Chihei Hatakeyama
Minima Moralia

As with most Kranky releases, this is better at medatative moments. It's bizarre at best in any other listening situation. Also as is standard with Kranky, it's a great record. Here's the tracklisting:

"Bonfire on the Field"
"Swaying Curtain in the Window"
"Starlight Reflecting on the Surface of the River"
"Towards a Tranquil Marsh"
"Granular Haze"
"Inside of the Pocket"
"Beside a Well"

Enjoy in headphones. The last Kranky release I was lucky enough to thoroughly enjoy upon first listening (it was just the timing) was Bird Show. I listened to it one bright morning immediately after waking. Maybe try this one Saturday morning?
