asobi seksu: rewolf

Asobi Seksu’s recently released Rewolf totally made up for my disappointment in Hush. Vocalist Yuki Chikudate and guitarist James Hanna took on a completely different direction in Rewolf—the multi-layers/textures and My Bloody Valentine-influenced noise-pop is gone; instead, everything on the new record is strip down acoustic arrangements. Rewolf features 10 extremely gorgeous re-imaginations from Asobi Seksu’s previous releases, including my personal favourites, "New Years" and "Thursday" (...too bad The Crystals cover is missing.) Old fans will be pleasantly surprised by the unusual arrangements while non-fans will be delighted by Chikudate’s beautiful vocal!
