Joe Hisaishi

Kissho Tennyo

Released 03/03/18 Label Lag Genre Electronic Cat no. lagrec002

Ltd Translucent Pink LP & Download Code


The second official release from Lag Records, bringing a reissue of a vintage electronic classic from Joe Hisaishi. On Kissho Tennyo we hear Hisaishi unleash synth arpeggios with all the suspense of a giallo horror. His cold minimalist ambience evokes the likes of Terry Riley. Tracks like ‘Blood Feud’ meanwhile lighten the mood, running at car chase speed with the bounce of early YMO. All in all, befittingly beguiling music for the cartoon tale of a modern femme fatale who has the powers of an ancient deity.
