Finally, it is here. The much anticipated debut album by the multi-talented Cuushe, “Red Rocket Telepathy”.
Although “nostalgic” may be a word that most would use to describe this wonderful album of Cuushe, but her music is actually deeply rooted into the genre of dream pop….perhaps a much more broken type of dream pop.
Start right from the beginning of the album, the feathery voices of Cuushe float in between the cleverly placed electronics sounds and gracefully sampled noises and field-recordings, carrying out melodies after melodies that are truly sublime and captivating. These beautiful electro-infused dreamscapes may vaguely remind you of cokiyu, tujiko noriko or even Björk, but it is also an undeniable fact that in this album, Cuushe has crafted some of the most uniquely exquisite pop sounds that you can ever find in today’s indie music scene. Also in this album, Cuushe’s delicate lyrics that tell stories about daily life, about you and me, have further infused another layer of sensibility over the cutting-edge music. And to top it off, the magical touches by Yasuhiko Fukuzono (aka aus) in the mixing and treatment, make this album a truly superb listening experience.
