TOTW: Takuya Matsumoto_ An Oriental Tale

“An Oriental Tale” is my favourite work from Takuya Matsumotos “Assembly” EP.

On first listen I didn’t expect the track to still be on regular rotation in my music library months later but its interesting chord structures and melodic content have kept it there:
