Étiquette : Light In The Attic

Suite logique du vaste travail de réédition de musique Japonaise débuté par Light In The Attic il y a un an avec la fantastique compilation Even A Tree Can Shed Tears: Japanese Folk & Rock 1969-1973. Le légendaire Haruomi Hosono voit 5 de ses disques indispensables enfin réédités et disponibles en Amérique du Nord pour la première fois depuis leur parution il y a plus de 40 ans! Essentiels!!!!
After Happy End???s amicable break up in 1973, Hosono released Hosono House, an intimate slice of Japanese Americana recorded at home with a back-to-basics approach akin to Music from Big Pink or McCartney. While his former band helped pave the way for the rise of ???city pop??? that reflected upon urban themes and city life, Hosono took a 180 degree turn towards the countryside for his highly-regarded first solo album. Located an hour from Tokyo in Sayama, Saitama Prefecture, the actual Hosono House was one of several American-style houses originally built for the families of troops stationed at the nearby Johnson Air Base, active during the post-war occupation years. By the early ???70s this small community had become a hub for creative types looking for a break from Tokyo???s hustle and bustle ??? and cheaper rent. For Hosono, this was as close as he could get to living in America without leaving his home country. With rooms filled to the edges with recording gear, the house became a live-in studio for Hosono and his crack band ??? soon to become known as the in-demand session group Tin Pan Alley. The songs on Hosono House display the breadth of Hosono???s talents, from the hushed acoustic folk of ???Rock-A-Bye My Baby??? and the country twang of ???Boku Wa Chotto??? to the New Orleans funk of ???Fuyu Koe??? and the unexpected breakbeats in ???Bara To Yajuu.??? Lauded by artists such as Jim O???Rourke and Devendra Banhart, Hosono House remains a touchstone of the early phase of Hosono???s career.
