Artist: Morimoto Naoki
Label: Totokoko, 2014
The first thing I say about this album is very signature of Totokoko's music. Sweet electronica tune combined with traditional ambient of folk and emotional atmospheres. Naoki presents three songs in this album which is cheerful and full of joys.
'A Wonder' is surprising opening. I was amazed when this song suddenly become full of vociferous people whistling and clapping hands. Soft voice in the end of this song is a perfect closing. 'Raintronica', nice title, comes up with sound of rain combined with twinkle electronic tune covered up with remarkable acoustic guitar lick. A good song for mumbling in a rainy days. In the end of the song, I like how the percussion accompanied the melodies beautifully. The last track is 'Yugure', nice beat and the percussion, I don't know what the instrument is, but I like it. For a few seconds, it turn out to be a bit gloomy then back to normal. It creates dynamic atmospheres to be unboring. This is a good album to be heard when you look for a soundtrack to enjoy your day alone. You can download it here.
