Yanakoto Sotto Mute are widely considered by the Western fandom to have put out one of the best albums of 2017 in “BUBBLE”. High praise indeed, but less mentioned is the release that had the unenviable task of following it up. “STAMP EP” was the next step in Yanamute’s development and the improvements in the year or so since many of “BUBBLE”‘s songs were recorded and released are very apparent. They stick much more closely to the Rock genre this time which really allowed them to refine a lot of things, and the vocals that were already great seem to have somehow improved even more too. “Tenki Ame to Sekai no Parade” is probably one of the most under-appreciated songs from 2017 too.
