Japan, 2011, psychedelic rock / experimental rock
Various Artists – 音樂70 (Ongaku 70): Vintage Psychedelia in Japan: An interesting sampling of some exciting psych rock with a generous helping of Japanese folk thrown in, and when it’s blended with that characteristic 70s funk, it’s just perfect. Harry Hosono & Yellow Magic Band’s extremely complex, catchy, and just plain fun percussion is to die for, too! Droning, expressive organs and unfettered, wailing guitars are the order of the day. Even some Indian psychedelic sitar thrown into the mix.
