Rinji Fukuoka / Michel Henritzi / Luca Massolin ‎– Weather Report LP

This is exceptional. Serving as an elegy for the Fukushima earthquake, tsunami and nuclear accident, what we have is an amalgam of improvisational sounds to stand for the swirling tumult of environmental disaster. Violin funeral dirges, toxic waste electronics, and psychedelic guitar lines eventually crash and melt into the cathartic noise of the Earth's inevitable end. Luca Massolin on bass, guitar and electronics, Rinji Fukuoka on violin and Michel Henritzi on lapsteel guitar. 2014 lp on Backwards
