廃盤作品のストックを発見!!60年代より今尚精力的な演奏活動を続けるブリティッシュ・フォーク/ブルースの重鎮ギタリストMike Cooper。本作は氏の音源を数多く手掛けるオーストラリアRoom40が2015年にリリースした名盤[Fratello Mare]。東南アジアとカリブ海の島々で採集した環境音、埃っぽい土着リズム、そして程よく実験的で心地が良いラップスチール演奏にて作り上げた、まさにこの人物らしい不思議なエキゾワールド。お見逃しなく。









Fratello Mare, a reference to Folco Quilici’s classic film of the same name, is the latest tropical opus from UK born, Italian based musician Mike Cooper.

It’s Cooper’s continuing ode to the Pacific, its people and the traditions that have flowed from that part of the world into seemingly endless iterations within contemporary culture. Recorded across 2014, the album dovetails neatly with his other Room40 editions White Shadows In The South Seas and the post-everything classic Rayon Hula. It expands his combining of highly personal lap steel playing, with exotic music and percussion alongside field recordings made on islands across South East Asia and the Caribbean whilst on residencies and other travels.

At the record’s heart is a yearning these distant islands that dot the vast oceans. A love letter of sorts, a poetic and dreamlike wandering, that sonically traverses the ever-changing edge of land and sea and Cooper's musical imagination.
