A NEW CD - 'WONDERFUL WORLD'


Yuzu's latest album 'Wonderful World', I bought this CD + DVD limited edition from Ebay and it's been a while really since I enjoyed a cd this much.

Yuzu is a Japanese folk-rock duo, and 10 years have passed since their official debut. Time really flies! I became a fan despite not knowing a single word of Japanese then! I love their summery harmonies as well as their thoughtful lyrics (after I found out what they were singing lol). My favourite instument is also the harmonica, which is played super skillfully by Iwasawa Koji who also juggles his guitar at the same time.

For this album I'm glad they returned to their roots of more folkish songs. In the past few years, their music was straying abit from folk and more into commercial pop which was quite disappointing, since I felt the best albums were their pre-debut mini album of street performances (they were originally busking in the streets).

Thanks for coming by my blog.

I really like your Flapper girl and Austere Polka-Dot Cat ACEOs.

I listened to your tracks from the Yuzu album. Great way to start my day.
