33 - Mana Hardcore / Tanaka Matsuri

I went up to Tochigi Prefecture with the Dead Sea Dropouts to play a harvest festival at a local rice farm.  That's where Erin makes her return on the podcast! We talk about the festival and what it means with the rice farmer Takenji san! We also interview some of the locals.  This is what I call an introduction.

Then Mana & I talk about our changing attitudes towards music. We sat in a park in Adachi ku next to two elevated expressways and a so-called river.  A good honest evaluation of our current thoughts as songwriters.
