Japanese Minimalist MP3

The 12k label, run by musician Taylor Deupree, has posted a full-length preview track off Letter of Sounds, the forthcoming album by Fourcolor (born Keiichi Sugimoto, part of the quartet Minamo and the duo Fonic). “Vignette” (MP3) is a through-composed marvel, developing from digital underbrush of sharp bleeps and warm tones to incur its own slowly motivated sense of rhythm, which has a funky kind of hesitance to it, to eventually provide a setting for a cautious guitar line. Great stuff. And to keep up to date on all things 12k-related, keep an eye on Deupree’s blog, 12kblog.wordpress.com.
