Boomkat Product Review:
Brand new debut album on Fat Cat, though a mini album to be exact - concise, equalling eight tracks in just under 30 min's. Chib is japanese female artist Yukiko Chiba who first came to prominence with her track '((o))' on the excellent demo collection 'No Watched No Maps'. The opening track 'Chips' is enough to warrant instant purchase, a devastating melange of beyond lush harmonica, found sound, acoustic guitar, electric piano and samples. Overall refreshing, textures so lovely, evocative and cinematic with a subtle japanese classical undertone. If organica is your bag then you can't go wrong with this. Plus future release warning!!! if you love this then be on the look out for the debut offering from Deaf Center on Type, which takes this sound to an even higher level. Recommended.
