Image: 1595267 Welcome vinyl reissue of this avant-garde masterpiece from Japanese electronic music maestro Haruomi Hosono, founder of the Yellow Magic Orchestra. Solo project 'Philharmony', originally released in 1982 on his own Yen label, captures Hosono at perhaps his most experimental, boundary-pushing and schizophrenic, with the LP veering from wildly abstract beauties like 'Birthday Party' and 'In Limbo' via mutant synth-pop such as 'Funiculi, Funicula' to tight funky dancefloor fillers 'Sportsmen', 'Living Dining Kitchen' and of course big Cosmic favourite 'Platonic'. A mesmerizing wander through the sonic genius of Japan's legendary musical innovator. Essential.
