This album hit my Spotify by accident. What I was listening to ended, and the weird/unknowable algorithm chose this for me next. I have that feature turned off on every device where I use Spotify, all except one. Turned out pretty awesome, because Yamantaka//Sonic Titan became a favorite immediately. The albums have amazing covers, with memorable song titles, lyrics, and sonic universes to explore.

The Rhythm of Writing

There's a scene in Lost In Translation that stuck with me - more than one, actually - and I'd revisit it on the DVD, or even on Youtube. There are several shots of arcades, but the one where Scarlett Johansson is alone has so much fantastic footage of the games and the people playing them. The soundtrack is perfect in that scene, all the games jangling and ringing, or even singing to you. It made me want more of Japan. After a lot of failed searches, I found Rambalac. This was the perfect account, and I dove in to the back catalogue, the Yanaka at night being one of my favorites. There are videos for every mood you have. I recommend just popping one on in the background while you read, or relax. It's a great way to get a peek at a city which may be far away, something all of us can use, in my opinion. Rambalac has a Patreon, head over there if you'd like to give some money toward the production of these great videos.
