Album Notes
"Sorrows Like Sea Billows: from Sendai to Sandy" began in 2011, after the March 11 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami that devastated the region around Sendai in Japan. The idea was to put together a compilation album to raise funds for disaster relief, and several artists from the Pacific Northwest donated their tracks for the cause. When the east coast of the U.S. was ravaged by Hurricane Sandy in October 2012, a new need presented itself, and the project was ready. HiCap Records is proud to present this collection of great synthpop and electronic jazz in order to raise funds for the continuing relief efforts for Sandy, Sendai, and other natural disasters.

Downtempo and electro-pop artist Lectronin leads off with a warm and lush electronic adaptation of composer Will Stewart's Japanese-influenced piano work "As Fall the Leaves of Nikko". Latin jazz group Rachichi's fantastic fusion of latin jazz, blues, and asian rhythms in "Dancing on the Water" is remixed with a touch of electro-disco by Lectronin. Pink Noise, described by the Portland Mercury as entirely authentic "goth-tinged synth pop", contributed the fun and fanciful "Japan". North by Northwest presents a down-tempo version of "Lydia" featuring the ethereal playing of guitarist and composer Salvatore Battaglia. The album rounds off with Isopod's uplifting analog synth-pop anthem "We Live for Love". HiCap Records and the artists thank you for any contribution you make towards disaster relief.
