Koji Maruyama – Comune (2016)



  • Modern classical 
  • Minimalism 
  • Post-classical 
  • Art music 
  • Piano music 
  • Improvised music


Comment: it happened about one year ago when I reviewed the Japanese musican Koji Maruyama`s issue Isos being released on Totokoko imprint in 2015 where I got acquainted with his exquisite modern classical music. In those days the artist commingled the genre with concrete sounds, however, in general his brand new one is without organic sounds (the only exception is Venice). In spite of it, this 5-notch issue is a wondrous one where Maruyama searches for balance between free flow and more determined compositions. For instance, Venice, and op. 344 are lovely piano music based improvisations, on the other side, Aoi Hasu, which can be considered the central composition due to its length and emphasis is a remarkably more minimalism oriented pace, which is based on vowel bits to be teetered between the stereo channels and suggestive iterations and subtle droning atop. Inside the track it gets switchbacked again and again in a  magnificent mode. Uzume is a very short yet the funniest whistling on the release with occasional orchestrations. Indeed, due to it the track does have inner impetus to evolve into a full-fledged one. In a word, it is a cute issue in the discography of MiMi Records.   

Smut – Conveniently Broken (2015)




  • Alternative rock 
  • Indie rock 
  • Shitgaze 
  • Noise rock 
  • Cover 
  • Lo-fi 
  • Psych-rock 
  • Garage rock


Comment: Smut is a combo/trio from Miami, Florida, The United States Of America, whose sound is fraught with pointed guitar noises, diffuse drumming and husky female-led vocals yet preserving a welcome laid-back attitude during this 14-minute session. Stylistically it comes out of the tradition of the so-called shitgaze genre, which powerfully appeared approximately 10 years ago. However, it is a logical point in the tradition of noise and garage rock. One song from a bunch of 5 compositions is By Tomorrow being a cover of the cult compatriots Black Tambourine. I like the trio’s attitude of being no hurry to reach one end point followed by another. Just relax and keep up going in that pace. Ultimately the issue sounds like a long, integrated track altogether. The issue is a follow-up to Matter That Soils or Blackens (2014).
