The latest LP to be given new life by the resurgent interest in Haruomi Hosono is Cochin Moon. Originally released in 1978, this record is notable for coming out only two months before the eponymous debut full-length from Hosono’s Yellow Magic Orchestra group. There is a clear through-line between the two records in their use of synthesizers and air of lopsided charm. However, while Yellow Magic Orchestra tamed their electronics by applying them to pop song structures, Cochin Moon finds Hosono untethered and free to experiment. The resulting album ends up as a mix of minimal synth, Krautrock and Exotica. This Light In The Attic reissue marks the first time that the vinyl of Cochin Moon has been made available outside of Japan.
