cuushe Butterfly Case (CD, £17.50)label: Flau
'Butterfly Case' is Cuushe's breathtaking 2nd full length album, coming four years after her beautiful debut 'Red Rocket Telepathy' and the subsequent 'Girl You Know That I Am Here But The Dream' EP. While Cuushe's debut album put more focus on field recordings and found sounds, in 'Butterfly Case', you can hear her moving graciously from her dreams into reality, expressing herself with delicate analogue tape, distorted synths, drum machines, looped guitars and her signature feathery vocals. These astonishing new songs allow us see a new vision, an imagination from Cuushe that we've never seen before. The Balearic guitar-house track 'I Love You', which is one of the most popular tracks from the album, has already been receiving raving reviews from the press both in Japan and overseas, while the ambient-ish R&B take in 'Hanabi' is reminiscent of Cocteau Twins and early 4AD meet soul music. A new exciting dimension in dream pop music!
