about

Sakura was originally released on Longstone's own Wavetable label as a response to the 2011 tsunami in northern Japan. The money raised from the original release went to local relief charities and the limited edition physical release sold out quickly. After 10 years we have decided to make this release available on Bandcamp (there are no charitable associations this time). Back in 2011 Sakura secured a very welcome Stuart Lee review in The Sunday Times Culture magazine. The review gives a good idea of the album, so here it is: "Cheltenham's durable electronics duo enlist various local experimental luminaries in a suite of fizzy noise, with all profits to Japanese tsunami relief charities. Clattering blips arrive, from Dusseldorf via Detroit, and bleed into becalmed woodwinds. Cautious melodic progressions emerge from shudderingly undanceable beats. Ice sheets of high-end drones slide into the sea. Available digitally, Sakura also comes as a limited-edition CD in a large-card wallet, with numbered inserts and prints. My copy included a hand-made origami frog, raising the bar for other musicians' releases considerably."SL
