foundland (CD, £17.50)label: Flau
'FOUNDLAND' is Flau's fourth release in its compilation series. This wonderful compilation album is a collection of live recordings taken from Flau's famous music event 'FOUNDLAND', which showcases beautiful quiet sounds. 'Foundland' is a new platform for fresh and established artists, presented by Flau and HUTU, with sounds produced by Fly sound x TAGUCHI. Mainly held in VACANT in Harajuku, Tokyo, 'Foundland' over the years has gathered many wonderful artists from both local and overseas to showcase their stunning sounds, including Sharon Van Etten, Grouper, James Blackshaw, TAPE, Florencia Ruiz, Eiko Ishibashi, Tujiko Noriko etc. This beautiful compilation features mainly Japanese female vocalists, like Tenniscoats, PoPoyans, Rima Kato and Predawn, with overseas artists Aspidistrafly, MayMay, and Rachael Dadd also joining the list. As these live recordings were done in the event venue VACANT, which is graciously surrounded by trees, we can almost feel the warmth of these trees in the live recorded sounds... they are so delicate and yet heart-warming. We welcome you, to our wonderful FOUNDLAND. The CD jacket is an original paper sleeve including six random types of beautiful photos.
