This digital release is a "Deluxe Edition" which includes “version 1.0" of the tracks which were not included in the physical releases (LP/CD).
The additional tracks "version 1.0" and "version 1.0 reverse” are bustle sounds of the city with additional electronics but without the instruments and vocals.
This is the complete "formula”.

Is this a reflection of the world determined by some formula? Or a nebulous report, a product of complex entanglement between apathy and anonymous malice?



After the break-up of legendary psychedelic rock band "White Heaven” and "The Stars”, You Ishihara as of late has been active as “You Ishihara with Friends". For Ishihara, known as the sound producer for "Yura Yura Teikoku”, “Boris” and "Ogre You Asshole", this will be his first solo album in 23 years.

The music and song seem distant, in the background amidst the bustle of the city, neither ambient nor avantgarde. But nothing mellow either. Music that is sensual, never before captured, a conceptual work depicting the detachment between the music (Ishihara) and the World.

Ishihara is supported by Michio Kurihara who has been with Ishihara throughout White Heaven and The Stars, along with Tomohiro Kitada and Tatsuhisa Yamamoto, and Soichiro Nakamura, another alumni of White Heaven, who also engineers the record.

Artwork concept by You Ishihara and realized by Shintaro Sakamoto.
