This is the Digital Download reissue of the complete audio version of Niju that came out in Ristretto in May, 2008.
Grain of Sound is very proud to release this brilliant debut album from Asamo, making it now available worldwide.
The first version of Niju was released on a limited edition 3″ CD-R, in May 2004, with 3 tracks and when Shinjiro Yamaguchi was just 20 years old. An expanded digital edition came out 4 years later, also in Ristretto, with 3 additional tracks.
Ristretto was the sister-label of Grain of Sound, active between 2004-2008.
