Miki Miyoshi – 10th Region 12″ – Sovereign State

27141107_10215778372109103_577673689_o.1The opening salvo is effortlessly streamlined, reminiscent of Olaf Dettinger, Jan Jelinek, or early SND. “Doodle” sets the tone for this elegant five-track EP. Miki Miyoshi returns to Sovereign State for a second release, bringing the label back into action after the first two releases hit back in 2016.

After Doodle, the playful Tanuki Suit uses a similar tonal palette but to somewhat heavier effect, with a halting beat faltering under undulating synths. On the flip side, “Green Something” ups the pace to the 140 BPM range with swirling, psychedelic waves of melody and a light breakbeat rhythm, before winding down back down again on “Scanner,” and then spacing out completely with the ambient musings of Automated Poem. It’s an introverted, introspective release that emphasizes synthetic atmosphere more than percussion & field recordings as compared with Miyoshi’s previous 12″.
