Artist Bio:

About Nagisa Ni Te FROM THEIR WEBSITE: In the beginning, Shinji Shibayama performed "hyped up dada-psych" in the early 1980's as part of Idiot O'Clock, and then the more toned-down Hallelujahs. He also founded and still runs Org Records, the label responsible for bringing Eastern psych powers Maher Shalal Hash Baz to the world. With Maher Shalal Hash Baz's help, with the musical contributions of many of their collective friends, and with the assistance of Shibayma's now full-fledged cohort Masako Takeda in all things Nagisa Ni Te, Shibayama recorded and released On The Love Beach , a beautiful, slow and entrancing work pulling equally from American and British rock traditions. Thus was born Nagisa Ni Te, which means "on the beach" in Japanese, a homage of sorts to Neil Young's 1975 masterpiece. Their psych-folk tendencies notwithstanding, Nagisa Ni Te have also done well throughout all of their records to take cues from the avant rock world around them, comfortably implementing the minimalist credo "less is more" throughout their body of work.[Read More]
