Noble label releases albums under the concept of "music for daily life" and we start the new year 2007 with Gutevolk. Her new album "tiny people singing over the rainbow" marks the label's 14th release.
Gutevolk is the project of Hirono Nishiyama who is known through various releases from Nobukazu Takemura's "Childisc" and Haruomi Hosono's "Daisyworld" labels. After her last album "suomi" which was her first band effort, she created movie soundtracks and music for TV commercials, toured Europe and released a mini album from Taylor Deupree's label "Happy". This album is her first full album in three and a half years.
Nobel label's Kazumasa Hashimoto co-produced Gutevolk's new album, arranging, mixing and mastering her creations. His outstanding arrangement and processing techniques wrap her innocent but dignified and noble vocals which have attracted Nobukazu Takemura and Masakatsu Takagi and her absorbing melody line. While this album covers multiple music genres such as jazz, bossa nova, soft rock and electronica, it creates high intensity work, becoming the future standard of "pop music".
Her vocals evoking faint nostalgia, and a stream of tracks with catchy melody lines and beautiful harmony will take listeners on their own internal journey to a past, a future, a bottom of the ocean or an end of the universe.
