about the artist:
High Wolf makes music like no one else on the planet. He claims to be from the Amazon and all his activities are shrouded in mystery. Sometimes he is just one man, other times High Wolf is a band. In either case he conjours mystic tropical clouds of repetition and build that, while complex, are never hard to listen to.
Topping Bottoms are a loose liberated squad of itinerant Tokyo drifters that traffic in a billowing, burned out brand of post-millenial psych-loitering that feels like someone slow-motion shattering a lava lamp over yr skull and letting the fluorescent slime drip-drop into yr eyes. (from nff)
about the book:
One month of travelling, partying, smoking, talking, jamming...Many improvisations, sometimes recorded, sometimes not. Music featured on this tape is from three different sessions. One "sunburned hand of the man" like jam on a full night of party, live sessions and crazy dj-ing in a mountain cottage. Maybe 10 people are playing on this. The two other sessions are more minimalist and are outdoor sessions with 3 or 4 guys playing. One on the holy Fuji San mountain, on a very foggy afternoon after an exhausting night. Unforgettable.The other one along the river in old Kyoto city. We enjoyed. We were alive. This is the music of friends boundings.
