5.0 classicLondonB | February 4th 14

I've been listening to this record for weeks and I can't get enough. Fishmans' music is hard to come by outside of Japan, but it's worth the search!

Uchuu Nippon Setagaya, consisting of just 8 lengthy songs, carries strong Dub/Jazz overtones laced with mellow guitars, occasional swirling strings, and light electronics. Singer Shinji Sato's vocals have a soft, high-pitched, quirky quality which some may find off-putting, though one can't argue their distinctiveness. Admittedly I haven't really paid much attention to the lyrics as my Japanese isn't too great, but the music itself stands as some of the best 90s alt rock/dream pop to come out of the far east in my humble opinion. If you're looking for for music to just relax and chill out, this album is highly recommended!

5.0 classicAnimalsAsSummit | May 2nd 19

One of the hardest 5s of my life and I mean that. This is what I always wanted from indie pop. The ability to be quirky but stay entirely refined and gorgeous is a balancing act that most artists completely fail at.... Fishmans succeeded with flying colors.
