June Chikuma - Les Archives


Les Archives -cover art

Les Archives is composed, arranged, and produced by the elusive Japanese artist June Chikuma. The album, a whooping gonzo of synthesizers, samplers, drum machines, and a mysterious string quartet, remains as vibrant now as it did when released on Toru Hatano’s Picture Label as Divertimento in 1986. June Chikuma’s Les Archives will be released on March 22, 2019 as an LP with limited edition 7” and digital formats via Freedom To Spend.
