Cult electronic new wave contemporary experimental album from 1983 by Japanese band Mariah. This fifth album Utakata No Hibi is just the perfect fusion of word music mixing eastern sounds with delicate mysterious melodies. Considered as the best works of composer and bandleader Yasuaki Shimizu’s early-80s work, often compared to his contemporaries Ryuichi Sakamoto and Haruomi Hosono, as well as experimental new wavers Flying Lizards/David Cunningham, all of whom Shimizu has worked with. Recognized in Japan for the hit, “Shinzo No Tobira,” the entire record is a masterful studio production of Japanese folk and pop idioms filtered through a chamber disco, new wave, synth production. Essential. Cover is EX very close to NM with a few very light creases.
Original pressing x2 12" set on Better Days. inc insert and OBI.
