Artist: PHEW
Title: Light Sleep
Format: LP
Label: Mesh-Key
Country: USA
Price: $21.00
"Propulsive rhythms from early drum machines, whirring electronics and dreamlike vocals make for a jaw-dropping late-career masterpiece from legendary Japanese musician Phew, recorded solo at Phews home in Tokyo.

Phews career began in the late 1970s as lead singer of Osaka punk group Aunt Sally (whose only full-length was released by Vanity Records in 1979). Ryuichi Sakamoto produced her first solo release in 1980, a two-song single, and in 1981 Pass Records released her debut album, a bonafide classic recorded with original Can members Holger Czukay and Jaki Liebezeit at Conny Planks studio in Germany. Shes forged a singular path over the past thirty-plus years, collaborating with folks from DAF, Einstürzende Neubauten, Boredoms, Anton Fier, Bill Laswell and more. Its borderline sacrilegious to compare an artist as unique as Phew with anyone else, but for those unfamiliar with her work, “Light Sleep” might be described as a more animated Nico singing (in Japanese) for early Suicide.

Mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at D+M, Berlin. Full color jackets and inserts. 40 minutes running time. Edition of 500." - Mesh-Key.

"Available for the first time outside Japan, This 2003 hour-plus live recording captures (Yura Yura Teikoku) at the height of their powers" - Mesh Key. ⿿From Japan springs forth the greatest band in the world, Yura Yura Teikoku. I have profound love and respect for this band⿿s music and I hope it brings you as much joy as it has brought me.⿝ - Michio Kurihara, THE STARS/GHOST/DAMON&NAOMI guitarist. ⿿Yura Yura Teikoku is Japan⿿s sensational, psychedelic, pop-noise explosion that Western ears have never heard. The sheer amount of noise generated by these three mere men has become stuff of legend in Japan: only Yura Yura Teikoku could pull together a sound this brutal, this large and make it into something this meaningful, this unique.⿝ - W.D. Marx, THE FADER.
