Asura – Asura II
Shimmer, sparkle, shine… Haze. And a swan looks knowing, turns its head, wasn’t staring. And the updates keep coming, bus stopping light aching out the corners, arrowhand always in the eddy from 4 till 7, swirling out, questioning. Till the solitary star, shaking, steady… and fade out. Behind the clouds. So fresh, so pure, like water, like wind, like breath of tree and growth of breath. And starout again. Cloud smiles, fondly, and move on, frantically. Then down.
I look down… At my feet. Steady. On the ground. And your feet too.
There’s so much light and loudness to this january 2010 album of Asura – like a peaceful view from a peaceful pavement; to the scurry of restless traffic jerking past the green. But the scurry is so fun to watch.
It makes me all a jolly quiver. Would recommend this album to anyone. Especially for the particular fans of Baths, Teebs, Dosh, Shigeto, Ducktails, Com Truise, that kind of thing; for Baths fans who came to appreciate Cerulean in hindsight with a Geotic perspective.
