Videotapemusic expands his Tokyo exotica


Tokyo’s Videotapemusic has a new shimmering summer album out, ‘Souvenir’ – sort of like a super-soft and cozily semi-sampled yet edgy update of Haruomi Hosono’s wonderful exotica between 1973 and 1985. I think this guy started out pretty much alone but has expanded his recording circle of friends – this time it is almost like a session from Hosono’s heyday with a group of really great musicians. There are even steel pans and a steel guitar, horns and Carribean percussion, embedded in the electronics.
