November's Magnetic Bungalow features a classic of Japanese experimental home recording.
Aioi Usui's 1993 cassette album "Lasered Eye" is full of ideas both unique to Japan and universal. The recordings showcase Usui's thoughtful personality as well as his unusual approaches to song writing.
This tape came with a nice little photocopied booklet that includes lyrics and/or descriptions for all of its songs -- written in both Japanese and English. It also came with a fancy transparent envelope that contained some unusual color photographs.
