片寄明人Chocolatの夫婦デュオと、カリフォルニア発の双子ユニットによるコラボ作が完成。前者のメロウでソング・オリエンテッドな作風と、後者のジャズ~ポスト・ロック志向が、〈AOR〉という共通項でシームレスに溶け合っている。憂いのあるハーモニーが絶妙にラフなアンサンブルに乗った瞬間の、ポスト・パンクのあれこれを彷彿とさせるスリリングな美しさがたまらない。ミックスでジョン・マッケンタイアも参加。


[English Translation]

Chocolat & Akito (married couple unit of pop singer Chocolat & her husband/Akito Katayose of 3-piece rock band GREAT 3) and The Mattson 2 (internationally praised real-life twin surf-jazz duo from California) have joined forces for this latest collaborative work. Sharing ‘citypop’ (defined as ‘AOR’ in Japan) as the common denominator, the distinctive styles of both parties, -mellow & song-oriented former and jazz/post rock-anchored latter- are seamlessly blended. Enjoy the irresistible, post-punk this-or-that evoking, thrilling beauty that appears in the very moments when the dreamy melancholic harmony meets perfectly with a miraculously rough ensemble. Be noted also, John McEntire (Tortoise) served as mix engineer on the entire album too.
