released February 28, 2019

A welcome return to the Muzan fold with another round of patient, warm sounds. There is a particular generosity to his work that allows for something magical to happen in front of you- slowly mixing pigments to create just the right hue. For those of you who have been lucky enough to see him live at any of Muzan’s “Yama no Oto” events under a full moon on a mountain with the sight of Nara and Ikoma glimmering below you’ll know what I mean. If you haven’t been able to take part, here’s your chance to grab hold of one part of it. Magic time.

Written and produced
by Kouichi Moriuchi

With Hirotaka Shirotsubaki’s combination of soothing guitar drones and ethereal harmonies we experience a sense of warmth and comfort. Listening closely to each part of Shirotsubaki’s compositions as they unfold feels like slowly drifting into a state of meditation. Now it’s up to us: do we pay attention to the rise of each sensation that our body and mind are subjected to or do we get lost in our thoughts, forgetting the world around us...
