iinternett Beautiful, I remember my first time hearing this was at my school library sitting alone spacing out to this album the morning it dropped. I couldn't afford it then, but I'm proud to finally own this masterpiece. Now it's 2020 and it's the same relaxing thematic experience, but in a good way! An adventurous album all the way through, thank you James. Favorite track: Arashiyama Station.

Devon ("Enlight") I don't generally like quiet reflective albums. I've heard so much yet felt so little. I prefer loud albums that I can blast away my thoughts and dance to.

I don't know how, but HCMJ won me over on this one. It's not just another uninspired vaporgazeshoewave bandcamp album of field audio with some synth layers overlayed, there's hypnotizing repetition and variety. It's indescribable why this one stands out to me personally, but it does and I'm glad I found something outside my comfort genres. Favorite track: Kyoto Romance.

suchamazingdoge I love this album because its really bittersweet. It feels like you're going on a plane that's about to leave, and you don't know where you're going or what you're going to do there. Favorite track: Sky Cafe (의미).

Spontamar This is an amazingly immersive journey that feels like it never ends but you don't want it to.
It takes you to either familiar and foreign places and instills a strong feeling of melancholy and longing for a person, but it also becomes a cathartic take on loving life itself.
Highly recommended for anyone who wants to experience aural bliss and feel like they've learned a valuable lesson along the way. Favorite track: 浅間山.

about

“Nobody reflects ourselves back at us in a sea of strangers. Who am I when I’m alone? A human on this earth, facing the world as an empty vessel - experiencing every moment as it happens. In the immediacy of the present, who will I become? Sometimes a small inconvenience or arbitrary occurrence starts a chain of events that forever changes the course of your life. It’s impossible to know when these moments will come, so I decided to savor it all.”

An album presented in two parts:
一期一会 (One meeting, one chance)
바로 여기 지금 이순간 (Right now, here, now, this moment)
