Miko: Chandelier

AJ Ramirez

The second album by this Japanese singer-songwriter is as bright and finely-crafted as the object which gives the record its name.

From the moment the first track, "Sea House", plays, it's readily apparent that Miko's Chandelier is one lovely, radiant collection of music truly worthy of being described with the word "beautiful". Featuring the performer also known as Rie Mitsutake exhaling heavenly melodies as a birdlike sound-loop calls behind her voice and gentle acoustic guitar playing, the Japanese singer-songwriter's second album delivers several fetching variations on the album's basic gentle-folk aesthetic. Even the sound of her fingers sliding across her guitar frets is as gorgeous as her voice and the chiming percussion in the background. As bright and finely-crafted as the object which gives the album its name, Chandelier is a brief listen, but one that's alluring enough to warrant an instant replay.
