Artist: PAINTING PETALS ON PLANET GHOST
Title: Haru No Omoi
Format: CD
Label: PSF
Country: Japan
Price: $21.00
Haru No Omoi is the third full length release from Painting Petals On Planet Ghost, the project of My Cat Is An Aliens Maurizio and Roberto Opalio featuring Ramona Ponzini (Black Magic Disco, Praxinoscope) on vocals. The MCIAA duo provide expertly restrained accompaniment with guitar, keyboard, and percussion of the spacious gong/cymbal/bell variety to create a minimalist realm for Ponzinis Japanese singing and spoken word that is all together captivating. This is an album of sparse, hypnotic folk and subtle drone, but it inhabits a galaxy containing a warmth and richness in detail quite unlike anything else the Opalios have laid their hands on. Track two, Sakura No Hana No Oto Ga Kikoeru, is a variation (or maybe the same exact version?) of the same song featured on the bands stunning 2005 self-titled debut release on Time-Lag. Housed in a heavy mini-gatefold sleeve. "Every track recorded in a different mystic location of the Western Alps, Piedmont, Italy between winter 2004, early fall 2006 and January 2009." - PSF.

"Digital version of the out-of-print LP. Debut recording from Italys Opalio brothers (My Cat Is An Alien) and Ramona Ponzini. An esoteric and mesmerizing trip through space, minimalism and emotion. Each track recorded at a different mystical location in the western Alps, and centered around Ramonas beautiful vocals, all of which are sung in traditional Japanese. Maurizio & Roberto add sparse accompaniment by means of toy piano, alien keyboard tones, antique accordion, percussion, tape effects, and some particularly evocative acoustic guitar. The whole thing comes off alternately as deeply meditative or chillingly haunted, depending on your attention & mood. Silence, space & ritual are hugely important here, with notes & words hovering frozen in time. While the My Cat Is An Alien moniker might leave some folks scratching their heads, here the Painting Petals on Planet Ghost name nails it: fragile, beautiful, cosmically isolationist, and totally spooked. Lushly packaged in a mini version of the original LP packaging, with letterpress printed tri-fold cover. Printed with copper ink on exquisite & massively thick handmade ivory art paper, each sheet cast one at a time & air dried." - Time-Lag.
