2nd album “Memorabilia”
Co-produced by Tatsuki Hashimoto. Toshihiko Kasai for recording / mixing. Mastering is done by John Davis of Metropolis Studios (UK).
“i/o”, the first release from the album, is a danceable electronic number that symbolizes this work with a sound like dubstep. “Last Summer” is a new release of the song released in the acoustic version last year as an Alternate Mix with a beautiful arrangement, and 3D sound. The title song “Memorabilia” starts like a folky SSW with acoustic guitar and bassoon, and changes to a magnificent shoegaze sound in the second half. “Odyssey”, the lead song of the album, is the song that puts the most emphasis on the theme “remembering”. It’s a number that incorporates Chicago house / Detroit techno elements while being an iconic refrain and emotional and melodious song.
