about

本作は英国グラスゴーを拠点に活動するジョー・マンゴーによる2ndアルバム。 盟友ヴァシュティ・ヴァニアンに「ユニークな才能」と言われる、誰をも魅了する彼女のクリスタル・ヴォイスの他に、マルチインストゥルメンタリストの彼女は、本作ではトレードマークであるギター、カリンバ、オムニコード、スクイーズボックスの上にミュージック・ソー、ハーモニウム、グロッケン、ピアノをふんだんに使い3年がかりで仕上げた。プロデューサーは、Adem Llhan (Adem, Silver Colums) で、もともとは4曲EPを共同制作するつもりが、あまりの溢れ出るアイデアにそれだけでは収まらず、今回のアルバムに発展したとのこと。

This is the Japanese version of Scotland's great singer and songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Jo Mango's 2nd album which includes 3 bonus tracks (including a Stina Nordenstam cover exclusive for this edition). "Murmuration" draws upon Jo's adventure whilst traveling the world as a member of Vashti Bunyan's band and her experiences over the last few years completing a Doctorate in Musicology plus her collaborations with David Byrne, Devendra Banhart, Teenage Fanclub amongst others.

Here's what Vashti Bunyan has to say about this album:

“Jo Mango is uniquely gifted – as a musician and as a performer. Her sense of fun in life made the times we spent on the road together (all over the UK, Europe, USA, Australia and Japan) quite luminous. Kind, original, musical and clever – I know Jo will be loved wherever she goes. Her new album 'Murmuration' is all I would have expected - beautifully crafted and carefully put together, but even more than that it is a gorgeous collection of thoughtful songs, especially 'Evermore' - where she plays kalimba to huge effect. Enchanting."
