Slime Girls – “Yumemi / Lonely Planet Girl” – [Phat ‘n’ Phunky]
Experiential music; the expression of absorption, both Guan (observe) and Ding (stabilize).
Definitely a mix of insular melodies of (J)game soundtrack music and auteur pop rock, with
fleeting moments of melodies reminiscent of those explored by popular Japanese music more
broadly. A) Has the whole band. Chiptune or synth-y instrumentation plus dirty guitar,
bass, and drums. Everything reminds me of Virginia Dare, this included. Just a few jammy
parts, no fake ass “movements”. B) No improv/exploration, solo composition of electro-pop
by Pedro Silva. Not strings, not -well it is synth- but tries to be more like a rhythm
machine. Although the record is 45, play this 33 for the nine melodies of Earthbound.
Definitely can alienate a crowd, listen alone, for the over arrangement is quite
embellished. Out of LA, 2nd release. -Dada Diogenes
