【mini-rate】tennyson / different water

released 2019, independent.

Tennyson’s ‘Different Water’ ushers in the springtime with soothing melodies, spellbinding beats and exotic soundscapes reminiscent of Shugo Tokumaru’s eccentricity. Intro track ‘Streamer Nichome’ is glorious, minimalist meets ambient dub in ‘Melonpan’, while ‘Wintersleep’ melds lullaby like vocals with a folk acoustic arrangement that soars like a flock migration. It’s all very comfortable, music perfect for a long train ride across Japan (there’s a lot of J-influence on this EP).

  • Must-Listen : Face the night, Wintersleep, Different water (the vocal tracks shine in between all of the marvelous production, and Face the Night has an absolutely stunning outro.)
  • Skip : Tick tock, Melonpan (those not extended, sparse instrumental may find these tracks boring, everyone else should still give them a shot.)
  • Stream “Different Water” on Bandcamp and Apple Music.
