Rain Tree Crow – Rain Tree Crow

Here we have the members of Japan. I’ll let Wiki tell you the story:

The name Rain Tree Crow was chosen to mark a break from Japan’s past, with the intention of creating a new long-term project. As the music turned out to be less commercial than originally envisioned, all members of the band aside from [David] Sylvian became amenable to the idea of retaining the Japan moniker, in order to gain maximum exposure. However, Sylvian levered increasing artistic and production control over the project, to the point where the recording developed from a band effort into what was essentially another Sylvian solo project, leaving the other members as mere session players for the front man.

I bought this on a whim, and I’m glad I did! What we have here is group improvisations, with (according to Wiki) no prehearsals. When I hear it with this in mind, I am blown away by the quality.

These are fascinating songs, with strong instrumental lines and cool vocals. It’s got elements of jazz, rock, 80s synth… These are very meditative beats, great for turning the lights low and letting your mind wander… It’s etheral, and quite moving.
