Various Artists Wanna Buy a Craprak?
- Words: Selena Hsu
- Label: Carpark
Carpark is releasing some of the loveliest little sounds around these days, all fuchsia beats and electric lavender shadings. This sampler slots thirteen tracks and four videos together as neatly as new, perfect crayons in a box. Greg Davis's "Brocade" is an aptly titled tangle of glowing guitar threads, and the simple guitar and piano of Ogurusu Norihide's "5:00" roll gently, underscored by a soft clicking that resembles tiny kisses. Casino Versus Japan and Kid606 offer up waves of slow-mo reverbed sweetness, and Takagi Masakatsu's gem is all golden glint. Peep also Hrvatski's glorious, shimmering timeshift. What a treat: quietly exuberant songs that pulse with love.
