"It's not a question of if. It's just a question of when." That old adage for something imminent to happen has been demonstrated worldwide over the ages and will continue to be so as long as we have one. The latest proof positive is Tokyo's Farida's Caf? as their question of when has been answered with a firm now.'

After forming in 1997, three releases and a slew of tours with varied results reflective of their earlier searching ways, Farida's Cafe have now found their feet and a unifying skin as they comfortably hit their stride in their latest 'Abuzeek.' Coalescing their skills and direction, Rei (vocals, guitar), Andre (guitar, vocals), Masa (bass, vocals) and Hiro (drums) show a growing maturity in their building confidence and craftsmanship. Seen live it's most apparent, yet also be foreseen with the simple under your skin rumbling opener "Breathe." Almost a clean snapshot of a collective that is at last standing tall in their direction, it leads smoothly into the reassuring sunny, yet dark stroll "Low" that brings back vestiges of the lovely dichotomy forged by The Smiths in music and lyrics with a dabble of The The in there that begs for you to roll down the windows in a road trip that sprawls into the sole track in Japanese that baths in Andre's big, swathing riffs.

Rei's vocals soar in joyful liberation in "Crossroads" as it shuffles about. You can hear Andy Rourke influences on bass alongside Mike Joyce's as this 25-minute in total cleanly finishes into the all-instrumental title track that unfurls effortlessly in its dual guitar-speared glory, showing all four lost in the wondrous rise and fall of a resonant fire and brimstone within each. "Pull Me Out" lumbers ahead lazily amidst its shared Japanese and English vocals that hypnotize in its quiet calling. "Song And Dance" closes FC's mini-album jaunting about in its sunny pop, ushering autumn's arrival.
