The first fully prepared album released from Drawing4-5.
Plainly speaking, the band with leader Satoshi Hamada at its center, portly boiling up, neither chemical nor organic, images founded on wholesome bedroom manner still abstract, when tried to make reappear, the strenuous efforts of an unspecified many of participation forms. The keywords that are hung out when explaining them; post rock, electronica, psychedelic, lo-fi, acid folk, etc. all seem to fit, but it is the wickedness of non-fitting comfort that is their inevitability. Ringing out while self-indulgently enjoying, I believe firmly. The atmosphere of a clamorous band is bedroom D.I.Y., forming a "place", that is to say a community, with company on the same wave length, everyone together grandly respiring as they play a composition.
However, on the occasion of working on what was thought of as a satisfactory album, it seems the editing work was an obstacle. For editing in a bedroom, i.e. solitude, is a confrontation with limitless freedom. Recording while shaking the air with the members' joint ownership of the seeds of images born bedside, afterwards increasingly an alchemic dismantling advancing towards construction. This important task of editing is conducted by leader Hamada alone, while greatly worrying, a freakishly addictive aesthetic sense, an unprecedented humor, and a listening taste holding partiality and disunion simultaneously, at the right of waiting for a miracle a baton of seven colors was procured and the vivid wonders colored.
The nature of diverse taste in music and the superiority of editing now, passing through a contemporaneous bustle of recent past, may be able to at last hold a flat distance. This album is a document of his and their movement around the past few years. Perhaps like a daydream strewn endless tale. What ever the case may be, for me it is the beginning of a dream in which I can fly, again and again, to an endless world.
