Vinyl LP pressing. Seito: In the Beginning, Woman Was the Sun gathers Japanese female artists from various electronic and experimental music fields. Like the Tokyo Flashback series issued by P.S.F. in the early 1990s, this collection recorded between 2017 and 2019 exposes the richness of the contemporary Japanese underground music scene. The title refers to a cult feminist magazine printed in Japan in the 1910s. Featuring: Fuji-Yuki's glommy folk song, Kiki Hitomi's haunted dub tune, Mikado Koko's deep house hit, Miki Yui's electoacoustic performance, Kakushin Nishihara's noisy folk track, Kuunatic's oriental psych blend, and Keiko Higuchi's memorable nine-minute cover of the classic Japanese folk song, ''Okesa Bushi''. All tracks issued for the first time.
