Comments Off on Water Gun Water Gun Sky Attack – Let – A Rekapper Review from another Rekapper Site

As I mentioned before I also have a website for mixing and mastering and I have kept some article separate for a while if you want to check out a direct link to the review, you can find it here:

But Water Gun Water Gun Sky Attack ‘s album Let was by far my favorite release of 2013, because it was a strong suit of instrumentation and music writing and production skill showcase of his, and it also really sounds amazing on any medium.

相対性理論 – TOWN AGE – Rekapper Review

相対性理論 – TOWN AGE

One of my favorite J-pop releases from Japan in 2013, sort of the light jpop sound you would expect normally, but it has just the right tasting of everything you could hope for including the instrumentation.  I generally don’t try and go out of my way to listen to artists like Soutaiseiriron but when you factor in crazy but simple artwork along with the music, it just makes it overall perfect.  It comes off as being a bit over cutesy but when you factor in that half of the jpop albums fail to get to that level this group has at least a few feet ahead of others.  Equally one of my favorite works for OP song for an anime was made by the lead singer, Etsuko Yakushimaru (やくしまる えつこ), featured in Arakawa Under the Bridge Opening track Venus to Jesus.  That entire anime was nuts and one of my all time favorite comedies, but that warrants its own post later.
