Debut from Japanese duo dip in the pool. Fairly minimal, often baroque-leaning synth and voice arrangements, with deep, widely spaced drums that, in such a synthetic context, takes on a cyber-medieval quality. Standouts are the title track and the stunningly beautiful "Rabo del Sol," the music video for which is previewed below--it comes from their 1991 laserdisc release of music videos. Both those tracks evoke a similar mystical gravitas, a perfect vessel for Miyako Koda's straight-tone vocal sobriety. (Interestingly, though a handful of tracks pick up to a spronky trot--like "Hasu No Enishi" and "View"--and feel like obvious video game scores, it was a slower, more ceremonious track called "Ismeel" that was later used in the PlayStation game Omega Boost.) The duo recently released a collaboration with the Visible Cloaks geniuses on RVNG, and unsurprisingly, it's very good.
