New There Is A Fox: Sleep Well

Sleep Well is a fragile collection, the sort of song cycle built on small details from seemingly uneventful occurrences (“Raincoat,” “Morning Clouds,” “Sunday”) but finding beauty in it all regardless of how insignificant it seems. This is how There Is A Fox, based in Kyoto and one of the minds behind Dear Ear Records out of that city, has operated for the most part, and his latest on Tanukineiri Records continues in that fine tradition. The music gets slightly shimmery and There Is A Fox sings closely to the ear, creating an intimate atmosphere. “Sunday” mixes in the sound of rain falling over dreamy synth surges, adding a touch of reality to what sounds otherwise like a midday fantasy. All five songs here strike the right balance between mental escape and visions of the world around them. Get it here.
