Kashiwa Daisuke – 5 Dec.

Gone are the modern classical and organic song structures of Program Music 1. So what comes next for a seemingly accomplished modern composer of reveered underground success? Daisuke has opted for the electronic side of the coin, and on this, his third full length he brings a contrast of sonic temptation for the music geek.

The album is, save from piano, an exhibition in electronic and glitch with heavy overtones and erratic beats. Often Daisuke weilds an assault of guitar solos – you’d think he’d spent his time away from the studio listening to nothing but Omar Rodriguez Lopez. Despite this his solos are harsh but well placed to display his craft as he balances out this beat laden almost glitch-core album with some beautiful pieces of manipulated piano-tronica sounding tracks.

Overall it is a departure from what we are familiar from Daisuke, but it marks a turning point for him and one that is well timed to bring him into a new phase of his already illustrious discography.
