaf Label Ltd]
The latest from Yokota-san is hardly the latest from Yokota-san. This CD was actually recorded in ’98, and is just making its way into our library now. Herein lie an agent’s dozen (11) of sonic wonderments. The sounds are very well crafted and textured, but the songs seem to be lacking somewhat in depth. Perhaps they just aren’t meant to be songs, but soundscapes. In any case, your ear will snuggle up to the carefully crafted sounds and purr, even if your brain gets a bit impatient waiting for them to do something. Perhaps this is the intended didactic of minimalist techno…’
3-5 minute tracks, no words means no dirty words, and the sounds are soothing. Good on most shows – give it a spin!
