The new album by Akiko Kiyama, consisting of 2 vinyl records, has become the long-awaited debut for Nervmusic Records, to at once fully demonstrate the musical philosophy and vector of the label. Deviation is not just a random selection of tunes, but a whole theatre act, made of sound patterns and melodies, a fantastic journey into a subspace of inner images and memories. The story of ‘Deviation’ begins with ‘My Day and Erasers Talk’ a classical show for Akiko; with deep and enveloped base; ideally accurate percussions on the trippy background of strings covered with the fog of delays and reverbs. Straight after that appears ‘Gabriel’ – a touching minimalistic allegory on tango with the shivering fans of shakers and the polyphonic accords of an invisible piano. The second record plate includes ‘Nothing’s Left Besides Iron And Chef’ – a bouncing construction of ragged rhythms and crunchy hi-hats. It is also an interpretation of the track ‘You Are Pinocchio’, which was released on Nervmusic Records previously with the single ‘If I Had a Pair Shoes’ powered by such remixers as Benjamin Fehr, AlkaRex, Laurine Frost and Alexkid. ‘Go For A Walk’ concludes the first vinyl record. The genre classification of ‘Der Wald Erzählt Geschichte’ and ‘Whereabouts’, from the second vinyl, are not to be described. But if you have a strong desire
to do so, then you could consider it as a mixture of trip-rock and click’and’cuts. .
