Artist: MAKOTO, KAWABATA
Title: White Summer Of Love Dreamer
Format: LP
Label: Blackest Rainbow
Country: UK
Price: $24.00
"Brand new LP from Kawabata Makoto, his second for Blackest Rainbow following on nicely from where 2008s Rainbow Of Love left off. White Summer of Love Dreamer continues to develop Kawabatas experimentation into psychedelic drone music using a variety of instruments. Across the two tracks on this LP, Kawabata seamlessly uses acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bouzouki, sarangi, tambura, organ, hurdy-gurdy, electronics, field recording, and his voice to create a stunning soundscape of hazy summer days with cascading repetitive acoustic guitars, swirling drones, channeled vocals. White Summer of Love Dreamer comes housed in a deluxe heavyweight tip on old style jacket adorned in photography by Joe Blanchard, and is pressed on heavyweight virgin vinyl. Limited to approx. 500 copies." -Blackest Rainbow

Artist: MAKOTO, KAWABATA
Title: Astro Love & Infinite Kisses
Format: Double LP
Label: VHF
Country: USA
Price: $26.00
"Kawabata Makoto emerges from a period of relative quiet with his first widely available solo release in several years, the blockbuster Krautrock-flavored Astro Love & Infinite Kisses. This lovely and impressionistic record showcases the other side of Makotos outrageous works with Acid Mothers Temple. Taking cues from classics of the genre like Tangerine Dreams Phaedra and Steve Hillages Rainbow Dome Musick, "Dos Nurages" is the albums centerpiece, a 41-minute hypnotic epic, with echoplexd guitar anchoring a stream of expertly done glissando. The title track is a darker drone in the tradition of Kawabatas Inui series of releases for VHF. "Woman From Dream Island" closes the record with a thick buzz of tamboura overlaid with trippy backwards guitar, before giving way to a gentle, fingerpicked acoustic coda." - VHF.
