Distant Sounds of Summer

Greedbag Youtube Bandcamp

Susumu Yokota collaboration with avant-rock pioneers Rothko and singer Caroline Ross. A mixture of sublime vocal tones with loping beats, resonant bass and wide open spaces. Sometimes the deep guitar tones sound like a deep sea Ry Cooder soundtrack, whilst the pure and fragile tones of the voice suggest an elegiac English folk sensibility. At all times Yokota’s masterful production coheres the music into a tangible whole that makes one feel completely enveloped in a wonderful world of sound.
