Anata Wa Sukkari Tsukarete Shimai - ‘Sweetness and Light’ (BS008 - 2009)

A bit like imagining some bliss cradled smooching session between godspeed and black heart procession with Leonard Cohen calling briefly by to offer up some trademark tube supplements. Essential of course.
[The Sunday Experience]

Sweetness & Light flows so beautifully there is a real emotional feel to this music. AWSTS make some beautiful and insane music sometimes all at once, they are a diverse bunch of artists that come together here to create a beautiful EP that both pulls on your heart strings and makes interesting new shapes with a wonderful sonic pallet. They will draw you in and demand repeated listens.
[The Sonic Mine Field]

It’s a queasy macabre journey but one which is quite beautiful in its own twisted little way. there are frequent moments of fragile beauty to be treasured from the apparent dissonance and chaos. Overall, it’s another winner from Bearsuit Records who seem to have a never ending supply of wayward geniuses on their roster.
[Leonards’ Lair]

Sweetness And Light is a prime example of deconstructionist pop music that keeps a nice balance between experimentalism and song writing. Highly recommendable!

A 5-track debut release of various lyrical, melodic and rhythmical experiments. …there are incentives that make me want to believe that something truly great can come out of Anata Wa Sukkari Tsukarete Shimai.

It's not every day you'll hear something like the 'Sweetness and Light EP.' An EP that's bursting with experimentalism and yet remains on the right side of listenable.

Anyone who is a fan of the experimental pop genre is sure to enjoy this.
[Musik Reviews]

Haunting and even beautiful. …if you find yourself bored with the traditional music forms of Rock, Pop, and even Jazz, this disc will expose you to some new ideas that might even make their way back into mainstream music.

The fact that something so deliberately uncommercial can survive and even get a release is good to know. The songs themselves are oddities sometimes lo-fi and sometimes bursting with clarity but always with a strange ability to derail themselves without warning…
