Real Reol (Music Finds #40)

“Music Finds” is a series with new posts here on the blog each Wednesday. The concept is as follows:
As I listen to a lot of music, I from time to time finds a piece that sticks out, sometimes because it’s quirky, mixed two very unlikely genres, unlikely instruments, or just damn right having an awesome sound. Expect any kind of genre to appear here. These songs is what I will be sharing with you in these posts called “Music Finds”
But really it’s mostly a segment about some of my most played songs!”

Well look at that, I finally found myself a semi-recent new release! The debut-album of REOL dropped on the 19th of October. This character is completely new to me, but it seems that she’s a known face in the Vocaloid-community, doing covers and medleys. But let’s talk more about her solo works, as that’s what this post is about.

I really enjoyed her song 宵々古今, so much that it took me a few listens before I decided to listen through the rest. The song is fast paced, almost arcade like. EDM with dirty lead, sprinkler breakdown, hints of shamisen (?) and flutes. Her voice really fits the electronica genre. There’s something about the voice which I can’t really pinpoint to why I enjoy it so much.
