Gerpfast Records Release Cassettes for Japanese Multi-Instrumentalist Yuko Araki

After releasing her first album ‘I’ and second album ‘II’ last year, Yuko Araki will release her debut live recording album around 2019-2020. 2 tracks taken live from at Kagurane (24/3) and Cafe Oto (28/10). It’s a journey of dark fantasy listen to all works of Yuko. The joy of terror and devastation packed in around 50 minutes ready to shatter your mind with a great massive drone sound.

The album will be released on very limited cassette via Gerpfast Records.

The second track (or SIDE B – Live from Cafe Oto) can only be purchased and streamed on the Ochiai Soup Bandcamp page to support the venue Cafe Oto.

Multi-instrumentalist/composer based in Tokyo, Yuko Araki started playing piano when she was a small child and in her teenage years was inspired by hardcore and metal music, but she soon became really eclectic and took on a diverse range of projects, including drummer of the oriental/tribal dream psych band Kuunatic and founding members of the Neo classical noise duo Concierto de la Familia and her solo project: harsh noise drones layered by analog synthesisers, cymbals and samples of Japanese traditional instruments creating abstract rhythms and dissonant harmonies that sound like a noise orchestra. is an underground Asian music news website created for the sole purpose of supporting our own world.
