"Seven tracks of twisted enka blues, from the immortal Kan Mikami, Japan's king of the surrealist aside and situationist duckwalk. These latest seven missives from Mikami's febrile imagination sketch out a concern with the passing of time, with the inexorable processes of aging, and the losses and gains of Japan's modernity. Present and correct are the master's unique sense of expanding and contracting rhythm, his trademark jaggedly beautiful riffing, and that glorious, honeyed howl of a voice. Making a special guest appearance this time round is Korean folk singer Kim Doo Soo, contributing spectral blues harp on one track. Seven tracks, 32 minutes. Booklet includes lyrics in English and Japanese." -- Alan Cummings
