For lovers of the
weepiest reaches of musical melancholia, Damon & Naomi are like
prized penmen, true troubadours expressing timeless (and timely)
thoughts. Their musical vehicle embraces the concept of "beautiful"
sound, nestling sweet sounds close to a collective artistic bosom. On
their fourth longplaying outing, Krukowski & Yang up the ante on
acoustic opulence by collaborating with the core trio from Japanese
acid-folk hippies Ghost: guitarist Michio Kurihara, keyboardist Kazuo
Ogino and iconoclastic icon Masaki Batoh. Literally titled, With
Ghost is a shimmering set of utterly gorgeous songs, nine numbers
shining with warmth like newly blown glass.
