Brokenspace Wholly Undo All In A Crisp, Crystallizing Coalescence

      "You wanted to know all about me and my hobbies, my favorite foods and my birthday." Classic Cuomo uttered from Pinkerton gives light to the sheer indie-pop perfection of Tokyo's Brokenspace this night. Somehow under the radar, Brokenspace are a trio deserved of international glories reflecting their obvious iconic influences while forging their own savory one for nourishing consumption in birthing their glorious self-titled debut.

Brokenspace      With tour support member/producer Kazunari Yookoo (a.k.a. Velvet-room Recordings) unleashing a sample to lead, You Terada (drums) follows in his resonant anchoring for Yukio Iwahara (vocals, guitar) and Koyo Fukamizu (bass, vocals) into their serendipitously smooth rising chiming concoction "Undo All" on this opening date of their record release tour. As all inside are pulled in gladly from its digging syncopation, they seamlessly transition into the banging, rollicking "Parasite Me." Far from that, these four, alongside all within eat heartily. Following is "Salad Days" enlightening feast on the move that has all digging Yukio's slices and Terada's high-hat fills as Koyo's nods in assurance as the communal digestion is duly underway. Just as a soothing comedown from a most-filling meal shared, "Giants Stride" echoes spiritually in its layered calm. Yet, like a shot of Cuervo, Koyo's vocal lead on the jaunty, stop-start "Bread" has all the fixings dished out, replete with nonsensical frantic callings by Kazunari as he leaps into the crowd upon completion. Brilliant!

Brokenspace      Completion is always the toughest chore for any artist, particularly live, but these four nail it for a utopian feeling of whipped cream and other delights for all. Finishing on the jangling, racing, trailing liberator "Destination," it'll be most interesting to know what will be said of and had by Brokenspace 1 year from now. But if I can help it, all of college radio America and beyond will be begging to know all those aforementioned things in the beginning. Got your song and others shall too. They are here to remind us that you truly can do anything.
