Michiru Aoyama – ‘Brilliant Days’ [Mirae Arts]

Japanese ambient music-maker Michiru Aoyama comes from the idyllic town of Kamakura, outside Tokyo.  He’s been releasing music for over a decade, getting props from Ryuichi Sakamoto and contributing to many noteworthy labels’ catalogues along the way.

His latest album, Brilliant Days, is the sophomore vinyl release for young California label Mirae Arts.  Over two stunning (and lengthy) tracks, Aoyama weaves together vaporous clouds of ambient guitar and bright, ethereal electronic noise.  Save this for one of your “brilliant days,” one of those days that transcends the stress, routine, and errands, the hurried turning of minutes into hours, and lets you simply live for a change.
