Pale Cocoon – 繭
Another puzzle piece to the pastoral, experimental sounds sweeping modernizing worlds in the 1980s. This release by Tsuyoshi Kawabata brings to mind shifting seasons of a Japanese countryside, idyllic water features, and the doubt inherent when reflecting on the magical versus the modernizing world.
Originally released on cassette, Mayu has earned a cult following and is being presented in a 2LP gatefold by Incidental Music and conatala. Both instrumental and vocal music grace this collection, with an emphasis on objective tonal works.
