Waking Hours (Warm Records)

By: Alex Steininger

From poignant and tender to rich and lush, Japancakes' Waking Hours is a roots-inspired, beautifully crafted pop instrumental record that extracts feelings and emotions better than that of most "intimate" singer-songwriters. Using no words to say more, Japancakes creates a universal soundtrack to one's life, an achingly beautiful record that will appeal to you during moments of sheer bliss and downright despair. The songs latch on to you and become the songs you relate to those moments. Whether it's the warmness of a gorgeous summer evening or the gray, coldness of an isolated winter morning, Japancakes has managed to put it to music, providing you plenty of hours of enjoyment as you celebrate and cry while this record embraces and comforts you. I'll give it an A-.
