Makunouchi Bento is a Romanian duo who used to exploit film noir-esque seeds to fuse them into austere, barely discernible chamber music and electro-acoustic soundscapes. Inspite of these “suspicious” presuppositions the listener can perceive some weird kind of easiness at it. Although the album generally is very good on its own, the highly epic Jubokko jumps out as the outstanding track on it. By the way, the friends of MB had covered these pieces being available as the issue at Bandcamp. However, the original track seem to be better, though. And that’s ok.
