Description

27-track strong  homemade private epic  by Japanese couple Ippei Matsui and Aki Tsuyuko;  soothing, calming, introvert music - "centred around Aki’s minimalistic organ and piano pieces, subtly processed electronics and Ippei’s introspective moments of guitar feedback, heavily immersed within the surroundings of their natural habitat tucked safely away from the fast pace of the city"

Huge tip!

Natsu No Zenbu (All Of Summer) originally appeared CDr in 2008 and was given to close friends, guests at their wedding, a few stores in Japan and even trickled over to the All Night Flight site way before the shop was a thing.  This gatefold 2LP comes remastered by Miles Whittaker (Demdike Stare) and manufactured by Pallas, including original artwork insert made by Ippei, riso-printed by John Powell-Jones. 

"Longgg time in the works second release on the shop’s humble in-house label finally birthed into existence via Japanese couple Ippei Matsui and Aki Tsuyuko with their 27-track strong, homemade private epic ‘Natsu No Zenbu’.  A profound and intensely intimate collection of songs written at home throughout the summer of 2008, spurred-on after a move to an old-styled Japanese house in the countryside,  as Aki explains.. ‘We found that an old Japanese house with 13 rooms was being rented at a really cheap price, around 40 minutes from Nagoya, just around the border between Gifu and Aichi.  We decided to move there right away’.  Enjoying the freedom and secluded atmosphere of their new surroundings, they naturally began recording in their new space, day-by-day becoming more in-sync with the environment and making music to suit the pace of daily life.  The collection is centred around Aki’s minimalistic organ and piano pieces, subtly processed electronics and Ippei’s introspective moments of guitar feedback, heavily immersed within the surroundings of their natural habitat tucked safely away from the fast pace of the city.

There’s a distinct homey atmosphere, laced heavy with nostalgia. A train passes by, insects croaking in the distance and the sound of rain falling outside.  At times it feels as though you could be intruding on their privacy just by listening in, although we’re offered an alternative, simpler view of the world by two musicians creating natural music for themselves.  Aki’s simplistic, dreamlike organ play works in perfect harmony with Ippei’s gently strummed guitar work, conjuring other-worldly atmospheres entrenched in a sense of child-like innocence.  It genuinely feels as if you could have been hearing this music all along, although you can’t be sure with the sounds and languages equally familiar and inviting as they are foreign".  - All night Flight
