Casino Versus Japan's classic evocation of Summer (Hawaii by way of headphones on an American Midwestern lawn chair in the sun) is back on vinyl via the temporarily resurrected Wobblyhead label. Droning and humming synths like baritone cicadas, passing planes and distant lawnmowers drift across bubbly, reverberating melodies and subtly shifting walking pace rhythms. Short interludes of (faux?) slack key guitar, tinkly piano or burbling synth billow in a cavernous echo chamber like lazy dreams. Now in a sturdy gatefold sleeve, the new cut is not as loud as the City Center Offices issue, but sounds rich and clear. My copy had a little unwanted groove noise at the end of side A, but overall the pressing sounds excellent. Obviously essential for fans, this vinyl reissue of "Go Hawaii" might also be a welcome opportunity to discover an electronic artist with the rare, instantly recognizable and patented sound of his own.
