The Holy Grail of pricey Discogs purchases, forever in wishlists around the world, is finally getting a well deserved reissue by none other than Light In The Attic. I'm talking about Haruomi Hosono's Cochin Moon.
I don't have words to express just how important this record is, it's a cornerstone for electronic music in general, but it's also a high point in a prolific and accomplished career that easily parallels that of his band mate, Ryuichi Sakamoto. To be completely honest, the main reason Hosono is not as well know is this specifically: his records are super hard to find outside of the land of the rising sun.
So head over to Light In The Attic to pre-order the fuck out of this baby:
