New Astraltable: “Gigantic Lie”

Geez, hope Astraltable is doing OK. It has been awhile since the Kobe producer has shared any new music, and his return is called “Gigantic Lie,” and it is tagged “heartbreak.” Yikes. “Gigantic Lie” takes the jittery, sliced-up-vocals approach favored by indie-level (and up) producers across Japan and aims for melancholy over madness. Astraltable doesn’t pack every second of the song tight, instead allowing plenty of space. That enables the echoey vocal samples to really sell their pain. Listen above.
