Dominik Sonders The unique sound design, audio fidelity and sheer innovative spirit on this EP are nothing short of groundbreaking. You need to hear it to believe it. Laconic and iconoclastic at the same time, Ibunshi’s expertly crafted minimalism is an experience like no other. All five tracks capture a sense of existential darkness that few artists have managed to create. They also help remind me how far I still have to go as an aspiring producer. Truly impressive. Favorite track: Akazuno.

Ambient, quiet, and minimal are the backdrops to Ibunshi's sharply compressed percussion. Bass lines, kicks drums, and inharmonic melodies are hard to distinguish as one or the other. Rhythms subtly change sometimes shifting out of tempo or to different time signatures. Ibunshi's sound is defining and a key part of Pinecone Moonshine.

The last track moves away from the ambient scapes to a slower tempo piece with double bass and Rhodes feeling like a live jazz trio.

Free jazz, early electronics, blues, and funk are noticeable influences in several of the pieces. ... more
