JAPANCAKES Down the Elements CD (Darla)

JAPANCAKES Loveless CD (Darla)
"An honest, loving interpretation of MBV's album that, at best, holds it's own against the classic and even perhaps offers some new insights into the eleven songs and, at worst, is relatively harmless and nowhere near as offensive as skeptical MBV fanboys might think (or hope). –OPUSZINE
JAPANCAKES Giving Machines CD (Darla)
"...a roots-inspired, beautifully crafted pop instrumental record that extracts feelings and emotions better than that of most "intimate" singer-songwriters." – IN MUSIC WE TRUST
