It’s smack dab in the middle of the rainy season here in Japan, and a particularly wet Saturday last week meant I stayed in and listened to new stuff on Apple Music. Surprise surprise — Suzuki Mamiko of Chelmico released a solo EP, the lovely Deep Green. Hunt that one down if you are in need of chilled-out rap numbers apt for relaxing too (or if you want to really get perspective on Mamiko’s delivery in a slightly less frantic setting). “Blue” is a good sample of what to expect, as it is a jazzy, easy-going number unfolding at just the right speed for a relaxing day. Listen above.
