Ghost Touch / Plum Rain
- Label: Tru Thoughts
- Cat Number: TRUDD033
These two digital single tracks display a great range of feeling, with a glimpse of dark underbelly in the highly percussive, edgy beat of “Ghost Touch”, whose spookiness is compounded by Anchorsong's fancy for using guitar effects, especially overdrive/distortion, to subvert the sound; and evocative beauty in “Plum Rain”, written in Japan during the rainy season - the rich dynamic and non-dynamic textures are shot through with the piano melody, drenching the listener in the atmosphere of that liquid Japanese afternoon.
Originally from Tokyo, Anchorsong – aka Masaaki Yoshida – moved to London in 2007, via a stint in New York. He has amassed a worldwide following for his hook-laden, idiosyncratic and energetic music, built from multiple layers of live instrumentation and electronic production; his ability to translate this into a thrilling live spectacle further sets him apart.
An addictive listen, these tracksreveal more with each play, fusing diverse influences including rock, hip hop and electronica, with every note – from beats right through to strings - played by accomplished multi-instrumentalist Yoshida himself.
PLEASE NOTE PLUM RAIN WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR FREE AS OF 24TH OCTOBER FOR A LIMITED PERIOD ONLY - CHECK THE TT SITE FOR DETAILS.
