Please Release Me: Cornelius Shows His “Sensuous” Side

Dec 6th, 2006 // 2 Comments

Cornelius%20-%20Sensuous.jpgWelcome to another edition of “Please Release Me,” in which your Idolators request–nay beg–that an out-of-print, delayed or held-up-in-customs album be issued Stateside:

Artist: Cornelius
Hometown: Tokyo, Japan
Album: Sensuous, 2006
What is it?: Remix-mad musician Cornelius is known for his hop-skip-jumping across genres and reference points, and Sensuous continues that trend, throwing in a few out-and-out beautiful moments. “Fit Song” strips the idea of a danceable song down to its most essential parts, while the hyper “Gum” is a romp in the spirit of Cornelius’ 1998 thriller “Count Five Or Six.”
Where is it?: Sensuous came out in Japan last month, but Pitchfork reported that Cornelius is still looking for a Stateside distributor for the album; his previous records were put out in the U.S. by Matador, but that deal has expired.

    Oh, if you’re into this kind of stuff, the Tower Records on Broadway by NYU has a number of Takako Minekawa and Fantastic Plastic machine LPs (yes on vinyl) available. I got FPM’s “Luxury” which is not as good as “Too” but still rad.
