Junya Nakano (Guest rec from Mac DeMarco)
Today we have a guest recommendation from Mac DeMarco, a Canadian singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, whose new album One Wayne G is out now.
Hello Mac DeMarco here,
I'd like to recommend Junya Nakano, specifically his albums Unreleased Tracks volume 1 & 2. Also any of his contributions to the Final Fantasy X video game OST released around the same time.
Something about his sense for melody and harmony really grabs me, and it has since I first was introduced to his music through the Final Fantasy games when I was a kid.
I'm also obsessed with the fidelity of these recordings, and the sounds he uses. I'm sure there's gotta be a big old workstation keyboard out there somewhere that has a bunch of them on it, someday I'll figure it out.
I hope you enjoy.
