Shinamo Moki "Heliotrope"
Japanese outfit Shinamo Moki this week released its You Couldn't Be More Distant EP via the Mush label. Pulled from the six-track effort is "Heliotrope," a wobbly production full of slippery melodies, hand-played acoustic instrumentation, and bits of live percussion. Throughout the course of its three-plus-minute run, "Heliotrope" can sound as if it is just about to fall of course—its array of elements loosely fitting together atop stomping kicks and snares—but its creators manage to hold everything together, resulting in a track that is, in fact, made more enticing by its natural sway. The rest of Shinamo Moki's new You Couldn't Be More Distant EP can be streamed after the jump.
