Eiko Ishibashi's delicate Japanese pop has both depth and a light touch, writes Kitty Empire. Many in the west will come to this album through its association with Jim O'Rourke, Chicago-born, now Tokyo-based arch-collaborator with artists as diverse as Joanna Newsom, Wilco and Sonic Youth. Singer-songwriter Eiko Ishibashi is in his band (and he is in hers), and this record bears many O'Rourke hallmarks: a loose jazz feel, plenty of space between the guitars, flutes and vibraphones, a commitment to prettiness, and no great sense of its own difficulty, despite coming out of the international improv scene.
Eiko is a singer/songwriter, producer and session musician, focused on piano, but adept on drums, flute and vibraphone as well. Since 2006, she has released four pop albums and a solo piano album, all of which have been highly rated by the Japanese press. She plays at least a hundred gigs a year, including big Rock festivals and European tours with an understanding of band dynamics developed through her many live shows and recordings, Eiko's delicate, precise compositions are arranged with a s Prog-Pop sound. 2013 album, the first . release of any kind from the Japanese artist. Eiko is a singer/songwriter, producer and session musician, focused on piano, but adept on drums, flute and vibraphone as well.
