Description

FTS gets it right once again! Composed, arranged, and produced by Japanese artist June Chikuma, Les Archives is a whooping gonzo of synthesizers, samplers, drum machines, and a mysterious string quartet, as vibrant now as it was when released on Toru Hatano’s Picture Label as Divertimento in 1986.

Following the original album’s sequence, “Broadcast Profanity Delay” bursts onto Les Archives’ first scene full of buoyant energy and fluttering atmospheric pressure. The composition was conceived by Chikuma for a make-believe marimba ensemble, and in this shapeshifting form, takes on its own mutant life.
