Before the Sun with Fluffytails - An Interview

Jumpei Takagi é a mente sonhadora por trás do climático, hipnótico e introspectivo Fluffytails.

Suas criações são peças que flertam com o ambient e o dreampop, evocando Durutti Column, A.R. Kane, Cocteau Twins e Slowdive.

Especialmente recomendado em momentos de introspecção profunda e calmaria extrema, quando mais silêncio melhor para enfim poder apreciar minuciosamente detalhe por detalhe da música do Fluffytails.
