エッジーなトラックとヘンテコなラップの融合で噂に火の点いた『羅生門』から半年、早くも3枚目のミニ・アルバムが登場というハイペースぶり。資料によると今回は〈ゆるふわラップとは言わせない〉とのことですが、前作と同じくゆるふわ感は特になく、某カリスマっぽい角張った表現から幅を広げたコムアイの歌唱に、多彩さを増したKenmochi Hidefumiのビートがカッコ良く走り抜けます。ストレンジにしてストレート!

Only half a year from their previous release, "Rasho Mon", which ignited fire to the buzz already going about then with its combination of the edgy tracks and geeky rap, the unit is already releasing their 3rd mini-album. According to reports, this time they are "not taking any comments that the rap is 'loose and fluffy'", but just like their previous release which never had that 'loose'ness nor the 'fluffi'ness they fear, neither has this latest one. KOMUAI the vocalist has definitely expanded her vocal capabilities from the charismatic and edgy representations in the previous works, while instrumental creator Hidefumi Kenmochi complements the tracks with glamorous beats hurtling away throughout the album. Strange pitch, but a straight pitch!

 

 

いわゆる歌も交えながらラップ主体のヴォーカル表現を聴かせる、コムアイをフロントに据えたユニットの新作。韻よりもシャープな単語の連なりを意識したリリックはいわゆるラップ的なデリヴァリーとはひと味異なる直線的なもので、それゆえのナンセンスな味わいやフリーキーなフロウ展開が聴きどころ。

[English Translation]
This is the latest release from the unit with vocalist KOMUAI as frontwoman, whose performance is based on the so-called rap-based-vocal-added style. Lyrics that place more emphasis on the sequence of shrewd words rather than on the rhymes are pretty straightforward and slightly different from the typical rap-like deliveries, which all the more make the nonsenseness and freaky flows stand out.
