Sure to be overlooked for its elegant subtlety, Cibo Matto-programmer Yuka Honda and Yoshimi P-We (Boredoms, OOIOO, Free Kitten) have created a minor ambient/improv masterpiece in Flower With No Color. Made while traveling and living together in rural Japan, Flower gathers field recordings of birds, temple bells and sounds of their truck with piano, bamboo flutes, trumpets and synthesizers into a something not unlike Alice Coltrane, Sun Ra and Damo Suzuiki wandering Mt. Ikoma on opium. Easily one of the most sublime 45-minute listening sessions I’ve spent in some time.
