Featuring the radio single, Atlas Face, co-written and performed by Mike Patton, Umlaut’s debut selt-titled album is whimsical, eccentric, dark and nothing you’ve ever heard before.

"Tenji Nozoki (及位典司) (born February 16, 1950), best known by the stage name Kazuki Tomokawa (友川 かずき), is a prolific japanese musician, active in the Japanese music scene since the early seventies. He is often described as a "screaming philosopher" due to his idiosyncratic singing style. His music has been used in the films of cult directors Takashi Miike and Koji Wakamatsu, and he also appears in person in Miike's Izo (2004)."
