REVIEW: THE LIONS SHARE (BLOG)
One of the choice cuts of today’s new music for me is the album Mitosis
from the Japanese artist Moskitoo . This Sapporo born, Tokyo based lady bills herself as sound & graphic designer and vocalist now based in . According to her record company’s, 12K, blurb “she creates her own musical world using everyday instruments and objects like guitars, xylophones, and toys, to produce a style where electronic sounds and the harmonic layer of her unique voice meet.”
Whatever about the process, the end result is pretty special, if quite amorphous, reminding me a lot of some of the female-fronted fractured-electronica that Morr Music are renowned for. Except that the vocals are in Japanese (I Think) rather than Icelandic, German or broken English. I am only on my second listen so am not really in a position to do a detailed review but if, like me, you like what you hear, her back catalogue, including her 2007 debut album Drape
, is on Spotify.
