The late Japanese musician and composer Hiroshi Yoshimura’s debut album Music For Nine Post Cards will be reissued by Empire Of Signs a new label from Visible Cloaks‘ Spencer Doran and Maxwell August Croy of Root Strata called Empire of Signs.

The 1982 album recorded at home on a minimal set up of keyboard and Fender Rhodes still sounds unique and innovative some 35 years on. Next month Japanese digger Chee Shimizu’s 17853 Records imprint will also release Yoshimura’s second album Pier & Loft on vinyl for the first time.

The first vinyl and digital reissue include both the original LP jacket and liner notes printed in English and Japanese, plus new notes from his widow Yoko Yoshimura, and Doran and Croy.
