A vibraphone is a large percussion instrument, similar in appearance to a glockenspiel. Don't worry, we didn't know that either. That is, until earlier today, while listening to Masayoshi Fujita.
Fujita's a Berlin-based Japanese vibraphonist whose soft streaming sounds easily reveal why the instrument's been nicknamed "the vibes." In this track, he flexes his muscles as a multi-instrumentalist, weaving weary winds that recall World's End Girlfriend. Listening to it feels like the endless days of summer. Cue nostalgic cinema montage, then slowly fade out.
These vibes will be a part of Apologues, Fujita’s upcoming LP to be released September 11. He's just been signed to Erased Tapes, previously having worked under the name El Fog. Pre-orders and more info via the Erased Tapes website.
