Let’s put the otaku talk aside (we’ll come back with figure news and Vocaloid CD reviews soon, don’t worry) to discover one of the best record by a japanese artist released in 2012.
Fugenn And The White Elephants is a one-man-project. “Prays” is his second album but he also collaborated to some compilations (Tribute to Ryuichi Sakamoto, Tribute to Antonio Carlos Jobim… classy stuff!).
Fugenn And The White Elephants offer some relaxing and slightly dislocated ambient electronic music. The twelve tracks offer solid IDM mixed with beautiful string orchestration, intricate beat making with uncluttered soft melodies.
This record is like sonic cotton wool. It will rest your ears and mind. It is a perfect record to fall asleep to.
