Guerra sets the pace with layers of makeshift percussion and guitar. Koga also plays ukelele, but it\'s her voice that is the real focal point of the album. Soft and restrained, even when you can\'t understand her words (some of the lyrics are in Japanese), you are hooked from the get-go. Hours later, you find yourself humming her melodies whilte her ghostly incantations are stuck in the back of your mind. This is fractured pop perfection. \"Whiskey Leaves\" will be a welcome addition to fans of Tujiko Noriko, Tenniscoats and the like. Beautiful.
