    Cuushe - Do You Know the Way to Sleep (new song, 2011)
    Cuushe is the latest artist on Flau from the city of Kyoto and her CD 'Red Rocket Telepathy' is a bizarre, unique trip down some blurred vision of "dream-pop" lane, showcasing some gorgeous, lilting ethereal vocals, wonky, woozy synths, slow trippy beats & laptop scrunch. Comparisons to the likes of Seefeel are apt and not without good reason but the layering of bizarre smudged sounds & drunken sounding keys recalls early Boards of Canada and Leila's kaleidoscopic bedroom soul and even such random sound texture/noise-art pioneers such as Kit Clayton. I'm really fascinated by this CD, its appeal crosses the normally static boundaries of shoegaze and should be of interest to fans of progressive electronica as well as fans of the more adventurous extremes of "trip-hop" such as Lamb. A very intriguing and magical listen! -Norman Records (feeling Ecstatic)
    A most unusual and deeply beautiful album from Cuushe and a hard one to describe in many ways as it blends together many different styles whilst retaining its own unique identity. Constructed from mostly electronic components and using vocals as one of the main focuses of the tracks, there’s an instantly appealing depth and warmth to this. Washes of sound and texture play gorgeously over a selection of downbeat, abstract beats~ You can hear elements of shoegaze in some of the more intense works, but generally there’s a low-key sound that works in an almost subconscious way. The female vocals are delivered in such a way that they feel more a part of the instrumentation than anything else, yet there’s a breathiness and easiness to them that gives them clarity at all times. The sense of melancholy is tangible throughout and I found myself going back to particular tracks again and again just to experience their almost aquatic, underwater sound. It’s beautifully put together and something that I believe will give more and more over time – certainly, the more I listen to it the more I get it. Rarely does music like this leave me struggling for words, but this really has, and I reckon that’s an extremely good thing. As I said before, it’s unique and very, very beautiful indeed. You know what to do… - smallfish
    Another delightful abstract pop record from the Flau stable, Red Rocket Telepathy mixes the sensitive, leftfield song formations of Cuushe with the additional mixing and treatments of Yasuhiko Fukozono (of Aus fame) ~ the electronic production is beguiling in itself throughout the tracklist, plumbing depths that might exceed your J-pop expectations. You might even identify a touch of Cocteau Twins coming through during the blurry, weightless vocals and shimmering textures - boomkat
