Boomkat Product Review:
Following on from their debut on Time Lag, Italian combo Painting Petals On Planet Ghost return with an album themed around the works of 20th century Japanese poet Yosano Akiko. Vocalist Romona Ponzini tackles the lyrics in the Japanese language, sounding rather like Christina Carter for her trouble on 'Akatsuki No Hoshi', which isn't too far removed from the more melodically-inclined works of Charalambides. Ponzini's vocal is absolutely integral to the creative success of this trio, casting vaporous choral passages above 'Honoo No Ko' and bringing a fragile sense of order to the otherwise quite chaotic 'Kari' and its freetime, detuned guitar meditations. Possibly the most beautiful of all these compositions is 'Yume No Hanashi', a plume of drone whose midsection sounds as if someone plucked a particularly luscious nanosecond from Vashti Bunyan's 1971 debut album and stretched it seamlessly across several minutes. As experimental, drone-folk groups go, Painting Petals On Planet Ghost have the potential to be right up there with the very best, and deserve a place in the record collection of anyone whose previously been under the spell of Fursaxa, Soccer Committee and the aforementioned Charalambides.
