There is a soft spot in my heart for music whose sole purpose is to take your mind off of the troubles of the world. I find myself drifting into a dream when listening to the debut single from Wabisabi “Always.” This ambient-esque track is beautifully layered with enough elements to keep it interesting and meditative.
According to their Submithub bio Wabisabi “has been 10 years in the making from Tokyo-based multi-instrumentalist/producer Mickey Langley” and his main influences are Red Hot Chili Peppers, John Frusciante, Chic, Daft Punk, Pomo, FKJ, Tom Misch, Dr. Dre, Nujabes, Jack Johnson and HONNE. I’m hoping that “Always” is the direction for Wabisabi. Don’t fix what isn’t broke.
