Experimental noise music compilation released by Indonesian noise music label, Noise Bombing. Featuring female musicians from around the world.

Track uses found sounds and field recordings taken over two years in Tokyo, Japan. Featuring political sound trucks, cicadas, waterfalls and other ambient sounds.

Review: "Kat Whatley does some quality soundscape politics for our green ears, filling up the atmosphere with some kind of ambient adventure in which soundscapes of a variety of relaxed environments are presented including the fresh airs of the night that had come with them. Think of the ducks in the back, the cricket choirs, the flat with the open window and a deaf resident Individual inside who watches the television too loudly. It’s all like going on a vacation to a hot subtropical climate in which animals and insects are dominating the air in order to set a hot climate in audio form; it makes you feel all sweaty and with dripping armpits just by hearing it; but also excited and happy by being so easily tele transported through sound to an wonderful place on earth."
