On Thursday night I went to Nine Hours North, a gig featuring acts from Japan. The first act was a lady going by the name of cokiyu. She was being supported in her act by a drummer who was phenomenal. He actually played with both acts, and really elevated the night, but I don't remember what his name is. I particularly liked the first song, and decided I would buy the CD, hoping that the drummer was part of the recording. Unfortunately he wasn't, but it's still quite a nice CD, that kind of dreamy Japanese electronica, synths and hushed breathy singing over unobtrusive beats, It's quite nice but has a tendency to fade to the background if you're doing something else.
