Propulsive rhythms from early drum machines, whirring electronics and dreamlike vocals make for a jaw-dropping late-career masterpiece from legendary Japanese musician Phew, recorded solo at Phew�s home in Tokyo.
.
Phew�s career began in the late 1970s as lead singer of Osaka punk group Aunt Sally (whose only full-length was released by Vanity Records in 1979). Ryuichi Sakamoto produced her first solo release in 1980, a two-song single, and in 1981 Pass Records released her debut album, a bonafide classic recorded with original Can members Holger Czukay and Jaki Liebezeit at Conny Plank�s studio in Germany. She�s forged a singular path over the past thirty-plus years, collaborating with folks from DAF, Einst�rzende Neubauten, Boredoms, Anton Fier, Bill Laswell and more. It�s borderline sacrilegious to compare an artist as unique as Phew with anyone else, but for those unfamiliar with her work, �Light Sleep� might be described as a more animated Nico singing (in Japanese) for early Suicide. Prepare to be floored.
