Album Review: Windswept Adan by Ichiko Aoba

Excellent, Based on 2 Critics

Pitchfork - 80
Based on rating 8.0/10

Ichiko Aoba's greatest strength is her ability to create pockets of intimacy. The Japanese singer-songwriter's breathy vocals and placid guitar playing, often the only sounds you'd hear on her records, create a hypnotizing shroud that makes you feel like she's performing for you alone. Aoba has been building a following in Japan since her 2010 debut Kamisori Otome--released when she was only 19 years old--but 2018's qp was Aoba's first small breakthrough; it connected her with listeners abroad and cracked Rate Your Music's top rated albums of the year.
