IRRESISTIBLE FORCE Its Tomorrow Already

With song titles like Nepalese Bliss and rsh Dances, we can expect something a little ambient. The title track is outrageously long and melancholy, like watching children on a merry-go-round. If unexpected it could lead to the expectation of something happening. The rest of the record is sparse, lovely and similarly mobile like. Bursts of synth wash over you like a breezy Mediterranean afternoon, kites fly, a voice on a radio in a language you can't understand makes it all a little more foreign. Knowing only this one life, a little envy haunts you as you gaze down at the lovers talking on the beach, but the feeling turns reassuring, the rhythm is right. Oh my it's getting late, I better get back to the hotel. Excellent The 'The' sample in Nepalese Bliss, those Ninja folks never do you wrong.
