miki odagiri "fables" @ creation centre.
cat# ctr-ah miki odagiri "fables" _august 2007
1. vapouring rooms right/left
2. floweless island
3. hoarse wind
miki odagiri has made appearances on some experimental music from japan compilation. and we are beyond happy to have this EP to give to you. violin, pianos, various things, and computer go into this sweet & lovely EP "fables". the songs twist in turn in ways not normally heard in experimental music. maybe even boarding on pop music, but with pop structure totally thrown out the window. fans of nobukazu takamura should listen for sure. it could fall into the childisc style, but with all real instruments instead.

mesomeso "soramimi" @ creation centre.
cat# ctr-ag mesomeso "soramimi" _june 2007
rom tokyo, mesomeo's "soramimi" is a meditative trip brought on by soft acoustics and kahimi karie type vocals. guitar, accordion, bells, and toys generate sounds for this EP. its quiet and floating in mood & feel. mesomeso is also known for her handling of the accordion in shugo tokumaru's "magic band". but she can also be caught around tokyo playing solo with the likes of sawako and cokiyu.

cat# ctr-ae schroeder_pro "polite constructions" _may 2007
3. luxurious hour
schroeder_pro from helsinki, has scripted a bad night. i'm a naturally nervous, and anctious fellow. i don't always sleep all peacefully. these songs are tense. they make me feel paranoid, and nervious. minimal textures that bloome from, someplace i normally wouldn't want to face up to. but these are the aspects i like about these tracks. they articulate a part, i think of many peoples lifes. sleepless nights, and restless mornings.

pandatone "the outside and i EP" @ creation centre.
cat# ctr-ae pandatone "the outside and i EP" _march 2007
1. You've Given This
2. Not The Last Train
3. I Refuse To Meet You Half way
4. Over I Rolled, And
mostly recorded outside of his apartment. including such exciting locations as his roof, and hallway. braving cold weather (you play a guitar in windy 30 degrees (f) for a while), and requests to be social. these little collections of songs are just fine to wake up to. though we recommend you stay in bed.

the number "small EP" @ creation centre.
cat# ctr-ad the number "small EP" _february 2007
1. two boats
2. a dissonance and glisten
3. morning music refills
where in the world is this coming from? what the hell do i reference to sell you on this stuff? nothing. it's that good. chopped-up instruments, found objects from around the house. bounce and pulse through the insanely unique vision of modern music by "the number". an off-kilter sound track to life in japan. it's as equally unsettling as it is fun and charming.

marxy "beaus in disarray" @ creation centre.
marxy "beaus in disarray" EP _november 2006
1. Intro To
2. Did You Know Exactly What I Had In Mind?
3. The Level One
4. Several Pieces
5. We Won't Be Sold (Second Verse)
6. My Learned Little Princess
Six tracks of melodic pop fragments assembled upon the red shag carpet of a Tokyo suburban bedroom. Old synths and acoustic guitars battle it out, but memorable melodies and vocal harmonies ultimately come out as the big winners. On this ep, marxy starts clearing the road from his debut album "kyoshu nostalgia" to his upcoming full-length.

hi subscribers to this RSS feed. there is a new release on creation-centre by japanese, by way of cali, trio "oto" available for free download.
oto "stetch #1" @ creation centre.
oto "sketch #1" EP _ june 2006
1. My Blue Plane
though the title suggests ruff & unfinished ideas, nothing could be farther from the truth. the trio of oto create complicated tones and textures with real life instruments. computers? they are for losers! this EP would best be enjoyed on a late summer evening, sitting by a river. alone, or with friends.

and here i thought it was pointless @ creation centre.

1. I Forgot If We Dreamed
2. Last To Remain
3. Together And Lonely
4. We Fuking Love You
with no place to set foot. pandatone's room become the instrument and focus of the pointless EP. anything and everything he could get his hands on was record and manipulated into these recordings. then is joining by vocalist "loring" to create a sonic path suited towards spring.
