"Wave" is just sublime. Rolling, forceful but unintrusive beats set an energetic pace while swirling pads mimic the motion of underwater currents and seem to fold like crashing tides. Coupled with its heavenly vocals, "Wave" holds the fine balance between melancholy and hope with finesse. I just don't lose my interest in this track and will keep coming back for more.

"Jupiters Field" holds a punchier rhythm and bassline while still offering the pure depth charge we're all looking for from this sort of release. Makoto throws all sorts at us in this climax of a song in many layers of chimes, strings and instruments I can't even create a mental image for! Never does it feel overcrowded or overworked, this one rolls through flawlessly. If it doesn't send you off exploring outer space in your imagination, I'd be very surprised. DEEP.

10/10 release. Powerful music. Thanks, Makoto.
