Today I grooved out to "ohayashi" by Ichiko Aoba. I don’t know much about this artist, but found them through a playlist that was passed to my way by a friend, who got it from a staff member at our climbing gym, who regularly plays it.

While the track from the playlist, Sagu Palm’s Song was lovely, calming, a real teleporter of a track—today’s track ohayashi is pretty remarkable in its hurriedness. After about 2 minutes, you get the impression of being in a rush, the tempo is chomping at the bit to speed up as the nylon guitar crescendos, and a unique percussion takes over your left ear.
