Shigeto has announced his forthcoming mini-LP titled Lineage, which is the follow up to the acclaimed Full Circle full length from 2010. The release is set for a January 31, 2012 release through Ghostly International. The title track showcases Shigeto’s signature production style with a foundation in live instrumentation techniques. Zach Saginaw records under the name Shigeto – his middle name, his grandfather’s name and a tribute to the Japanese heritage.
MP3: Shigeto – Lineage
The front cover of Lineage (see image on left) includes a photograph of Shigeto’s great grandfather’s house taken 1916 in Hiroshima, Japan while the LP/vinyl version of the back cover includes a photo of Shigeto Ohmura at the Amache Internment Camp in Grenada, Colorado after his family was transferred from Tule Lake Internment Camp. Saginaw is clear about the ancestral motivation referenced on the eight instrumentals on Lineage and delivers a masterpiece of sound and emotions.
