The album “Ninth Elegy” of Tsuki No Wa leaded by a vocalist Fuminosuke has just arrived. This album was produced by Amephone who is included in Gasbook 5 and I can feel the sound of urban night. It’s absolutely different from what we can see on magazines and television. I think the real urban thing goes well with night.

Fuminosuke’s singing voice echoes well for us got drunk in a wintry concrete room. It’s different from the best house music, nor jazz. It might be because the sound was born in an extremely local town Asagaya in Tokyo. Just like it makes us so happy.

They had been doing live performances at ‘Rojak’, a restaurant of interior shop IDEE or Bar Aoyama, but right now they don’t play at any specific places. I hope to see their live performances at a wonderful place in the future.
