Cornelius is the brainchild of Japanese multi-instrumentalist Keigo Oyamada. Performing musician since his teens, Oyamada created his creative alter-ego (the name is an homage to the Planet of the Apes), in the early 1990's from the ashes of his previous project, Flipper's Guitar.
With the 1997 release of Fantasma, Cornelius gained international recognition for his cut and paste style reminiscent of American counterparts Beck and The Beastie Boys. Being called a "modern day Brian Wilson" for his orchestral-style arrangements and production techniques, Cornelius subsequently he became one of the most sought after producer/remixers in the world, working with artists ranging from Blur, Beck Bloc Party, and MGMT, to James Brown.
Fantasma is back in a limited vinyl pressing through Lefse Records. Out June 10, this reissue includes 4 new previously unreleased bonus tracks. Pre-orders available now in the Lefse Store: http://tinyurl.com/LefseFantasma

Living Hour began in the basements of south Winnipeg, writing dreamy love songs inspired by the cinematic sky of their hometown. Blending bright shimmering guitar pop with thick casio drones and uniquely powerful, smoky vocals, their sound washes over you like the soundtrack to the best parking lot makeout session of your youth. Watery echoes of gorgeously sung melodies, psychedelic interlocking guitar, and huge driving crescendos create an enchanting wall of blissful dream pop.
