A new beautiful collaborative project by Sweden's Tape and Japan's Minamo

A WEAVE OF MICRO FEY POP & SUNDAY MORNING AUTUMN EMPIRES - This record mark the special friendship between these two groups, one from Sweden (Tape) and one from Japan (Minamo). It all started with an invitation in 2002 for Tape to perform in Japan at a night hosted by Cubic Music, the label that Minamo curate. The tour happened the following year and the contact has since then been ongoing between these kindred spirits. Keiichi has been in Sweden with his soloproject Fourcolor, and last year, sparked from an idea by Japanese label HEADZ, Tape and Minamo performed together in Tokyo as a septet and went into the studio shortly after to record what became this enchanting piece of music, "Bird of a feather". The result is a fascinating real collaborative effort, where all seven musicians has put their individual mark on it. Two quite distinct group sounds meet and a third, new one, is created.
