“Tokyo-based musician Hisato Higuchi (樋口寿人) assembles [his music from] pedaling shapes of wraithlike guitar; blasted, genderless vocals; and thin films of digital electronics and fuzz. On guitar he plays blues as oratonical as Loren Mazzacane Connors, moving from chords that sing like guts of pianos through slouched single notes, propping up song forms as nod-out beautiful as anything conceived by Kendra Smith and David Roback.”


“Higuchi’s compositions are centered around electric guitar and soft vocal flourishes that take shape with ease. (…) The guitar work is highly textural and minimal, and the tonal shifts from track to track give an indication of Haguchi’s attention to detail. The playing here is some sort of washed-out, sustained blues that is always spacious and never hurried.”
