Lynchian Japanese MP3

It opens with the misfunction of some broken old, little machine and then fades, countintuitively, into impressionistic piano. The latter, with its gentle daybreak melody, brings to mind the soundtracks of Angelo Badalementi, and that quietly instrusive mechanical sound reaffirms the association by focusing further on something akin to Badalamenti’s work with director David Lynch. The track is titled “Shousetsu” (MP3), off the album Odori, which is out from Japanese musician radicalfashion (born Hirohito Ihara) this month on Hefty Records. More info at
