WEWANTSOUNDS, they cry! Well now you’ve got them. Happy? Like every third record that has come out in 2018 this album is a reissue of an album that was made in Japan in the 1980s (1981, to be precise). Like all of those reissues, it’s pretty good. Akiko Yano was married to Ryuichi Sakamoto at the time Tadaima came out, meaning that Sakamoto could produce the record and also rope in his Yellow Magic Orchestra buddies Haruomi Hosono and Yukihiro Takahashi to play on this thing. Unsurprisingly the resulting record is full of deftly assembled synth-pop and City-pop tunes. This release is the first time that the record has been available outside of Japan.
