RELEASE DESCRIPTION

Mioko Yamaguchi's original albums "Tokisakashima," "FLOMA," and "FAIRYTHM" are now available in analog form!

Released as their first new full album since the internationally acclaimed 1983 masterpiece "Tsukihime"!

This work, positioned as a sequel to Tsukihime, advances the unique worldview of Tsukihime with the concept of "devil fantasy" while retaining the essence of Japanesque, Oriental, and Japanese-Western fusion. A magnificent piece.

A group of songs that fully demonstrate their updated melody sense and allow you to enjoy the charm of beautiful synth sounds.

Teaming up again with Hideki Matsutake, who participated in "Yume Hikou," "NIRVANA," and "Tsukihime," the "synth-pop genius" will weave a new story.

"Seirei no Mori" has an intro sound reminiscent of a deep night forest, a tense melody that develops deeper and stronger from the chorus, and an excellent mix of East and West that foretells the beginning of a "mysterious fantasy".

The title song "Tokisakashima," which has the theme of "a journey back in time," perfectly expresses a mysterious worldview that feels like falling into water or diving to the bottom of the world, and the well-thought-out sound makeup creates beautiful ambient pop that shines.

"Koi wa Karageshi Natsu no" is the final part of the "Japanese style trilogy," following "Omatsuri" from the 1980 work "Yume Hikou" and "Satemo Appare Yumezakura" from the 1983 work "Tsukihime". "Yoi / Ton-Ten-Syan" is a Japanesque pop song that gives a vivid impression with the sound of the words "Ton-Ten-Syan" and the "shamisen x synth" sound.

"Ikoku Chouchou" is one of the most danceable songs on the album, packaging multinational elements, including ska and oriental, with an exquisite sense of balance.

"Elf no Wa" depicts the "dance of fairies," and the euphoria of minimal music and floating voice effects transport the listener to a different world.

"Ayakashi no Hana," which strongly embodies the album's keyword "you," is an oriental ballad featuring transparent synths and the melancholy beauty of the violin.

"Shiawase no Tsubu," a continuation of the title song "Tsukihime" from "Tsukihime," uses dazzling pop particles and sparkling songs to create the finest techno-synth pop.

This work, which began with "Seirei no Mori," is sublimated into a single story by the ending track "Seirei no Mori Spirit Forest Prologue," which serves as a companion (Sakashima), and announces the "prologue" of a new story.
