hec_music_ly What a gorgeous, multifaceted little gem of an album! Every sound seems carefully considered and lovingly composed. A real joy to listen to, and one of the few albums I own that actually helps me get into a flow state. <3 Favorite track: Streetlights.

Zenibuka I discovered Laryssa Okada while playing Manifold Garden and I've been instantly overwhelmed by her talent ! This EP is a different kind of work, very delicate and trippy. I love her discreet voice, it gives the whole thing a sensitive touch. The production is flawless. Favorite track: Mou! (もう!).

jammingdevice Holy shit, what an incredible EP from beginning to end. Deep, dark, contemplative synthwave with masterful production, lyricism and atmosphere, hitting an absolute home run in "Mou!". It's focused like a laser and nails its target with perfect precision. What the hell did we do to deserve this? Favorite track: Mou! (もう!).

i left you there i turned away walked out the door who knew how far we'd stray apart? i miss you do you ever think of me? what do you see? the light hits 3:18 everything, comes crashing-

Echoes 03:26
what a year it’s been learned a thing or two isolate, extricate yourself from what you knew bigger picture, where are you? amidst the cries how have you survived? echoes of the past the ways that we were can we be better than we were before? guilt’s a fickle friend how can you pretend the rules don’t apply? 君の何が (what about you) 特別ですか? (is so special?) light the sky until it’s orange and grey blistering shades of decay amidst the cries how have you survived? echoes of the past the ways that we were can we be better than we were before? grab hold of your life do all that you can these days are numbered rise up, take a stand these days more than anything i dream of you more than anything, more than anything i dream of peace, quiet, no internal bias, corrupt politicians reprimanded for connivance a feeling of looking forward to see figureheads of true equality can we be better than we were before?

wide awake i think of ways to let you go the fabric of my life has frayed from what i know do the veins of each and every tree feel the weight of water? do the ways you've changed my everyday amount to less than what we have to offer? what does it mean if we communicate in ways we hate? growth, change, spite “give it some time” ね疲れた (hey, i'm tired) あ~ (ah...) もう (enough) いいですけどべつに (it's ok, it's nothing) どうせ。 (whatever.) lets just see 「気付かなかった」君は言うけど。。。("I didn't notice," you say. .. ..) as the waves crash over me 「信じてよ」なんて ("Trust me") 聞き飽きた (tired of hearing it) there's a place where i go, and i know you'll never know if i don't open the door here's the key もう ! (enough!) all the times that I believed you, I was wrong 
ガラス、砕けても (glass, even if broken) 砂は戻らない (Sand does not return) 信じて (believe me)、I was wrong how did we get here? downcast eyes, unfeeling from outside you're hard to read have you seen the sunrise? just look up, there's such a range unseen unconsciously, we associate all the little things, like hemlock in the air on the pavement, lights, they glisten and raindrops speak for the things we keep inside sing to me, your fantasy i'll take you there all of the growth, change, spite “give it some time” do the veins of each and every tree feel the weight of water? do the ways you've changed my everyday amount to less than what we have to offer? もう (enough) いいですけどべつに (it's ok, it's nothing) どうせ。 (whatever.) lets just see 「気付かなかった」君は言うけど。。。("I didn't notice," you say. .. ..) as the waves crash over me 「信じてよ」なんて ("Trust me") 聞き飽きた (tired of hearing it) there's a place where i go, and i know you'll never know if i don't open the door here's the key もう ! (enough!) all the times that I believed you, I was wrong 
ガラス、砕けても (glass, even if broken) 砂は戻らない (Sand does not return) 信じて (believe me)、I was wrong how did we get here? all the times that I believed you, I was wrong 
ガラス、砕けても (glass, even if broken) 砂は戻らない (Sand does not return) 信じて (believe me)、I was wrong how did we get here?

Streetlights 03:05
streetlights alone on the highway ribbons of red dress the rainy nights driving in search something different haunted by all that i knew with you 頭上の照明 (Overhead lighting) は届かない (does not reach) 地面を駆け巡れ (Drive around the ground) 浮かぶのは (what comes to mind) テールランプだけ (Only the tail lamp) 追いかけてもさよならtonight (Goodbye tonight) 可哀想に (Oh, poor thing) 泣きべそをかく (crying) 手放した事、後悔ね♡tonight (I regret that I let go of my hand ♡ tonight) strangers linked by a thread subconsciously lead to someone new how do you do? hey, when did i begin to lose you? i recall the times we fought and yet i… 頭上の照明 (Overhead lighting) は届かない (does not reach) 地面を駆け巡れ (Drive around the ground) 浮かぶのは (what comes to mind) テールランプだけ (Only the tail lamp) 追いかけてもさよならtonight (Goodbye tonight) 可哀想に (Oh, poor thing) 泣きべそをかく (crying) 手放した事、後悔ね♡tonight (I regret that I let go of my hand ♡ tonight)
