Cuushe: “I Dreamt about Silence”
Kyoto, Japan’s Cuushe isn’t afraid of a little complexity, even more restraint, and a healthy dose of bliss. Those sensibilities have resulted in a contemplative and astutely nuanced music that fully capitalizes on her soft but controlled alto vocals to shape tracks which are as self-contained as they are sprawling. Turns out that there’s a whole lot to love in the happy dream pop zone between spartan minimalism and chilly effects slabs. “I Dreamt about Silence” embodies that balance as it flows unchallenged through its six minutes. From the opening notes, it’s clear that this track ideal fodder for daydreaming, but the cliffhanger ending only makes it more so. After all, we can’t have you staring out of windows all day.
Girl you know that I am here but the dream is available as a set of three three-inch CDRs from flau and features remixes by Julia Holter, Motion Sickness of Time Travel, Kixnare, Teen Daze, Botany and Blackbird Blackbird
