First & Last: Japanese Private Press, Vol. 12

Welcome to the twelfth installment of First & Last, a series of mixes providing a glimpse into the world of Japanese private press, or 自主盤, pronounced “jishuban”, which loosely translates to “independent board.”

This latest medley unfolds like a muted sonnet, a poignant exploration of singer-songwriter purity that captures the essence of musical solitude. As autumn fades into the quiet embrace of winter, immerse yourself in the hushed tones of acoustic introspection, where each note invokes the stillness of the changing seasons. | t craft
