bridge: pulp cathedral


























In basketball, there's the expression, "nothing but net," but we don't know what the corresponding expression would be in Japanese, nor would we know how to pronounce it if we did know it. Let's just say, "nothing but flute," which would convey the aura of this album, but then our words would be inaccurate since there are kettle drums and vocals involved on most of the tracks.

Here are some of the most beautiful lyrics currently on the market:


The deer with its doe eye, the tree branch
Lingered until a squirrel, morning mist uplifted
Nut of a trout stream, mountain melting
Moss bed in bloom, ice wine of forgotten


While the back cover, not pictured here, is a beautiful portrait of snow monkeys, the front cover concerns an imaginary wooden bridge, and the wooden bridge itself is a tribute to the Japanese soldiers who successfully invaded Alaska during World War II:

Salmon and bear and cold, whose idea was it
To conquer the snow, Alaska is cold

Let me conclude by saying, if you love flute, this album is for you.
