Kim Doo Soo- 10 days butterfly
'Kim Doo Soo is the deepest and most introspective of Korea's acid-folk singers. Many are the legends that cling to his songs -- political oppression, alcoholism, suicide, a ten-year period of mountain seclusion. Despite having been active since the mid-'80s and having released four acclaimed albums in Korea, most Western listeners only became aware of him through his tracks on the Damon & Naomi compilation, International Sad Hits. On 10 Days Butterly, his fifth album, he mines productive veins of profound melancholy, animistic nature, and unfathomable, hermetic affection. The whole is couched in a veil of the most gorgeous, still melodicism, Kim's vocals and guitar shaded with sublte accordion, violin, piano, organ and harmonica. A reflective and unearthly beautiful masterpiece.' - Alan Cummings'
