Greengate is a one-half Irish and one-half Japanese project, turning out endlessly happy electronic pop -- on Metaphysical Vibration, the band adds a dense, droney feel to their childlike Japanese pop influence, turning out a series of songs that alternates between chirpy fun and dreamy gorgeousness. Even underneath layers and layers of blippy programming and synth work, the duo's sense of melodicism always asserts itself, keeping things fresh from track to track. Metaphysical Vibration doesn't do a whole lot to present itself as a masterpiece, but it's a thoroughly satisfying record in a fresh and worthwhile genre.
