Nagisa Ni Te:: Yosuga

After a four year break, Nagisa Ni Te’s seventh album Yosuga will be released on September 23rd. The Japanese duo of Shinji Shibayama and Masako Takeda deliver subtle instrumental variations ranging from folky acoustic strumming to psychedelic guitar riffs, resulting in a cross between progressive and folk rock. In the early 1980s, Shinji Shibayama performed “hyped up dada-psych” as part of Idiot O’Clock and then the more toned-down Hallelujahs. He also founded and still runs Org Records, the label responsible for bringing Eastern psych powers Maher Shalal Hash Baz to the world. With Maher Shalal Hash Baz’s help, with the musical contributions of many of their collective friends, and with the assistance of Shibayma’s now full-fledged cohort Masako Takeda in all things Nagisa Ni te, Shibayama recorded and released On The Love Beach, a slow and entrancing work pulling equally from American and British rock traditions. Thus was born Nagisa Ni te, which means “on the beach” in Japanese, an homage of sorts to Neil Young’s 1975 masterpiece.
