trans: Yamashita Tatsurō - Merry-Go-Round
this is probably the limit of that "80s" sound that i can handle. too many generic yamaha sounds in that era for my liking. this one kinda sounds like something off Change's Miracles; perhaps it's the pad sounds. kinda reminds me of Grandlife too.
turns out if you slow this down and stir in a fuck tonne of compression (metric, not imperial), you end up with a chillwave track by マクロスMACROSS 82-99.
also, Yamashita's Ride on Time album is pretty ace too, though more acoustic guitar jazzy stuff, compared to this 80s cheese.
