n5MD signs ent

December 18, 2009

Californian indie label n5MD will release ent’s debut album Welcome Stranger in the US/worldwide in 2010.  The US release will contain all 7 songs from the Japanese release plus 3 remixes.  Ent is the solo project of Atsushi Horie, frontman of STRAIGHTENER and FULLARMOR.

Welcome Stranger was originally released in February 2009 by Preco Records.  The album, 3 years in the making, was a more personal and sentimental journey for Atsushi.  Heavily influenced by electronics and post-rock, Atsushi combined these elements with pop sensibilities from his other projects.

  1. I think this song shines with the creativity straightener has been lacking lately since they got a guitarist. Definitely sounds like “electronics and post-rock.” I’m not so sure about “pop-sensibility.”
    The video really kills the song, though.
