Comment: Japanese Large is a Phoenix, US-based project which is headed by Jon Partelow, the group`s initial singer who chooses mates to get collaborated for. Superpositioned is produced in liaison with Matt Rickard. There are up seven compositions with a total length of almost 50 minutes. Musically it seems to be influenced by M83 because of drifting instrumentally across tumultuous synthesizer moulded seas and on the other side putting itself into a corner of soothing, down-tempo and smooth synth pop/chill out alike compartments. Furthermore, the latter element is frequently adorned with emotive vignettes and motif progressions being ever characteristic to some examples of the French electronic pop (for instance, Air). On the other side, by enjoying those tiny, wondrous hypnagogic progressions in some tracks (for instance, Bbl Thumps) the result comes quite close to an early period Ducktails being then closely related to such terms as “glo-fi”, “hypnagogic pop”, “dreamwave”. Thirdly, partelow and Rickard`s work does have much similarity with Tame Impala`s brand new album Currents though Superositioned is more exuberant and accomplished and actually was issued earlier. It could be said the concept is rounded and well-circled because the premises already foreseeable after listening to some tracks only and the outputs used to provide cohesive connection between one another. On the whole, it is a superb work.
