Ambient, quiet, and minimal are the backdrops to Ibunshi's sharply compressed percussion. Bass lines, kicks drums, and inharmonic melodies are hard to distinguish as one or the other. Rhythms subtly change sometimes shifting out of tempo or to different time signatures. Ibunshi's sound is defining and a key part of Pinecone Moonshine.
The last track moves away from the ambient scapes to a slower tempo piece with double bass and Rhodes feeling like a live jazz trio.
