UCHÜ — UCHU + Buddha [2006]

Here's the first two releases from UCHU. That is Kawabata and Hiroshi from Acid Mothers Temple with the addition of female vocals from Ayano. I picked this dreamy piece of work up at the AMT show. The liner notes proclaim "no synthesizer, no sampler, no programming, ...only Guitars!" and thats exactly what you get. Drone out bliss. There is some discrepancy here as the original recording I have of "Buddha" has different track titles as well as one track being completely absent. Though there is a hidden track on this compilation. Enjoy.

Genre: Psych/Drone
Label: Acid Mothers Temple [original releases] / na-mu [re release]
Country: Japan
Bitrate: ripped from CD @ 192k


What the guy has to say about humiliation & its juxtaposition with performance is brilliant. I also love the guitar tone here.
