Aaaaahhh. Soothing. We all need a bit of soothing. Writing reviews about such gentle music is hard enough when sat alone in near silence, in this case I have the added distraction of my mother fussing about in the background. I’m reviewing from home you see and she has just popped in to do a spot of hoovering (Note: I am perfectly capable of doing the hoovering myself but I think she enjoys it so who’s to argue?)
The hoover is blaring from downstairs, there’s the sound of things crashing about but all I can hear is the soft pillowy sounds eminating from the speakers. Hakobune is a guitarist from Japan who has a knack of knowing exactly how to do this type of stuff. Opener ‘Mizunara’ is spot on perfect, to the point that the stress that builds up on the nape of my neck is starting to dissipate. ‘Buna’ is darker whilst retaining a dark melodic core of descending notes.
Fans of Stars of the Lid, anything on the Home Normal or Hibernate labels will lap this sort of stuff up. Very, very limited cassette only release.
