“Shizuku” release party

Thank you everyone who came out to the 2011 12k showcase and “Shizuku” release party!!!! and apologies to those of you that may not have gotten in at the last minute. It was quite a full house combined with a smaller venue and it was pretty tight, so thank you for putting up with the crowded conditions. BIG THANKS to Keiichi, Tetsuro and Sanae for organizing the event and for all of the energy and hard work they put into the show and promoting it! And a special thanks to Taylor for making the whole event and release possible, for working tirelessly until the end to get “Shizuku” pressed and ready in time for the event. All of the artists played varied and beautiful sets and I think people were treated to a range of sound that showcased the breadth and depth of 12k as a continually evolving label, constantly growing and pushing into new territories. We are honored and humbled to be part of such an inspiring label and roster of artists we so deeply respect

ILLUHA Rehearsal


We are busy preparing for our live set this coming Friday, October 14.

Only one more week until”Shizuku” is available from 12k and worldwide distributors on October 18! We are so excited for everyone to hear our album. All in all we worked on this album for four years and much life transpired in between. We are happy to finally be able to release this work and for it to take on a life of its own. We are so thankful to Taylor Deupree for his support and belief in our work, to all of the guest musicians and others who contributed to the creation of this album…and to you, the listener, for allowing the work to grow and take on new forms and life.

Much love,
