Ai Aso - Goodness from Japan

Ai Aso is a singer and musician from Japan, who has released a half dozen records on the excellent Pedal Records label, and is best known stateside for appearing on Michio Kurihara's solo CD's. A good number of her songs feature effortless guitar lines mixed with her airy and emotive vocals. She gets a hand form members of The Stars and Boris, creating acid tinged folk with a pinch of psychedelic thrown in for good measure.

As far as I can tell all of her records have only been released in Japan, and since she has played a limited number of shows in the U.S., may be a bit hard to find in American record shops. Bibabidi has some of her mp3s to download.
