Boomkat Product Review:
‘Brilliant days’ is a lovely album of tender, glitching pop-ambient fuzz from Michiru Aoyama, a Japanese ambient artist residing in the ancient seaside city of Kamakura, south of Tokyo. Listeners susceptible to the lower case romance of the Cotton Goods label or the widescreen washes of Fennesz will find much to admire here
“Michiru Aoyama’s music was hand-chosen by legendary composer Ryuichi Sakamoto in 2006 for a Japanese radio audition and he later flew out to Berlin in 2008 to further his studies in electronic music production. Since then, Michiru has released projects on prominent ambient labels such as Organic Industries, taâlem, and Somehow Recordings.
Michiru Aoyama’s Brilliant Days LP comprises of two long tracks featuring untitled songs that weave in and out of each other. Michiru’s signature guitar harmonics are treated with serene electronic filters and met with youthful under-layers of electronic experimentations and glitchy backdrops.
Brilliant Days leaves the listener to their own narrative of nostalgic youth, love, and memories.”
