ハイスイノナサ (haisuinonasa) - 想像と都市の子供 (The Child Of Imagination And City) (2010)
ハイスイノナサ (haisuinonasa) - 街について(About the City) (2009)
I’ve been searching for inspirational bands with keyboardists so it was refreshing to have this band referred to me a few nights ago. I enjoyed the older mini-album more (街について) because I’ve been trying to purge my music players of overly-chill tracks. The younger of the two albums is too post-rock for my personal tastes although I did enjoy the track titled “ensemble 1.” I do plan to try and get my hands on more albums from this band. If you love pianos, you should definitely give this band a listen. I don’t understand the vocals at all, but I don’t think the Japanese singing is distracting from the interesting use of keyboards and drums to create rhythmic textures that help you distinguish one track from the next.

I expected a much more hectic sound from this album, but overall, the album was very solid. There was enough variation between tracks where you could tell the instrumental songs apart, but at the same time there was a certain sound that defined the band. I am definitely keeping this album in my personal collection of music I keep in my pocket. I have to admit right now that I only got this album because I couldn’t figure out how to get my hands on their latest album that was released within the last couple weeks.
