Holly Lanasolyluna aka Sushi Neko Roll 22


Tokyo JP   Feb 2014

Artist Bio

Influences:   Lots and lots and lots. All of you too.

Hi, I'm back again for FAWM 2019. I am going to try to use a different toy synthesizer for each song I do this time around to rotate through my big collection. I will post a little timeline below of what I'm working with. You can find my stuff on Soundcloud under "Holly Lanasolyluna" or "Sushi Neko Roll." I also work as @santadharma with my husband Tomo. This is going to be my 6th FAWM.

2/4...Some things in the works, lots of little bits of song ideas, but not ready to share them yet. Tascam tape recorder is being a little weird, life has been a bit hectic, but hopefully we (@santadharmaband) can get on track soon. Will be listening today on my train commute!

2/7 working on some solo weirdo tracks, stuff I wouldn't normally do, but I get bored of it and decide it's poop and then don't post it. Might just throw a bunch of weird stuff at you guys soon. At least one solid @santadharma song on its way, but Tomo is too damn busy to record the banjolele it NEEDS.

2/8 posted a weirdo song; you guys are so awesome to support my weirdness. Tomo has got the flu. Boooo. Hopefully can avoid catching that. A couple brighter songs on the way.

2/13 Tomo has still been so sick so not much @santadharma going on, unfortunately. I've been hanging on by a thread, not sick yet, hopefully will stay that way. This is the time of FAWM where I wonder, how the f do I do this? 7 more songs?!?!

2/24 I guess I technically finished, but it feels like a cheat since it's mostly just because @balancelost did something cool with something I made. See if I can squeeze another thing out with @santadharma !

2/28 Thanks everyone! I will try to remember to do what I said I was going to do which is put a list of all the synthesizers I used for each song. I had a great time, but I'm reminded how I really need to do non-Tomo collabs, so I will probably reach out to some of you early next FAWM.

3/6 Finally have a little bit of down time today, so will catch up on listening. Thanks everyone so much. Your comments are so encouraging. <3

    Hey - no not me singing, on 'No Excuse' - no way! lol
    Singing isn't my thing at all. And the synth is just one of the sounds from Reason, not sure what it was called.
    On your comment for 'Hold Me' - yeah I was in a slump creatively, as for a few weeks prior, I felt I couldn't create anything that sounded good to me. I was frustrated with my skills and had some pretty crummy feelings about my music in general - as most of us creatives usually find ourselves at some point or another. But you're right - FAWM knocked all of that out the window! And thank you for the things you said about it.

  • @splittybooms  Mar 7

    I'd be 100% down to collab next go'round! You are a legit awesome artist who makes music that is right up my listening alley. It gives me something to look forward to knowing that we can make something awesome next year! Thank you for all the comments on my tracks, too - getting encouragement and real insight from so many peers and artists that I admire has been...well, awesome.
    If I don't see you or @santadharma around, have a great year and take care!

  • @balancelost  Mar 6

    Thanks! That's very kind. I'm living in Kyoto with my wife @yukinsain806 and she's helping me settle in. Mainly trying to get a handle on the language for the moment. I'll be fine as long as I don't have to count any objects!

  • @balancelost  Mar 6

    Yeah, I moved here in November. I'm not doing shows yet as I'm still trying to figure out a solo set-up until I can find some bandmates. But I do have some venues in mind to approach once I get my shit together.

  • @sherrycanary  Mar 4

    Ps..Under what name will i fi d you on FB

  • @iwilleatyou Mar 3

    No worries! If the Gods don't send Earth hurling into a big mass of fire into the never ending void, yes...let's collab next year. I'm willing to do any style. Also I am REALLY rushing through soundboard replies and not doing any commenting so sorry about not catching up to yours and Tomo's songs. Maybe later during the week I'll put some time to comment some more (if life/time permits).

  • @sci Mar 2

    "I loved the original so I have to admit Iโ€™m an easy sell" <-- arguably that makes it a harder sell, since there's a fair chance I could have ruined the original. ๐Ÿ˜
    glad to know I didn't! thanks for the comment!

  • @moonraccoon  Mar 2

    Oh wow - I totally need a tin can uke now ๐Ÿ˜€ Technically I only fawmed 30 songs - 2 were rewrites, and one remained unfinished at FAWM's end. That one song that hit all 4 weekly challenges was purely accidental.

  • @kovbleu  Mar 1

    I have to catch up on listening - but congrats on an awesome FAWM!!! <3

  • @adforperu  Mar 1

    Ah thank you.. it's been another fun one, though I'm pretty glad it's over now. 22 songs, woah! I've got some catching up to do, and shall do over the next few days... your stuff always tends to jump the queue ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • @zecoop  Mar 1

    My dream is that you can work something out!! You have all the time you want. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @wacha  Feb 28

    Thank you for your kind words on "Barbra" and congrats on your win!

  • @majordanby  Feb 28

    Thank you for listening and commenting. Sorry for being out the loop recently, I have some catch up listening to do.

  • @splittybooms  Feb 27

    RE: 'How It Goes' - thank you! To have a track communicate not only an era but also in a mood, really makes me feel good.
    You and your husband's music is one of my favorite finds, so your comments mean a lot!

