Slowburn with Makoto Kawabata and Mitsuru Tabata "S/T" 7"
Apartment Records (2004) - aparec022
Makoto Kawabata, Mitsuru Tabata and the two fellows at the Slowburn camp have cultivated a little musical piece over a couple of years. Because of the geographical distance, the project has evolved by sending tapes to each other.
Kawabata and Tabata are well known for their music, both solo and with bands. Kawabata as leader for the Acid Mothers Temple collective, Tabata as a member of Marble Sheep, Leningrad Blues Machine and Zeni Geva guitarist.
Slowburn, based in Norway, has released a nice little stock of singles, a 10" and an LP, as well as contributing to a lot of compilations. The two slowburners Per Gisle Galåen and Fredrik Ness Sevendal use whatever instruments they find and create sometimes beautiful and sometimes odd pop music. They can also be found in bands such as DEL, Kelner, Marmont and Soft Rebels. And they co-run Apartment Records, the label responsible for this limited edition 7" release.
