asyncAs one-third of Yellow Magic Orchestra and an Academy Award-winning composer for his work on the soundtrack for The Last Emperor, synth pop innovator Ryuichi Sakamoto is among the most groundbreaking artists to have emerged since the late 70s. A musician's musician, Ryuichi Sakamoto has created intriguing musical unions with artists such as David Sylvian, Iggy Pop, Tony Williams, Bootsy Collins, Jacques Morelenbaum and many others.
async is Ryuichi Sakamoto's first studio album in eight years. This is his most personal release as it follows a long fight against cancer from which Ryuichi Sakamoto emerged with a renewed and passionate creative energy.
What kind of sounds/music do I want to listen to?
async is the answer to this question Ryuichi has asked himself for the past several years. This is the album he is the most proud of which synthesizes all of his musical and sound interests. This is a journey through analog synth, the sounds of things and of places, an imaginary soundtrack to an Andrei Tarkovsky film and many others musical surprises.LP 1

How To Live With A PhantomHow to Live with a Phantom is a bold stylistic departure, even for an artist whose career has been defined by them. It is a single-minded exploration of the sounds of 1970s radio pop from around the globe, combining American folk-rock and the evocative Japanese pop music that was influenced by it, but simultaneously referencing everything from French pop to Afro-funk, tropicalia, Krautrock and the lighter side of psychedelia. Most of the songs are built around Sakamoto's hypnotic electric-bass grooves (he learned to play for these recordings), a crisp drum set and bubbling percussion, layered with dreamy guitars and vintage synthesizers, and topped by meticulously arranged female vocal harmonies, horns, and Sakamoto's own languid yet deeply expressive lead vocals. It's a set that's both sun-drenched and full of melancholy, and while the musical references and inspirations may be clear, How to Live with a Phantom is a wholly original album that will connect to a broad spectrum of listeners - from folk and pop aficionados to world music fans, psych-heads and many more.

Let's Dance Raw
Japanese Singer-Songwriter, Multi-instrumentalist's
Follow-up To 2012's How To Live With A Phantom
Japanese singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Shintaro
Sakamoto returns with a new full-length, Let's Dance Raw, which
Other Music Recording Co. (distributed by Fat Possum) releases on
September 16. The album is the follow-up to Sakamoto's solo debut,
the otherworldly folk-pop masterpiece How to Live with a Phantom
(2012, Other Music).
While How to Live with a Phantom was the first many around the
globe knew of Sakamoto, he has long been an icon in his homeland,
having long fronted the psychedelic phenomenon Yura Yura Teikoku,
a Tokyo-based band that emerged from Koenji's legendary UFO
Club scene and, across their 20-year trajectory, achieved mainstream
success throughout the country. Following the group's break-up in
2010, Sakamoto began working on How to Live with a Phantom, a bold
stylistic departure that eschewed Yura Yura Teikokou's psychedelic
freak-outs for a much quieter and harder-to-define sound.
From first glimpse of the cover of Let's Dance Raw, it's clear that
once again, we are entering uncharted territory. The record's sleeve,
painted by Sakamoto, features the artist sitting upon a black throne,
a steel guitar resting on his knee like a child being protected from
the ominous mushroom cloud of smoke billowing behind him.
A grinning skull has replaced Sakamoto's face. This dichotomy of
bright, innocent beauty and subtle perversity is the essence of Let's
Dance Raw, with Sakamoto moving even further from the tough
underground power-trio psychedelic rock of his former band.
He hinted at the new sound throughout his solo debut, and here
the music is blown wide open, with the steel guitar as the unifying
force throughout. Sakamoto purchased and learned how to play the
instrument just prior to writing and recording Let's Dance Raw, and
it enriches the post-apocalyptic exotica on these ten songs, fusing
together the bright and breezy shimmer of Hawaiian slack-key hula
melodies, the dusty shuffle of southwestern desert blues, and the
space-age bachelor-pad music of postwar suburban dreamers. The
result is an album that revisits the soundtracks of musical escapism
made popular in postwar American and Japanese cultures-and
deftly updates them.
It's all anchored by deep, jazzy grooves straight out of a 1970s
AM radio broadcast, and peppered with flourishes of Brazilian and
Latin percussion throughout. Atop the music, Sakamoto sings of the
human race's downfall, the weight of the lyrics made contrastingly
perverse via duets with robotic vocoder voices and helium-voiced
cartoon chipmunks cooing in an unsettling fashion alongside him.
While Sakamoto once again handles the bulk of the instrumental
duties, faithful drummer and percussionist Yuta Suganuma also
returns for this set, as well as bassist AYA, on loan from fellow Japanese
psychedelic explorers OOIOO.1. Future Lullaby

Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence SoundtrackDuring World War II, British soldier Jack Celliers (David Bowie) is captured by Japanese forces and held in a prison camp. The officers become intrigued with Celliers' open defiance in the face of their old-world ideas about cowardice and shame. Composer Ryuichi Sakamoto is one of the world's best musicians. He creates music with a unique style that combines classical, symphonic composition, Japanese traditional sounds and experimental electronic music. The soundtrack also contains a vocal performance by David Sylvian, best remembered as leader of the popular U.K. rock band Japan.1. Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence

Following the success of 2014's Birdman (Winner of four Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Director), director Alejandro G. Iñárritu pushes the limits of film making with the survival epic The Revenant. Starring Leonardo DiCaprio (Titanic, Wolf of Wall Street), Tom Hardy (Mad Max: Fury Road, The Dark Knight Rises) and shot in the frozen Canadian wilderness with only natural lighting, The Revenant is a story of loss, revenge and resilience in the face of impossible odds against the furies of man and nature itself. The film is heavily favored to be a critical darling as awards season gets under way. Director Iñárritu has chosen to forgo almost all dialogue in favor of a gorgeous soundscape and a sweeping score. A film of this magnitude deserves a composer who understands creative artistry and unbridled passion. Japanese master and Oscar winner Ryuichi Sakamoto (Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence, The Last Emperor) fits the bill perfectly. Along with fellow Yellow Magic Orchestra member and frequent collaborator Alva Noto, Sakamoto has created a gripping soundtrack that is sure to be a treat for the winter crowds. Bryce Dessner (writer for Kronos Quartet and the LA Phil) also supplies additional music.
This is a limited pressing of 3,000 copies on pearlescent colored vinyl (one translescent blue, one cloud white).LP 1

Moody CoupCo La is the primary project of musician and producer Matt Papich, whose
explorations of sample-based electronic music have culminated in Moody
The emotional palette of Moody Coup, Papich's second album and rst for
Software Recording Co., is more complex than its exuberant predecessor
Daydream Repeater (NNA Tapes 2011). Where that record's relentlessly
bucolic tone drew from the saccharine core of reggae, exotica, and 60s girl
groups, the bedrock of Moody Coup is elusive and abstract.
The various genre coinages that have been tagged to Co La's music before
- new exotica, Avant-luxury, furniture music, etc. - fail to accommodate the
brainier obsessions behind Moody Coup's genesis. A new brand of alchemy
occurs in the album, where cryptic sources are enhanced and embellished
to a point of transcendence. This departure is the brilliant process o of Co
La's unpredictable electronic music.
Highlights of Moody Coup include Remarkable Features, which
consolidates the prior seismic scope of Daydream Repeater into a dance
oor standout. Deaf Christian transforms a Neil Sedaka doo-wopper into
a mesmerizingly dark House cut, complete with synth chasms and haunting
voice chants (supplied here and throughout the record by Angel
Deradoorian). The meticulously crafted Suspicious ventures into more
calming pastures -- an extra dimensional, dubbed-out take on the Psychic
TV gem by the same name.
At the outset of Moody Coup, Sukiyaki (To Die For) melodically alludes
to the Kyu Sakamoto song Sukiyaki." The original was penned as a
mournful assessment of post-war Japan's relationship to the US, albeit
dressed by Sakamoto as a love song. Ironically, Sukiyaki became a hit
oversees in the US and was later covered by A Taste of Honey. Rather than
translating the lyrics, A Taste of Honey set new words to the original
melody. (Stranger still, the word Sukiyaki itself refers to a Japanese hot
It's important to note that the wide range of reference sources does not
serve Moody Coup as a supercial demonstration of Papich's eclectic taste.
Instead, all of the micro pieces function mosaically, creating an impression
at a macro level that is extremely potent as music as well as concept. Co
La's intellectual obsessions are rooted in questions about how music is
dilated by the cultures who created it and the power structures that shape
those cultures (see Sukiyaki), while his musical obsessions are always
rooted in the sensual, the beautiful and the immediate.
Papich describes the working Co La method on Moody Coup as
"employing the hegemony of delete." He likes to be interrupted, and is
fond of working in places where domestic concerns are on equal terms with
studio practice. Much of Moody Coup was made in the kitchen of Papich's
Baltimore home -- a place where he describes having the "best
interruptions." Assistant to Papich's production was friend Joe Williams,
who programmed and performed all synths. Tracks were additionally
consolidated from eld recordings, samples and composed in Ableton Live
and mixed in Brooklyn at Gary's Electric Studio, located at the Software HQ.1. Sukiyaki To Die For

