Tujiko Noriko returns to Editions Mego after a period of relative silence, this time in collaboration with Tyme. (aka Tatsuya Yamada, member of MAS). This album was developed from songs that the duo made once a year at the end and beginning of the new year, for a period of six years. These were sent to friends and people who asked. After six years, there were six tracks and they added five more tracks based on the illustrations of Kimura Toshiko to complete the album. A gaudy take on J-pop, perhaps? These songs are bustling with a weird sense of optimism that's not only fun but a little odd as well. The end and the start of a year, made by thinking of the future, giving it a shiny sheen with just a dash of darkness. GYU is an onomatopoeia of holding something tight, grabbing something. You know you like it, really.