  • @frozenlonesome Feb 25

    Thanks for listening and commenting on Perfect Cup of Coffee. Glad you enjoyed it with a cup of coffee. ๐Ÿคฉ

  • @zecoop  Feb 25

    You... Are awesome. Congrats on your win!!! Can't wait to catch up. Thank you so much for all the listening and for helping me complete my FAWM. I really love writing songs with you and feel very lucky. โค๏ธ

  • @jsini  Feb 20

    Thanks for commenting!

  • @caterwauler  Feb 15

    Re Aggressive Retsuko : haha, the comparison fits very well.
    Thanks for listening and commenting.

  • @zecoop  Feb 15

    btw... if you DID write something for Yacht, I would very likely be willing to mark it as a collaboration. Even though the song hasn't really struck me, I do think that with the right lyrics/vocal it could become something modern and cool. No pressure, but somewhere deep down, I do actually have faith in that song. Just have no idea what it would be, lol.

  • @bodhisvaha  Feb 14

    hey, thanks for taking a listen to "I'm always looking to the future"

  • @itoarazi Feb 13

    Thanks again! I put up another, much shorter track around the subject matter this morning. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @candle  Feb 13

    Thank you so much for your great comments on Robot Revolution & Shadowspawn. You're not the first one to talk about Ray Bradbury & my music. Again, thank you so much!

    See You In The Shadowsโ€ฆ

  • @iwilleatyou Feb 13

    Ok cool no prob ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • @jorh Feb 13

    Thanks for your lovely comments on โ€œbeautiful generationโ€ it is much appreciated

  • @acousticmaddie  Feb 13

    Thank you for the kind comment on Smoke in his beard <3

  • @jsini  Feb 13

    Thank you kindly for commenting on my bucket song. Greatly appreciate it!

  • @iwilleatyou Feb 13

    Just checked out one short episode. I admit I was entertained but I definitely got the message. Thanks for recommending it because I'm going to check out some more of this!

  • @iwilleatyou Feb 13

    Hoo boy...ok...I'll check it out. Hopefully it won't get me too pissed off. Hit me up when you are ready for a collab. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • @zecoop  Feb 13

    Bwahhhhh hahahaha.... I dare you to make something, lol. ๐Ÿ˜€
    Super cool - I can't wait to hear the "real" collab. ๐Ÿ˜€
    p.s. - I've listened to a bunch of these songs, but apparently I didn't write a comment! I'll fix that.

  • @iwilleatyou Feb 13

    I've never heard of Aggressive Retsuko. But if you want to do a metal song and need a collaborator let me know.

  • @itoarazi Feb 12

    Absolutely! Mr. Bone Spurs won't get me down. He'll just further inspire me to create art to rail against him. I actually have a 15-minute experimental track in which I took horrible audio from his vile supporters and dissolved it into ambience over electronica. So, believe me when I say I loved "No Wall".

  • @mikeb Feb 12

    Thanks for the listen and comment on 'Bridges'!

  • @owl  Feb 12

    thank you for the comments! For the #notacover challenge, just pick the title of a famous song (or have one assigned to you in the thread) and write something else with that title...

  • @zecoop  Feb 11

    I'm emailing you the second one - I really like how that one turned out. You can take your pick, or have both! (or neither) ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @zecoop  Feb 10

    I emailed you the song. It doesn't have to be this one of it doesn't click with you. It's kind of a downer, lol

  • @zecoop  Feb 10

    By the way, I'm starting to work on something that I hope to send to you. I made two different drum machine / drumkit combo tracks on my 8-track and turned the tape over to get reverse drums. I'm going to see what I can do with them, but they sound super cool. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @dillonrichards Feb 7

    Thanks so much for the feedback. Means a lot!

  • @candle  Feb 7

    Thanks for listening to my Ricky Martin's Corpse song. I think most people will miss the jokes, but I'm glad you still found it enjoyable.

    See You In The Shadowsโ€ฆ

  • @zecoop  Feb 7

    Thanks for checking out the creepy subway song! At first I thought about writing something for you with those drums, but I had no control over the song, lolol.
    BTW, I added some freaky guitar and remixed, so now it is about 1000 times more creepy, in case you wanted to check that out, lol. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @judypie  Feb 6

    No, YOU'RE so cool! Thank you for commenting, can't wait to listen to your first track! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @moonraccoon  Feb 6

    Thank you ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @majordanby  Feb 5

    You are welcome I really enjoyed listening and look forward to more.

  • @majordanby  Feb 5

    Thank you for listening and commenting. My guitar style is a little rough, so pleased how this turned out.

  • @frozenlonesome Feb 4

    Welcome back and thanks for listening.
    Canโ€™t wait to here some new tracks from you.

  • @karlsburg25  Feb 3

    Hello amazing lady . Canโ€™t wait to wrap my ear around your little ditties this year . I in Thailand but hoping to get plenty of listening in x

  • @zecoop  Jan 29

    That's great! If it is working, I'll also plan to start one that will end up with you too, so we'll go around the world in two directions this year. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @zecoop  Jan 29

    First, thanks a ton for sending a postcard! Second, do you and Tomo want to start a tape again this year? Or end a tape? Either way, let me know since we'll have to get moving on it to get it done on time. Last year's was so magical. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @nuj4x Jan 2019

  • @kovbleu  Jan 2019

    Can't wait to hear your awesomeness this year!!
