J-Christmas Vibes (5) – Lullatone ‘how to tie a scarf’

‘Pajama-pop’ duo Lullatone makes some of the most innocent and genteel music with the most simple of musical ideas. ‘how to tie a scarf’ illuminates a wistful sonic air using a single music box-like celeste playing lyrical arpeggios that evoke dainty snowflakes falling with grace, while subtle crackling in the distant stereo field capture a sense of timelessness and fine inflections in pitch glimmer a dreamy atmosphere. Find out more about Lullatone in my blog post here, and listen to more of their songs here.
