Susumu Yokota
Magic Thread

By Dave Stelfox

For those who may be more familiar with Susumu Yokota's work on Sublime, Magic Thread will be a valuable insight to the many musical facets of this Japanese genius. First released as a limited run of 500 copies on the artist's own Skintone imprint, Magic Thread ebbs and flows with fragile introspection, carried along on winds of spellbinding harmony that eerily transport the listener into Yokata's idosyncratic conceptual world as tracks such as Unravel, Fiber, Stitch and Blend warp into a fabric of luxuriant simplicity. Music which will possess both your heart and mind.
