    Keiji Haino – To Start With, Let’s Remove the Color!

    Keiji Haino - To Start With, Let’s Remove the Color!

    To start with, let’s regard the cover! It’s yet another in a long line of those purdy mini-LP gatefold jackets manufactured in the name of Keiji Haino by PSF. The surprising difference this time is that instead of the usual black, it was printed in a deep battleship grey, with several softly focused black and white portraits of the artist. The actual disc itself offers up well over an hour of haunting, midnight lamp-accompanied music that will effortlessly spritz your soul with the most gentle, glacially hovering solo guitar and vocals, harking back to Haino’s early ’90s glory days, when he released completely stunning alien folk albums like Affection. We’re talking a vast, empty airplane hangar full of clean yet quirky, staggered guitar strums layered with totally somnambulant ghost moaning and more than 10 times your reccommended daily allowance of reverb. Beyond gorgeous.
