夏の陽

ACO

 

one of my favorite artists is a japanese girl named aco.

in 2000 i was in japan trying to do my international thing and aco let me tour with her a bit to learn the ropes.

at the time i was a bit overwhelmed with everything to really take in her music.

i liked it, but it was a few years after the dust settled that i really got into her.

and even though i don’t understand a word she is saying,

i adore her craft.

i  know she produces most of her work and writes the lyrics.

of her twenty plus albums my favorite is absolute ego.

the remix album, the other side of absolute ego, was being released during my time there.

i remember seeing her during rehearsals going over these songs with her band.

she was so serious.

so into her shit.

i loved it.

through the years i still listen to that album.

aside from the sentimental value it holds for me, 

it’s a great piece of work.

here is a video from one of the songs.
