Kero Kero Bonito - Bonito Generation
Nov 4, 2016

I've been a little disappointed with the amount of releases from the PC Music label this year; there was the fantastic Vroom Vroom EP, but aside from that there's been a shortage of tracks put out from the collective. But Kero Kero Bonito leaves me pretty satisfied with what I have been craving. This production is the same quality as any other release from PC, very bubbly and textured beats with plenty of bass laid over it.
The main issue I have with Bonito Generation is purely the lyrics and vocals. Sarah flips between English and Japanese at the wrong times (sometimes mid sentence) and that makes the record awkward to try to understand, at least for me, someone who is not at all fluent in Japanese. Her lyrics also became to be childish to the point where they became flat out annoying, case in point on the song Graduation. I like how a childish nature is a major theme on bonito Generation, but I think it should have been toned down a little bit lyrically.

fav tracks: Lipslap, Waking Up, Trampoline
least fav tracks: Graduation, Big City
