L- Holy Letters (2004)

Hiroyuki Usui, half of August Born, did a hard to find solo side project in the 80s and 90s where he went by merely a lone letter, L. Holy Letters was the sole album to come forth from his labors, but was subsequently coveted by listeners and re-released. The music is psychedelic and in possession of a spacey mood. Most of the lyrics feel like they're read rather than sung by Usui, and every last one is in his native Japanese. However, at points there is drawn out, quietly audible singing to be heard. The two largest stand-out tracks on the epics "Holy Letter" and "Troll" in which if you're not careful you can lose track of several minutes when hearing. The instruments vary and and are numberous throughout, but I'll keep this post shorter, just take my word for it that you'll find this most likable.

Might need to retag the album title.
