Being a big fan of my bloody valentine, I was turned on to Asobi seksu's second album Citrus, which I would fully recommend to any fan of shoegazer type music. I was looking forward to Asobi's third release, and have been pleasantly surprised by their change in direction.

Gone are the noisy guitar feedback and jangly riffs, welcome lush orchestration and atmospheric instrumentation. The sound of this album is much more striped back than Citrus, but this is definitely a case of less is more. The songs are a lot more focused and really make full use of singer Yuki Chikudate's delicately beautiful voice. It may take a couple listens to really appreciate the impressive soundscapes, but it's definitely worth the time as the unusual harmonies and complex melodies really help bring out the best of Yuki's vocal lines, and far from distract from the songs, really complement them. As a whole, Hush is a very organic listen, and the listener is really taken on a journey form start to finish. Stand out tracks Familiar light and Gliss are the albums strongest songs, but the fact that they don't make the rest of the album sound weak in comparison just goes to show the overall quality of the album as a whole. That said I would definitely recommend picking this album and giving it a chance.

Having seen Asobi Seksu play live before the Hush came out and although i appreciated the ringing ears that i had days later i expected more of the same as Citrus, a few outstanding songs such as Thursday and Strawberries and Goodbye and an album that felt more like a mood washing over you but at times too easy to trace the shoegaze lineage (primarily Pink Cloud Tracing Paper sounding exactly like My Bloody Valentine). Thankfully, with Hush I can say that they have moved on, retained the rumbling bass and trebly and effect laden guitars from Citrus and added more recognisable songs, instruments (acoustic guitar synths & various percussive sounds) and the big factor in why this album is my favourite of the year so far is that Yuki's vocals are now way up in the mix and you can hear the lyrics and her voice which at times got buried in the cacophony of certain songs on Citrus. So overall, give this lp a try and enjoy the pop (Familiar Light,Me & Mary) the gaze (Gliss, Meh No Mae) and the tunes (the whole lp other than Layers, a strange choice as a downbeat opener to the lp) that should win over the unconverted!

A RAINBOW OF ASCENDENT COLOURFUL TUNES.THIS TIME THIS SONIC SPACESHIP BROUGHT GEMS SUCH AS: ME & MERY,IN THE SKY,FAMILIAR LIGHT,TRANSPARENCE AND IN A RAINBOW OF ASCENDENT AND MESMERIZING COLOURFUL SONIC SATELLITES . ALL THE ANGELS GATHERED TOGETHER AGAIN AROUND MS.CHUKIDAKE FOR ELEVATING HER VOICE TO THE ETHEREAL INFINITE. LONG LIFE TO THIS STELLAR COMBO.IT WAS SO NICE TO INTERVIEW TO ALL OF THEM IN PERU AND TALK ABOUT MUSIC OF DIFFERENT AGES!
