Boomkat Product Review:
Sung in Japanese and English 'Car and Freezer' followed Ishibashi's ace "Imitation of Life" in 2014 using the same basic formula, with Jim O'Rourke handling co-production duties. Hugely enjoyable stuff that treads carefully between jazzy improv and progressive pop.
Multi-instrumentalist, electronics whizz and singer-songwriter Eiko Ishibashi called her second Western-friendly prog opus "Car and Freezer" as a reference to her hometown, where "cars and refrigerators were often abandoned and just left lying around." To spark a sense of difference in the sessions, Ishibashi added obstacles to her process: whereas on her previous album she went to rehearsals with demo songs already mapped out, here she arrived with nothing. A few days of blank stares turned into a communal experience, where each musician - Toshiaki Sudo, Hatano Atsuko, Yamamoto Tatsuhisa and O’Rourke - brought forward their own skillset.
