Review: Munich-based label Gan-Shin might have its head in Bavaria, but its soul is very much on the island of Japan, just on the other side of the world. These guys specialise in Japanese music off all shapes and sizes, focussing heavily on rock, but certainly not excluding the plethora of genres that have become highly-specialized niches in cities like Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya. Japan Anima(Tor)'s exhibition is part of a wider series of BGM material, and this particular release is a glorious assortment of neo-classical rhythms, and material that could easily feature on a soundtrack. Moving, diverse, pensive, and a rare gem to find these days.
