Tokyo’s Sparrows (aka Ryota Miyake, one half of electro-meisters CRYSTAL) gets truly global with his new album Berries, due 27th September via FLAU.

Indulging in the “pale, dreamy, psychic” student days he spent abroad, Sparrows latest album enrols guest spots by international artists such as Fazerdaze (New Zealand), Julián Mayorga (Spain), Casey MQ (Canada), Vincent Ruiz aka Yung Veerp (Switzerland) and Iranian-American producer Kamron Saniee, the results of which create a cocktail of sweetly mellow road trip music that fuses Yellow Magic Orchestra-leaning psych-jazz pop with 16-bit video game soundtracks and flighty Beta Band outtakes.
