FUUBUTSUSHI / SETSUBUN / YAMAWARAU / NATSUKASHII
A compendium physical/digital release that collects all four seasons/four albums by Fuubutsushi recorded 2020-2021. The physical edition includes 4 CDs in a fold-out digipak housed with a full color booklet in an O-card sleeve.
Combining many genres and elements, Fuubutsushi's catalog is one marked by playful and trusting exploration between four musicians; though each loosely assumes a role -- Jusell on violin, Prymek on guitars, Sage on percussion/keys, Shiroishi on woodwinds -- the group has, in their hallmark year of long-distance collaboration, established a free-form vocabulary. Borrowing idioms from ECM, cool jazz, ambient music, minimalism, city pop, post rock, folk, and Americana, this music thoughtfully roams across landscapes like a wandering cloud. At times it falls into valleys, at times in soars far above the surface, it falls and collects in puddles and lakes, it thaws and runs like rivers, it collects in snow banks and freezes solid.
After receiving critical acclaim and high demand, all four albums are now available in this handsome edition and download.
