Bryan and I have been big deee-lite fans for years, and i met lady kier this year, and her mom a long time ago. Actually i, richard, am the main deee-lite-head. But Deee-lite is so much about Lady Kier, and she gets all the publicity. So we thought we'd dedicate a page of info on the genius that is Towa Tei.
His new album "Future Listening" is a venture into his easy listening thing, not muzak, but music that is easy to listen to. On the album he works with Joi Cardwell, Bebel Gilberto (daughter of Joao Gilberto), Ryuichi Sakamoto, Maki Nomiya of pizzicato 5, and numerous other notables that we are too dumb to know. Everyone I hear from raves about this album. Hirofumi says it's the best album he's heard all year. We are diggin it too.
