Jikan Ga Nai - "Plenty Time" (BS022 - 2013)
An inscrutable and fascinating record.
[A Closer Listen]
Another quality release from Bearsuit ...very enjoyable and not that easy to categorise, but it certainly nods it’s head to the blissful but slightly melancholy sounds of Tortoise while maintaining its own identity as outsider pop.
Nono and Cosentino challenge the listener to pay attention. Those who do will be richly rewarded.
[It’s Psychedelic Baby]
Elements of Broadcast, Stereolab and Plaid usher in like spectrals to airbrush the canvas, amid the chamber-tronics the knowing influence of Stockhausen permeates the undercurrent.
[The Sunday Experience]
We’ve come to expect bizarre yet quality instrumentals from Bearsuit and this EP is no exception.
[When We Lie Down...] Spooky and futurist vibe. Like a Sherlock Holmes robot crime scene. Great work!
Jikan Ga Nai have contrived a rare work here with this EP. [Soundscape Memoirs]
[Legend Days] An absolutely amazing gem of a track! As if the dreams and nightmares of Matmos are let loose... Bloody delicious cocktail! They should make a James Bond movie especially for this track!
You really have to give this duo a little of your time for the music to unravel its mesmerising and haunting beauty.
Beautiful melodies, arrangement and sound-design.
Song titles such as, “When We Lie Down We Take the Penguin Home”, match the lulling melodies and reveal the mythical mindset of the makers. The talented two-man team tells superior stories to be continued…
[The Shiney Planet Project]
This track [The Man Who Tells The Trains] was chocked full of dark melodic ear sweets. Masterfully made...the little milliseconds between the lows when the bleeps break through - hot lava... [Legend Days] is wonderful....that new melody is chocolate covered gold...
Zombie killin music!
Such a beauty!! ... "Plenty Time" is a fantastic EP! One of my favorite EP's of 2013!!