OpeningFor years, I've imagined the work I do in music, photography, and video all coming into one space, says music-tech guru Christopher Willits from his home in San Francisco. It's an ambition that many musicians have aspired to, but nonetheless seems especially befitting of a worldly polymath like Willits. I believe that sound and light, when used intentionally, have the power to transform and inspire our imaginations, he continues. I believe that art has an ability to awaken our connection to everything. And that is exactly what he has set out to do with OPENING, the veteran Ghostly artist's immersive new audio-visual project.
Across seven tracks of widescreen ambient music, 45 minutes of visuals shot over four years in multiple countries, seven bespoke photographs, and a multi-sensory live performance, Willits has conceived and produced something which might better be thought of as an experience than a simple album. Of course, OPENING does feature Willits' latest music since Ancient Future, his 2012 collaboration with Japanese pianist Ryuichi Sakamoto, and the vibrant, enveloping sounds we've come to expect from him are on full display. The quiet majesty of Vision ushers us into the sacred world Willits created, a living universe which billows and heaves in the corners of slow-grooving songs like CLEAR and CONNECT or the
textural minutiae and harmonic subtleties in GROUND. Closing out the album, WIDE and RELEASE o!er the listener a gentle comedown through 15 cumulative minutes of transcendent audio, with Willits' delicate guitar manipulations breathing life into the aether of prickly atmospheres and soft-glowing synths.
The other integral facet to the experience of OPENING is Willits' visual work. After building a library of footage and images from his travels around California, Hawaii, Japan, and Thailand, Willits will unveil for the first time a portion of his videos as an abstract film, the seven scenes of which each correspond with a song and photo from the album. The
45-minute piece uses music and a first-person perspective to tell what Willits calls a very ambiguous story, much in the vein of ground-breaking experimental films Koyaanisqatsi and Baraka. Taken as a whole, OPENING is unlike anything Willits has accomplished before, and maybe that's because the audio-visual project is about expanding one's mind to become something new. Or, as Willits puts it, OPENING is about transformation, the experience of changing oneself to be more of who you know you can be, and, ultimately, the joy that comes with that change.1. Vision

First Pressing Of 1,000 Numbered Copies On 180 Gram Blue Vinyl, Black Vinyl Thereafter
Call Me By Your Name, the new film by Luca Guadagnino, is a sensual and transcendent tale of first love, based on the acclaimed novel by AndrÉ Aciman.
Summer of 1983, Northern Italy. An American-Italian is enamored by an American student who comes to study and live with his family. Together they share an unforgettable summer full of music, food, and romance that will forever change them.
The film received critical acclaim upon its release, being already positively compared to Brokeback Mountain and Moonlight. Critics praised in particular Chalamet, Hammer and Stuhlbarg's performances, Guadagnino's direction and the screenplay. It will be released in the United States on November 24, 2017. It was released in the U.K on October 27, 2017.
Luca Guadagnino wanted the film's music to be connected to Elio, a young pianist who likes to transcribe and adapt pieces in order to get close to Oliver. The music is used to reflect the time, the characters' family, level of education and the kind of canon they would be a part of.
Guadagnino found himself resonating with Sufjan Stevens' lyricism through his work and initially asked Stevens to record an original song. Eventually, Stevens contributed three songs to the soundtrack: Visions of Gideon, which was used at the end of the film, Mystery of Love, which was featured in the film's first trailer and a new rendition of Futile Devices with piano. Stevens penned the songs by using the script, the book, and the conversations with the director about the characters. It marks Sufjan Stevens' first soundtrack for a feature film.
The soundtrack also features songs by Ryuichi Sakamoto, Giorgio Moroder, The Psychedelic Furs and many others.
The vinyl package of Call Me By Your Name includes a poster, an insert and the 180 gram records are housed in 2 exclusive printed innersleeves.LP 1
