Shibata & Asuna: Grace Park

Shibata & Asuna: Grace Park

Looks like this came out back in April, but I just came across it now, and anyway it seems like more of a winter album than a spring one. It’s on Chihei Hatakeyama’s label, so expect warm yet wintry guitar drone and field recordings, and expect it to be incredibly lovely. About six minutes in it sounds like there’s sleigh bells and some sort of rhythmic wind-like sound, and it gets heavier and more psychedelic, and then later it’s calmer and there’s birds and children playing and acoustic guitars. It keeps bouncing between trippy effects and more contemplative moments. Whenever it actually starts getting snowy out, as well as when the snow melts away into spring, this is an album to keep on deck. Stream/purchase at Bandcamp.
