Higuchi, Keiko / Cris X – “Melt” – [Musik Atlach]
Five track CD from 2010. Two experimental artists join sonic forces with piano, vocals, and various other sounds including some looping and samples. It moves slowly but powerfully. Haunting and pleasant at the same time. The second track, “Sister/you left me so insane” will give you goosebumps.
