Second album from LUCKY TAPES, the Japanese trio who are gaining popularity beyond the realm of the indie scene ever since the release of the highly acclaimed first album. While the ensemble by such guest players as mabanua (Japanese multi-instrumentalist) and Shinpei Ruike (Japanese jazz musician/trumpeter) adds glamour and depth to the sound, they comes off as pursuing their own funkiness with a low center of gravity. With their fascinating songwriting style that incorporates bluesy gloom, this ambitious album shows that while maintaining their signature pop feel, they have deepened their caliber as a soul-influenced rock band.
