This is all about Lihue for me. From the moment you hear those first notes and that birdsong, you know you're in for a real treat. Going to be playing this come rain or shine for the foreseeable future.

Top tier Hawaiian disco boogie masterpiece available for the first time on 45. It took us 3 years to persuade Nohelani Cypriano to let us do 'Lihue' , a brilliant fairly obscure disco boogie track but if you are a fan and you keep trying your enthusiasm for the music pays off. Not only are we are just delighted to present 'Lihue' on 7 for the first time (Previously LP only) but to top it off the flip is a track from a VERY rare hawaiian 45 also by Nohelani called 'playing with fire', which sounds like a party track straight out your favorite 80s film. I rate it, which means it's good! Its like rare-groove scene all over again but with new records.
The mallet percussionist and improviser's solo debut is flush with nostalgic melodies and stirring dissonances—a rich, experimental universe well worth exploring. Bandcamp Album of the Day Jan 15, 2021
