Koharu Kisaragi & Ryuichi Sakamoto - Neo-Plant

Freshly minted UK label Lag Records are reissuing Koharu Kisaragi and Ryuichi Sakamoto 1986 single Neo Plant.  The first and only single taken from Kisaragi’s Tokai No Seikatsu LP, and cowritten and produced by the legendary Sakamoto.

The three track release features Neo-Plant a sample heavy, avant-garde, synth pop piece influenced by early hip hop and dancehall rhythms. On the B-side you’ll find Traumerei a minimalist piece of Japanese folk with Koharu’s warm voice swooning over melodic woodwind, finally Tail is a short but sweet new age instrumental.

The release is limited to 500 copies and the label are also giving anyone who pre-orders the 12″ at www.lagrecords.com/store the chance to win one of five test pressings that have been signed by Ryuichi Sakamoto!

What you waiting for?          

 

Neo Plant is due for release on October 30th
