Reblog – on palto flats and wrwtfww’s reissue of midori takada’s seminal through the looking glass

I have loved this record for so long and over the years have visited it on many occasions. It is “a masterpiece failed by its own time”. – like so many that I could name. While other artists are feted and gain all the publicity, there are many who deserve as much accolade and praise – and finally, Midori Takada is getting the recognition she long deserved.

Although it doesn’t quite fit into the electronic field as such, please try and listen, and take in the 40 minutes that demonstrate how often gems are lost due to fashion in music, lack of distribution, knowledge and being in the wrong time and place.

It is sublime.
