Eine Kleine China - Prince Tsushinkogyo (2022)

This year is shaping up to be a huge one for local releases; and this is one that we're REALLY REALLY excited to share with you. We featured Eine Kleine China's first tape a few years ago - somehow we had discovered them via bandcamp, and boy oh boy are we ever glad we did. 

Prince Tsushinkogyo is another dip into electronica on the experimental end of the spectrum - beats, synths, and loops fall into shape and then dissolve into each other in ways that are alternatingly hypnotic and disquieting. We really enjoy the shifts from harmony to tension that Eine Kleine China has mastered - it's the new quiet-loud-quiet. We hear echoes of everything from DJ Shadow to Jay Crocker's Joyfultalk in this. And in case you can't tell, we like it a lot.

If you want a physical copy of this, hope over to Eine Kleine China's bandcamp - this is out on limited edition CD and cassette.
