AEIOU Rec. Kinrisu : Monster Wisp EP -mcdr- (F,2008)**
I loved the sweet drawings of Kinrisu, and her voice sounded attractive too, so I decided to try out her extremely limited mini-cdr release. Then we come to the weird part. While her voice, songs and even an occasional vocal arrangement is the sweet and lovely part of it, every track seems also to have some additional parts of, deliberately or not, confusing, rather distorted sounds (from electric guitar, or what sounds like buzz from a receiver, or from machines), which on its own, with the extremely simple pickings gives on one hand a psychedelic texturing effect of blurring the things, it is also on the edge of making the mix of sweetness of talent through the contra-rhythmical nature that brings them in, disturbing, with an element of anti-musical, as if they hide the other side of innocence with this weirdness, lacking the comfort to make these different structures also harmonious with it, rather likes to push itself away from it, sounding modern with it, in the more often disturbing world. These tiny occasional randomness has its own interesting world, but for the moment lives on a different rhythm, which is weird.
Edition of 50 copies only.
Other description :
"It's impossible to escape the magic of French singer/songwiter princess Kinrisu. It's a bit like Voodoo folk, lost guitar chords, reverb rooms big as inside the whale of Jonah, and equally dark. Small ritornells of loneliness, accompanied by a voice made from glass and sugar, breakable and sweet. As usual with A E I O U releases, this comes in a 3inch DVD box, filled with equally tristesse and laughter, once again a sure shot by this wonderful spanish outlet."
