Review :: Shigeto :: Lineage EP

I've not dug into the roots of Ghostly International, but a quick look at their roster (both past and present) proves an aesthetic that has a lock down on a certain corner of my collection, with artists like School of Seven Bells, Com Truise, and Loscil, to name a few. Shigeto (real name Zach Saginaw) has been releasing material on the Ann Arbor-based label for a few years, and he continues to deliver his broken-down jazz electronics with the Lineage EP, released last week. Infinitely repeatable comes to mind - a varied but fluid meditation that never outstays its welcome. A taut mix of electric piano, chimes, harps and found sounds tethered to a shape-shifting rhythm section makes a shitty gray day completely tolerable.

Buy the damn thing, but save me a copy.
