Yggdrasil 1 - JIMMY JIMMY / ANECHOIS / START OF THE DAY (3-Split CDEP)
by Start of the Day and ANECHOIS
They say there is one tree that connects the world. (Yggdrasil) There is a tale that from the Tree of Life three branches stretch out to connect three worlds and are supported by a vast trunk. These times are currently in sway.
Restlessly moving back and forth. Mass media is filled with images of natural disasters, wars, and controversy over politics and religion. What is the truth? What are the falsehoods? What is right and what is wrong? There exist many viewpoints on reality and truth despite the zealous opinions of many. Unconsciously, we continue on with a distorted view of reality. There are times when we get buried in the opinions and beliefs of others. There are times where we seem to forget ourselves.
In times like these, when your heart is full of sorrow, when the hearts of the ones you love are plunged in grief;... please listen to Yggdrasill The world is one The powerful gravity of music connects us all, no matter the distance. Three bands chosen from across Asia have come together to create the first compilation album: Yggdrasill 1.

From an endless beach, ascend the stairway of light into the sky.
From here, the view is so beautiful it’s heartrending. Therefor, we wave the baton.
With much thought on melody, START OF THE DAY is a female-fronted rock band from Japan.
With a drifting feeling between genres like post-rock, shoegazer, classical; chorus and harmony weave together to make a sound that only be described as a “band orchestra”.
The unique music they make projects LOVE and HOPE to the heart of the listener.
