Luis means "Light" in Armenian and Nanook is "white bear" in Inuit. Luis Nanook is a duo comprised of Tsutomu Satachi (vocal / acoustic guitar) who is a singer songwriter gifted with his angelic voice and Chihei Hatakeyama (Sound Processing / Electric Guitar) who is known for his beautiful releases on worldwide labels such as Kranky (US).
The album reminds us of the magnificent and silent landscape of Siberia with the taste of 60~70's folk sounds. After extensive experiments and trials, they have succeeded in packaging the utmost of their character which sounds truly deep and diverse immersing the audiences into an one and only experience.
The nostalgic echos of the acoustic guitar and myriads of tiny and colorful electronic ambience makes a beautiful contrast with Tsutomu's husky and tender voice brining up heartfelt moments.
What makes Luis Nanook so fascinating is their simplicity in the structure focusing on the vocals with limited instruments yet leaving us with variety of impressions. And this album just goes on quietly like one piece of a tale. The birth of the newest 2010 folk sound.
