the telephones frontman goes solo

January 5, 2011

One of the things I missed out on when I skipped Stuff To Look forward To last month was Akira Ishige’s solo debut.  “Flowers On The Wall” shows a more delicate side to Ishige.  Gone are the high pitch screams and the disco synths replaced with pianowork.  It reminds me a lot of Atsushi Horie of STRAIGHTENER’s side-project (coincidentally they both worked on film scores earlier this year).

from my bedroom came out December 15.  More samples can be heard at ototoy.
