Lab Overview

What a time to be alive. We are truly living in the golden age of reissues, as this obscure ambient masterpiece from unsung genius Hiroshi Yoshimura is treated its first ever vinyl pressing. Originally released in 1983 on a small run cassette, Pier & Loft was crafted by Yoshimura to soundtrack a Seibu department store exhibition showcasing overseas (i.e. New York) fashion. Yoshimura's work always has a calming quality, something you might not expect for a fashion show. The synth work here is remarkably spacious and entrancing, relying on soft melodies and patient repetition to soothe the listener's ears. It is this special quality that make Yoshimura's work incredibly sought after for lovers of ambient and minimal music. Fans of Midori Takada, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Brian Eno, Gigi Masin, etc. should definitely check. This official reissue from 17853 Records includes a 11x11" printed insert with Yoshimura's original liner notes translated in English and Japanese. Recommended.

  • 11x11" double sided insert with notes in Japanese and English
