I recently received Sing Me a Song, a little 4-song disc of wonderful, mellow glitchy electronica from Japanese artist Taro Kawasaki, and I mean little: a limited-edition 3-inch CD with four gentle songs in less than ten minutes. With an emphasis on guitar and glitchy patches, Kawasaki explores a sonic landscape that is soft, supple, and innocent; these four songs are lovely little lullabies, and work well with those who are seeking a trip to the Land of Nod. If you're a fan of the Leaf label, Morr Music, or Windham Hill, even, you'll enjoy this little record. I definitely do look forward to hearing more from this young man.
