Seaside Lovers - Memories In Beach House, 1983


Today is a celebration of internet access to amazing things. This one-off collaboration of chiller-musical-god Hiroshi Sato and the relatively unknowns Akira Inoue and Masataka Matsutoya -- appropriately called "Seaside Lovers" -- is some of the most succulent fruit of this access. It's a trophy of Youtube's intercontinental ubiquity, and these three musicians are pressing all the right beachy chilltime buttons in all the right ways. Soothing flute, funky bass riffs, and sweeping synths, all saturated in reverb.

On the flip side, this is one of the rare times where we'll post an album with a few questionable tracks. The majority of the album is ridiculously listenable, especially the new age/funky soul/smooth jazz tracks, but there are 2 or 3 that require a very specific mood. If you are a jazz fusion fan, though, you will be PSYCHED. Plus, just look at this album cover! Below is their most famous track, but download to hear so much more...

  1. Both YouTube and Discogs point to this album being from 1983 - is your particular issue from 1990?
