Hedge Hop / Nostargiology feat. Captain Earwax

泉川貴広のLo-Fi Hip-Hopプロジェクト”Hedge Hop”第7作目はオーストラリアの多才アーティスト、キャプテン・イヤーワックスことダニエル・オートゥールとのコラボレーション!


In this Takahiro Izumikawa’s 7th “Hedge Hop” collaboration, the Australian multi-disciplinary artist Daniel O’Toole, Captain Earwax is appeared!

With his trippy, ambient & psychedelic samples and a bit of idled broken beats, like as a well know painter in Australia, Captain Earwax keeps the tune rolling as a sweetly awkward music box sounding!
Takahiro Izumikawa catches Captain Earwax’s warm vibe and responds with nostalgic piano and Fender Rhodes phrases.
There are properly simple but also condensed jazzy feelings which Takahiro has cultivated and nurtured in his career.
Those two talents got best match in this Lo-Fi tune!

Yui Ogura’s jacket design is as highly expected as well!
