Limited double vinyl LP pressing. Kawabata Makoto emerges from a period of relative quiet with his first widely available solo release in several years, the blockbuster Krautrock-flavored Astro Love & Infinite Kisses. This lovely and impressionistic record showcases the other side of Makoto's outrageous works with Acid Mothers Temple. Taking cues from classics of the genre like Tangerine Dream's Phaedra and Steve Hillage's Rainbow Dome Musick, "Dos Nurages" is the album's centerpiece, a 41-minute hypnotic epic, with echoplex'd guitar anchoring a stream of expertly done glissando. The title track is a darker drone in the tradition of Kawabata's Inui series of releases for VHF. "Woman From Dream Island" closes the record with a thick buzz of tamboura overlaid with trippy backwards guitar, before giving way to a gentle, finger-picked acoustic coda.
