aoki takamasa + tujiko noriko
June 4, 2006
Several months ago, on a dark and cold winter's night, I heard Aoki Takamasa + Tujiko Noriko's track, "fly variation" from their album 28 on Radio-Canada's Espace Musique. The radio was humming quietly in the background but when it came on and I heard the murmurings of a sweet voice, I was compelled to turn it up. Their music is dreamy, piqued with electronic beats and synth sounds. It is the perfect album to wake up to, to listen to on the commute to work, when entertaining or getting ready to go out. It is innovative but easy, ambient listening with no hint of pretension.
You can listen to their best tracks off their label's (FatCat Records) site.
