Hakobune returns to Polar Seas with this beautiful 3 song LP. These songs have been with me for the last few months and have been such a comforting presence during such a tumultuous time. 3 blissful pieces for guitar with gentle overlapping tones and field recordings, ending with the glorious side-long piece oichi. I’ve listened to this more times than I can count this spring, and I’m so happy to share it with you all.
The pieces are named after rivers and streams near the artist’s home, places of solitude.
Edition of 200 on translucent blue vinyl.
