Here's a trio of 7"s from Japanese guitarist Ryo Takematsu, with a couple of originals and five covers. 'Six-O-Seven Blues' itself is excellent, a multitracked six-minute passage where Takematsu he gently builds up a sparse and bluesy collage of sleepy twang'n'twinkle overlaid with spaced out drones and cosmic scrawl.

7/10 Mike Staff review, 20 February 2014

Here's a trio of 7"s from Japanese guitarist Ryo Takematsu, with a couple of originals and five covers. 'Six-O-Seven Blues' itself is excellent, a multitracked six-minute passage where Takematsu he gently builds up a sparse and bluesy collage of sleepy twang'n'twinkle overlaid with spaced out drones and cosmic scrawl. It's really laid back. Think Plantagenet 3 interpreting John Carpenter's 'They Live' soundtrack and you're somewhere close.

The covers, meanwhile, move into guitar soli territory, with Takematsu playing unaccompanied through a Moore, a James and three Faheys. He really does have a beautifully measured playing style, twangy and expressive but peaceful and precise with it. This is a really lovely EP, although I've never been a fan of the fiddly multi-7" format.
