Click Clack on the track, FULLMEMBER is back with quite the “Experience.”
It’s like they are rapping over experimental space quacks and wood click clacks and it should make you fearful of the “Boogie Man.” “Experience” comes off as completely trippy and would probably be a prerequisite for stoners everywhere.
Fullmember whipped out their album After December on 4.17.2013. Score it at CDJapan.

Talk a walk on the real side with OYSTAR. His minimalist video for “Walk in the real” is ambient rap with just some stock footage of places that are somewhat familiar.
This shit is trippy. And pretty darn good too. If there is anything I like, it’s always different stuff you don’t always hear.
So give OYSTAR’s Nu-Naissance a try. It’s a free download if you want it to be.. or you can offer the man a few bucks.
When you are done, take a walk on the wild side at Wild Vision JP.
Nothing like some headache inducing ambient glitch to start your day. Hello! It’s Nyolfen’s digest for Pulse and it’s a mix of shrill clinks, and static and stuttering fused with hip hop beats. You either like it or ya don’t! A couple of tracks really catch my ear, like “In Forest” and “Just a Drop of the Day.”
Album crashes down on 7.8.2012 at Amazon.jp.
Read about Nyolfen’s older stuff at his outdated myspace page. Get more recent stuff by following him on twitter.
Japan has a fascination with the English alphabet. There are lots of songs about the ABC’s. Bio Tolva create the coolest one I’ve heard with the track “Ordering AZ (Alphabet Song).”
They get the awesome singer Ferri perform guest vocals in an opera fashion-and she lists all the things you can do from A to Z. Pretty cool. Add some guitar plucks, piano and reverse sound effects and you get a weirdly classical ambient track.
Dig deeper into bio tolva’s sound when you check out their new album CHIAROSCURO out 6.6.2012. Amazon.jp is taking preorders.
Check out an umbrella ballerina on the cover of their album over at bio tolva’s official website.
I made the mistake of playing SiMoN’s “Reindeer” while working. This is one minimalistic night-night song. It’s very sleep heavy. The guitar picking, the violins, the radiohead-like whimpers. All of it will make you pass out if you aren’t careful. So please leave a light on for me. I won’t be home til late.
Find “Reindeer” on SiMoN’s new album High Heel slated for 6.6.2012 thru CDJapan.
Simon’s official website reeks of fishes.
Hold your ears. Needle piercing glitch and ambient return with Fugenn & the White Elephants new album Prays. You can listen to a digest of the new album above, which ranges from mystical and magical ambient to surgical precise pricks of pain.

Also follow Fugenn on twitter.
Need a little easy listening ambient music to start your day? Check out Gabby & Lopez’s “Reflection.”
It’s very calming and relaxing. It’s like a musical babbling creek of music. Just don’t fall asleep! Gabby & Lopez have a new album entitled Twilight for 8th Street slated for 4.18.2012. Why don’t you dip your toes in over at CDJapan.

Fragment return with their polygons intact in this hip hopish experimental ambient track “Polygonair.” Computer generated thingies blip on screen and blip off screen before you can blip yourself.
It’s sort of calming and sort of not. That’s Fragment.
Look for their new album Narrow Cosmos 104 released 2.15.2012 at Yesasia or CDJapan.
The debut album from Meme sounds like a digitized Christopher Cross Sailin’ Away to ambient land! Alku Ringo is slated for 2.8.2012 thru Kilk records, and once again Kilk records Killks it!
In the short 2 minutes we get snippets of alt-electronica, piano and light airy vocals that should take you away. Hopefully you’ll get taken over to CDJapan or Yesasia and put your preorder in.
Find bits of Meme on the internet here and there.. like myspace, twitter and Kilk records website.
Woodwind instrumental electronic ambient something-er-other. Yoshinori Takezawa is making beautiful music and will enchant you with the starry night PV for “Estrella.”
