Alex From Tokyo shares four of his 2016 favorites before he plays an extended 6-hour set at Le Bain on Saturday, January 14th.
BEST LISTENING ALBUM
Bitchin Bajas and Bonnie Prince Billy's
Epic Jammers and Fortunate Little Ditties
"This really moving, organic, spiritual, atmospheric, and melancholic folk-trance-cosmic jam session album features the mercurial voice of Will Oldham, aka Bonnie Prince Billy, and the Chicago experimental trio Bitchin Bajas."
Dionisio Maio's "Dia Ja Manche"
"A beautiful, uplifting afro-synth boogie song from Cabo Verde I raved about the most and I played a lot this year. Released in 1984, it got reissued this year by Analog Africa."
"Definitely the NYC fanzine of Paul Raffaele, Love Injection!"
"Hiking the 1000-year-old sacred Kumano Kodo Buddhist pilgrimage mountain trails in Wakayama, Japan was definitely one of my highlights of 2016!"
