Onna-Kodomo's ethereal and gentle creations are of a delicate beauty. For an entire month I used this disc as the embarking point into a night of serene dreams. The combination of bass, violin and the angelic voice of Yuko Hasegawa is entrancing. In these sounds I can see the alluring arm of a bamboo forest dryad. The backbone of deep, bass sounds is enhanced with violin or guitar to pin down a wide spectrum of sound with an intriguingly empty middle. This should be easily appreciable by fans of both darkwave noir musings and sublime ambient soundscapes.
