We decided to make a limted edition of Emilia Alvarez EP “Move On” available on CD for all of us retro minded old school hipsters with a passion for plastic. It comes in a cardboard sleeve, though.

To celebrate this we decided to have a little CD giveaway, where 10 lucky people will receive a signed CD. All you have to do is send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, delivery adress and emailadress. We will draw the winners on sunday, dec 11th.
Please note that you will have to agree to receive a newsletter once in a while…

a-kutikku – Onomatopoetic Songs
Japanese electro pop with Eiko Furukawa and Per Tidstrand. Japanese traditional songs and children’s songs with a touch of Scandinavia.
Eiko Furukawa is a singer in a variety of musical styles. In this case, Eiko is the vocalist in a-kutikku where rather childish songs, many of which also more or less traditional japanese songs, are performed in a quite modern way. Most of the music is based on a club sound and atmosphere, where we tried to capture the playfulness of the songs, or the stories the songs are about. The music is meant to be able to be performed live on stage, with recorded backing tracks and live vocals, as well as one or more live instruments. We have done this successfully a couple of times in Sweden. Eiko is at the moment living in Sweden where this collaboration started.
The musical arrangements are made by Per Tidstrand, a swedish musician and music producer. Per is originally a classical cellist but is working in most of the musical genres, in both professions.
