REISSUE OF ASPIDISTRAFLY “A LITTLE FABLE” – SEPTEMBER RELEASE IN JAPAN

Originally released in 2011, ASPIDISTRAFLY 2nd album A LITTLE FABLE will be reissued in Japan in September in a newly packaged CD edition with a special inclusion of 2 bonus download tracks.

Recorded in the autumn/winter of 2010, Singapore-based April Lee and Ricks Ang of ASPIDISTRAFLY (also founders of Kitchen. Label) embarked on the production of their second album A LITTLE FABLE in Japan in collaboration with several artists. Fascinated by the patina of time and themes of folklore, A LITTLE FABLE narrates a surrealist procession of tales, twelve compositions simmering one into the other lyrically and picturesquely. This album sees the duo returning to a warm, organic palette of closely-whispered vocals, fingerpicked guitar, string arrangements and their trademark texture-focused arrangements. Featuring guest collaborators Kyo Ichinose, Seigen Tokuzawa, haruka nakamura, Junya Yanagidaira (ironomi), honagayoko, Akira Kosemura, Janis Crunch and more.

Please stay tuned to this page for more information coming soon.
