ピクニック・ディスコ – コミュニケーション

コミュニケーション is a 2014 abum by ピクニック・ディスコ that was both self-released and as a CD-R on il where (though now out of print I think, link takes me to a basically blank page). ピクニック・ディスコ are a blend of j-pop, disco, synth pop, rock, and various electronica genres (mostly house).

I really like this duo and this is a great release from them. They take elements from lots of genres in their music. Like the opener “芸術的に美味い寿司が食いたい” is heavily disco influenced, then has those high pitched 90s gangsta rap synths here and there, then with synth bass line, drum machines, and spoken vocals throughout. The vocals on this album range from more spoken vocals to actual singing. The addition of the house element sounds nice with the disco and j-pop elements. The rock element is mostly in guitar that shows up in the tracks, but there is a full-on rock track on here too. Drum machines are used a lot too which give it a distinct sound.
