Asteroid and Butteryfly came out this week--her collaboration with Hiromitsu Agatsuma. Apparently the packaging has some glow-in-the-dark elements:

🪐『Asteroid and Butterfly』発売中🦋#やのとあがつま 1st Album『Asteroid and Butterfly』
耳だけでなく目でも楽しめるジャケットにも注目👀
強い光に当ててから、暗闇の中に入れると、タイポグラフィが浮き出るデザインになっております!是非お手に取って試してみて下さい♪#矢野顕子 #上妻宏光 pic.twitter.com/7kf4evS3Mt

Vinyl and CD are available on CDJapan. I'll have to save my allowance.

And then out just today, I think--a nice little tune that she wrote for an anime airing on Japanese TV this week, "Oyasan to boku", "The Landlady and I". On Spotify and iTunes.

Asteroid and Butterfly is on Spotify too, at least in the UK: https://open.spotify.com/album/1SUr7AjanY3MIrA5GsXv2U?si=aQ2jR6IIRACi4VZR3sTuog

I loved that first single, so really looking forward to listening to this.

The song is Bara no hana from Quruli's 2001 album "Team Rock," produced by Jim O'Rourke, no less. Rei Harakami did a remix of it, which brought him to Akiko Yano's attention, and they subsequently formed the duo Yanokami. This article has some of that history: https://www.japantimes.co.jp/culture/2008/04/11/music/jazz-icon-akiko-yano-finds-her-electronic-muse/

one month passes...

has anyone looked up the lyrics to Vet?

vet vet
i like to be a vet, i vet
wanna be a vet
i like to be a vet, i vet
wanna be a vet

crocodile’s got stomach cancer
hippo’s t–th are all decayed
cow’s got a swollen liver
lion’s got pneumonia
elephant’s got athlete’s foot
dog’s got a fractured hind leg
and your heart’s been broken by yet another girl

vet vet
i like to be a vet, i vet
wanna be a vet
i like to be a vet, i vet
wanna be a vet

dolphins with diarrhoea
bats with broken radar
overweight hawaiian girls eating too much chocolate
piranhas with constipation
telephone line is on the blink
your brother-in-law has got no money
and your wife has turned to drink
siamese cat’s got a bloodshot left eye
horse won’t run another step
polar bear’s miscarried
now gorilla’s got a bleeding nose
goat’s gone hysterical and eaten through the pen
everybody come to me
i’m gonna make you well again
