Ametsub - Linear Cryptics

Ametsub is a young artist from Japan who makes airy electronic music.
He was invited to an electronic music circuit in Japan and quickly garnered attention -- leading to contributions on various compilation albums (such as with Kid 606).
In 2006 he released his debut album, 'Linear Cryptics', at the slight age of 20.

Anyone who's interested in stuff like Otograph, or just often-frenetic rises/swells of tranquil loops, calming melodies, etc. should give this a listen. Also comes with a fair amount of glitch-elements like Kashiwa Daisuke.

His follow-up album, 'The Nothings of the North' came out this past Feb.
