"Like broken and incomplete memories of dreams, Shuta Hasunuma's compositions string together erratic electronic textures and field recordings from the streets and countryside of Japan with emotive guitar and piano melodies. Throughout the album, he does an amazing job of using simple, sometimes child-like melodies to evoke a feeling of melancholy that's both cinematic and intimate. In the end we get something akin to an audio diary, shifting from deeply moody with tracks like 'Prelude' and 'Double Navaho' to playful and whimsical on tracks like 'Long Road Home' and 'Eurikago Afternoon.'"
