- Words: T. Vittles
- Label: WMF
Sentimental feels like the soundtrack to a '60s movie about the distant future, but it's not retro. Rather, Nikakoi's shiny robot melodies and lilting chimes give the entire record a sense of optimism and bittersweet nostalgia at the same time, while twittering machined beats insinuate plots involving personified computers. It's a rather lovely record, full of mysterious atmospheres that will please fans of the Aphex Twin's Selected Ambient Works 2. Perfect for listening to late, late at night, or very early in the morning.
