El Fog “Lily”

23 Nov 2012 — Henning Lahmann

Fragile, hushed melodies courtesy of Berlin-based Japanese artist Masayoshi Fujita aka El Fog, whose candid compositions evoke The Caretaker at his most elusive. Played with vibraphone and reluctantly manipulated by means of live sampling, a loop machine, and other electronics, his LP Reverberate Slowly is a collection of enchanting winter lullabies, your perfect companion for extended walks through this neverending November mist. Listen to the delicately crackling nocturne "Lily" below. A highly recommended release.

Originally released on moteer in 2007, Reverberate Slowly has been re-released by Japanese imprint flau, with two extra tracks and a remix by Jan Jelinek. Get it here.
