Now Monotreme is a label close to our heart. Unfortunately, we often get their releases late on a Friday due to the distributor being a tiny bit demented. But this one's managed to arrive here mid-week & Kim, the proud proprietor saw fit to get a promo to us, so we can actually review the thing. Think the press on this is fairly accurate, I'm getting exposed to some wild, chirruping electronics ala early Mum, funky hip-hop beats, breezy, evocative synth-scapes, neo-classical flutterings and a spot of stomping drum 'n' bass action that sounds like a Moving Shadow tribute to Four Tet. One track 'Cryptomeria Rain' is particularly beautiful - relatively hushed but propulsive jazzy drums, & an outstandingly ecstatic piano refrain that suddenly dips into ambience & a recording of an increasingly volatile rain downpour. "Her Strange Dreams" has a great deal to offer. It works on many levels, a dreamy odyssey, a reflective beat-led electronica outing and a jazzy instrumental hip-hop album ala 'Duration' by Sixtoo. Sometimes downtempo, occasionally experimental & often insanely perky! The flow of this album is quite riveting, you cannot turn it off in case another sudden passage of wonder & delight should caress your ears. These two Japanese lads done good!!
