No Pumpkin: Amunoa’s “Cinderella Song”

First off – and this ties in a bit – here’s a shameless plug for the intro to Japanese netlabels I wrote for Pitchfork. Chances are if you read this blog semi-regularly, you’ve been exposed to music from most of those digital imprints…but check it out!

Their next release comes courtesy of producer Amunoa, based out of Nagano, and they’ve shared the title track to it today. “Cinderella Song’ is a loaded number, nearly every second stuffed with upbeat synth flurries and…what at one point sounds like Windows booting up.
