radiosonde Radiosonde (CD, £15.95)label: Flau
Radiosonde is made up of Hayati Aoki and Takashi Tsuda, whose individual works can be found on labels like Grainfield and Starnet Muzik only in Japan. After the release of the successful debut album "Sanctuary" in 2009, the duo came together again a year later and conceived this beautiful second album. "Radiosonde" is a brilliant document of delicate improvisational takes of guitar and autoharp by the duo. With subtle edits and heartwarming sound recording, Radiosonde gently portray in this album the landscape of sounds, watching from a floating weather balloon above. And thus appear the sense of freedom and the vibrant feeling of joy. Radiosonde is also blessed with wonderful support from some of the most talented artists around: Sawako (12K/anticipate) and Hiromits Shoji(Soundworm) appear as guest musicians, while the brilliant painter / illustrator, Nakaban, contributes to the gorgeous album jacket artwork.
