OUT NOW: Que Sakamoto Debut on Hivern Discs

'Hivernation Vol.4' is out now! The fourth installment closes the 'Hivernation' project, a compilation series from the label Hivern Discs by John Talabot conceived as a way of documenting music created during the lockdown caused by the coronavirus pandemic. For the last issue our Que Sakamoto together with NT Feat. 劇団 歴史新大陸 contributed a nice track with the wonderful title "Maketetamaruka" and it turns out to be a real secret weapon.

One more important thing: 'Hivernation' will remain a project exclusively for Bandcamp, which cannot be heard or acquired on any other platform.
