New LLLL: Chains “Phase 3: Reflect”

The latest installment in LLLL’s Chains series finds the Tokyo project in a softer, more melancholic mood. Not to be too obvious, but it’s right there in the title — “Phase 3: Reflect”, and the accompanying three songs aim for a head space looking back, without any of the harder thumping sounds that popped up on earlier installments of this run. We’ve already written about “Slowly We Come,” this release’s centerpiece, and it is bookended by the slowly burbling wonderment of opener “Destination” and the fluttery dance-pop of “Mahou.” Most telling, this phase only features the original LLLL set of contributors…no guests, but rather a return of sorts to the sound that made them stand out in the first place. Get it here, or listen below.
