  • Akiko Yano's 1980 album, Gohan Ga Dekitayo, is getting reissued via Wewantsounds. Roughly translating to "dinner is ready," the double-LP was recorded with Yellow Magic Orchestra and originally coproduced with Ryuichi Sakamoto across Tokyo and Los Angeles. The 14-track album showcases Yano's move away from her pop and jazz funk origins towards a synth pop sound. The reissue will come out next month, complete with original cover art and a four-page insert. Akiko Yano is a Japanese pop and jazz musician and a longtime YMO affiliate. This reissue follows two Yano albums rereleased on Wewantsounds this year, Japanese Girl and Iroha Ni Kompeito. Read Gabriel Szatan's recent Rewind review on YMO's Solid State Survivor for the breakout LP's 40th anniversary. Listen to the album.
