That supposedly new Sasagawa resaele is just a nation-wide re-issue of her miwaTALE EP resaeled in April and originally available at only her live venues and her homepage.Four songs done in a Celtic taste. I rather like it, seeing as how the Celtic flavour in her music has been rather lacking lately.

Dear John, Kaiya, Bennett, and the Yamada family: I am so sorry for your loss. Miwa was such a warm and generous person. I will always remember that. Miwa was one of the first, and most welcoming presences when I moved into my home at King and Niagara St. back in 2003. Wagamama was a beacon of warmth and comfort. She gave me advice when I first moved in, throughout my pregnancy, after the birth of my twins, and we commiserated so much about sisterhood, parenthood and so many other things. She baked the birthday cake for my girls' first two birthday parties! When I moved out of the neighborhood, one of the things I missed was Wagamama and chatting it up with Miwa. May the memory of her love sustain you all and my deepest condolences.
