LOVER ALBUMMay 22, 2007
When I first heard that the next clammbon album was going to be comprised of covers, I was a little disappointed. I had been hoping for some new original material. But I faithfully ordered it and waited for it to arrive. When I started listening to it, it was the middle of summer 2006 and I had just moved to a new apartment closer to work, so I was having a couple of nice walks through the city every day.
So, this album will always summon up images of summer in Seattle. It turned out to be nearly as satisfying as a real new clammbon album; some of the songs like “Summer Nude” by Magokoro Brothers and “Kahlua Milk” by Okamura Yasuyuki have really stuck with me strongly. And so far, the album has helped me discover at least one excellent band, Magokoro Brothers, to listen to.
Also, you can’t beat that album art. :D
