“Janet”… Janet Jackson covers album featuring 16 artists is available via Tin Angel Records.  

“The project has been 7 years in the making and is the brainchild of our good friend Jan Lankisch. After hearing Janet’s music for the first time in 1989 he instantly became a fan. ‘It blew my mind’ he says ‘you could call it a first-love experience.’ The idea came to realisation in 2008 after meeting the band Dirty Projectors. They spoke about The Jacksons and Jan mentioned how he’d always preferred Janet’s records to Michael’s, and that it would be fun to pay tribute to her.”

 こんなにメロディックなSSWなのに、なぜかいつも倒錯気味な被りものが…どうも好きらしいスティーヴン・スタインブリンク。現在はオリンピア在住ですが、かつてはアリゾナ州フェニックスでフレンチ・クオーターというソロ・プロジェクトで評判に。その頃は「ボクはカートゥーン描きのポップ・ミュージック・メイカー」なんて語ってました。LAKEのアンドリュー・ドーセットもその頃からのコラボレーター。今度のアルバム『Arranged Waves』は、フェニックスで録音した一昨年のアルバム『I Drew a Picture』に続く作品で、オリンピアでアンドリュー・ドーセットと一緒に録音、LAKEのメンバーたちもバックアップした作品で、UKレーベル、Melodic Recordsからの初リリース、日本盤はP-Vineからリリースされています。
