RIYL: Khruangbin / Selda Bağcan / Erkin Koray

Label: Piano Piano Records

This morning, as quick and quiet as Washington crossing the Delaware, Piano Piano Records released Sven Wunder’s sophomore release into the atmosphere. It caught flight for a brief glorious few minutes and was sold out before you even got a cup of coffee down your throat. That’s the bad news. The GOOD news is that the US labels Rappcats and Light in the Attic Records pulled some strings with Piano Piano and increased the press run for the album. By how much? Not sure, but I’ve reached out to the label for more details. Regardless, this is your second chance to get this amazing record without paying secondary prices.

When asked about the vibe of Wabi Sabi, Sven Wunder said its purpose is to “reconnect with nature and concentrate on asymmetries and emphasize ornamentation to generate new ways of looking at the world, here and now.” Combining the early psychedelic inspirations, experimental jazz and lounge and, this time around, South and East Asian instrumentation, this is truly a unique and special listen. Don’t sleep on it. You can hear one track below from the record as well as short clips from each track after the ‘buy’ link.

The Details

Hi friends! We want to thank you for your patience here. Both @pianopianorecords and LITA are astounded with the reaction to both of these records, and THERE IS GOOD NEWS. We pulled some strings and have restocked the website with additional copies of BOTH Eastern Flowers and Wabi Sabi.

Price $30
