Wanted to put up a quick post about an album I’ve somehow never talked about on my blog that deserves a ton of attention. This is Kidsuke, a great glitchy electronic project from Kidkanevil & Daisuke Tanabe. I discovered it at the tail end of 2012. Still an album I return to regularly.
Every sound here is micro-sized, so to make up for lost space, the two pack in as many sounds as coherently possible. Lots of chimes, tight drums, high-pitched computer squeaks, etc. Not a lot of reverb on here. Occasionally there’s some powerful bass, but nothing that gets your face. It’s just a heavy presence.
It has a weird nostalgic feeling to it as well, like you’re seeing the world from the eyes of a child exploring a forest. This feeling is helped along by the numerous childish vocal samples littered through the album, acting as a central motif to move the album from point A to B.
I’ll let you listen to it and enjoy – and I really do hope you enjoy it. Not many people I know know of this album, so I need someone to talk with about it!
