Boomkat Product Review:
Taking its name from a Japanese word meaning "gentle sunlight", this latest album from Junkboy, the recording alias of Brighton-dwelling brothers Mik and Rich Hanscomb, keeps to its billing, sounding every inch the companion to supine summer afternoons. Introductory track 'Firth' was apparently inspired by a day the brothers spent listening to John Cameron's soundtrack to Kes, something that's very much evident in its lyrical woodwinds and ambling acoustic backing. From this sort of languid intimacy the album shifts towards more assertive ensemble pop (with a little help from members of the Willkommen Collective) as on the excellent West Coast pop worshiping 'Friends (Part 2)' or the windswept orchestrations of 'Stendahl Syndrome'. Other highlights come from the beach-combing pop-folk of 'On The Shore', the psychedelic 'Dr. Rendezvous' (featuring Elizabeth Walling aka Gazelle Twin) and the unforseeably muscular 'Tones X', which gets carried away with the trend for all things kosmische, loping through measure upon measure of phaser abuse, guitar fuzz and scrawling sax.
