Maruo Maruko - Daisan Hankyu No Radio

This is one of a few really solid Japanese albums brought to my attention by Begone Dull Care, a blog curated by an Osaka resident that has been uploading CDRs purchased at local underground shows. Maruo Maruko of Kyoto plays intimate Japanese folk music in the most traditional sense. With the help of accordion, mouth harp, and various toy instruments, each track feels like a story that's been passed down from generation to generation. Keep an eye on Begone Dull Care for more releases you'll probably never come across elsewhere.
