Album Review

Songs For Nao [coll] – [Chapter Music]

shiroi   3/22/2007   A Library, CD

Super cool collection of various low-fi-but-often-lots-going-on indie Japanese bands. Often with horns, acoustic guitars, tender female vocals and quirky male vocals. AMong my favorites are the lovely folk of “Swan” (#4), campfire style singalong if they invited a horn to go blat blat, which is “Lilac” (#6), male folk pop of “Stars” (#7), little girl style of ‘Summer Days” (#8), Shaggs meet grunge style of “Kilimanjaro” (#9), slow Bjork-ish folk of “Temperature of Windowside” (#10), female harmonica folk of “Good Night” (#11). These are all referring to song titles. #1 is not a Shaggs cover. Just Shaggs inc=fluenced. My Pal Foot Foot is the name of the band. Subarashii-no ongaku, sugoi! -Shiroi
