Album Review

Sachiko – “You Never Atone For… ” – [Musik Atlach]

Thurston Hunger   4/27/2007   A Library, CD

On the first two tracks, there is one question: Why did the astronauts
leave that poor Japanese girl alone on the moon? She sings and her songs
mix with the three degrees of drone in the universe before escaping all
gravity and turning into nebulas. On the “Fire Yith”, she has been
placed in some star’s core, and her electronic soul triggers alarm rage.
“Never Go Down Yarai-Zaka” could be Red Riding Hood meeting up with
the space vampires from “Lifeforce”, very nice deep undertones on that.
“Saika” is a sort of solar flare sing-along-with-sinewave that finds
harmony between human and electonics. Lastly “Yama-Keburi” is a simple
four-stroke chord pattern with more man-meets-machine-meets-woman
musical meditation. A lunar rover rumble joins in towards the end
with low frequency beat bleating… Not much evolution on these tracks
or in space, beauty gets sealed in vacuum-tight.
Note this is NOT Sachiko M, but Sachiko from the mighty Overhang Party!
