Kenshi Yonezu is a Japanese singer-songwriter who practically rose to fame via the Vocaloid-way (He’s a producer under the name Hachi, not a utaite). Still, that doesn’t mean that he can’t sing! And, he’s a great illustrator too with proof being the album cover and the illustration booklet for both this album and Diorama.

Anyway, his voice and the melodies rather unique and catchy. Plus, the lyrics are deep to various degrees.  It’s quite hard to describe this album but I definitely love it. You can check out some of his songs on his YouTube channel or you can search for them on Nico Nico Douga as well~ Have a look at his official site too if you’re up to it; just remember that it’s in Japanese!
