EIKO ISHIBASHI returns from her Imitation of Life in an all-new Car and Freezer! Ever wonder if you could make an album twice, with completely different lyrics? It'd probably help if you had two completely different languages to draw from, and for Car and Freezer, that's exactly what Eiko did. In 2013, we introduced Eiko to the world outside of Japan by way of her first US album release. At that time, we explained that Eiko was an instrumentalist and arranger who had come into writing songs somewhat accidentally. She's been doing so without further accident since 2006, with a series of acclaimed albums in Japan. Her previous album, Imitation of Life, was so developed lyrically that it was in essence a song cycle linked by a science-fiction narrative. This natural evolution in her writing notwithstanding, Eiko has often questioned her role as a creator of songs, seeking some way to be at peace with the song while wondering if it was right that she was the human singing them.
