I apologize if I'm offending any Kosemura-die-hards, but I tend to be a bit critical (both in a positive manner and negative). So, as I said I'm really digging Grassland, right now, but as soon as I heard "Over the Horizon" I sort of grimaced. Particularly, the drum kit is the type of cheesy, boring pop-music stuff that I think is kinda gross. no?
Also, Some of his music sounds a bit like Keith Kenniff, the man behind Goldmund, Helios, Mint Julep... I've heard Kenniff has received positive review in Japan. and yes, I really like Kenniff :)
I am listening to the album Grassland via grooveshark.com. Admittedly, I am a bit worried that Kosemura's music is a bit too poppy/kitschy/simplistic. But overall I am really enjoying his music! I LOVE the soft textures he utilizes in his music!! Check out the song "Light" to pick up on what I'm talking about. The synths he uses are a perfect pick, I think they are a bit colder sounding.. probably because they sound a bit metallic, like vibraphones. And the light drum-kit sounds are a nice addition. But I really like the repeating white noises that fade over each measure. A very agreeable tune overall.
