多くのゲストとのバンド・アンサンブルを響かせた前作から一転、丸ごと一人で宅録されたという新作は、打ち込み感の強いインストも含めて風通しの良さは相変わらず。冒頭のジャズ・ポップ“Roji”からナイーヴで人懐っこい音世界が広がっている。平熱のディスコ・ファンク“Moebius”やカントリー調の弾き語り曲“あいがあって”などを両極のアクセントにしつつ、まろやかなトーンを貫く歌心がほっと一息つかせてくれる。


[English Translation]
Oh Shu  "PICTURE"

Making an about-turn from his previous release that beautifully rings out band ensembles played by the array of guest artists he teamed up with, this latest piece from Oh Shu, the Shanghai born singer-songwriter, was recorded completely on his own at his home studio, but his usual airy openness remains unchanged, even with the instrumental tracks of heavy machine-programmed sounds. Beginning with the jazz pop number “Roji”, a naïve yet affable sound world spreads throughout the album. Tracks such as the afebrile disco funk tune “Moebius” or the country-ish “Ai ga Atte (meaning There’s Love)” sung with his guitar are used as the accents of two extremes, and the sincerity in the ever mellow tone of his singing allows the listener to sit back and enjoy a relaxing breather.
