(Breakfast and after dark concert)

Imagine that you could attend a concert in your bedroom. Just for you.
You're looking at the stars, chilling, dipping your lips in a glass of heady wine, dive in bed and...
...and then it starts.
So tender, so powerfully exciting. It's a guilty pleasure. It's your night. It's Nama Time.

低 い声はジルさんですね。高い声は新しく女性 vocalist を呼んだのですか?クラシックギターやピアノの伴奏に乗せて、二人の声が別々に、ときには一緒に穏やかなメロディを奏でています。どこか寂しげだったり、 アンニュイな気持ちにさせたり、懐かしくさせる曲が散りばめられていますね。David Bowie を彷彿とさせるところもありました。いろいろ楽しめるアルバム作品だと思います。

The artist’s voice is unique. He has his own identity. Sounds sexy at some point and chilly. (read more)

Let it rock

Raw emotions from Belgian artist painting aural graffiti in most proper way: live.
In a decade since their full-length debut, AWAKEN gained a solid foothold in Japan and Vietnam, which might have given the band a whiff of exotica, but when their singer Snowcat addresses his Asian experiences on “Nama Time!” there’s no pop-art tinsel. Instead, (read more)

C’est un album superbe. [...] je trouve la qualite du son particulierement bien lèchée. Les voix, mais aussi la guitare et le piano. Tu t’es entouré de bons musiciens et techniciens, ca s’entend. [...] il y a beaucoup de morceaux qui me bottent déjà énormement, particulierement ceux où la guitare figure en avant plan : « They burn the mountain », « The train is leaving Kokura » et « Beppu Nights » . Le piano (électrique ?) est superbe aussi : l’intro de « Chase around » sonne comme du Steely Dan de la grande époque. Et celle de « Legs & liquor », on dirait du ragtime des années 20. Un morceau que j’aime toujours autant c’est « I know time is passing by… », que je connais depuis longtemps. Mais ta nouvelle version, très intime, est la meilleure de toutes. Sur l’ensemble, on decouvre de très belles trouvailles en matière de melodies, de riffs, d’arrangements, de rythme, etc. Même la couverture me botte : elle fait très Al Stewart période « Orange » avec le manteau afhgan !

En tout cas, pour l'ensemble, beau travail, bel objet, belles coopérations assurément. Son de luxe, en effet !

(RCL, Belgium)

This is your saloon album, the charming crooner wearing a tuxedo, with whisky voice talking to elegant ladies. This is sadly lacking your keyboards arrangements, you seem weary and tired here. I still listen to Tales of Acid ice cream 20 years after I bought it, I doubt Nama Time will still be on my cd player in 2035. I understand that you pride yourself on doing something different each album, but did you really have to go mainstream acoustic? lol Even the most orchestrated stuff like Continental Breakfast sounds lazy.


Cute bowl

Delightful and full of variation!

(Ben, Belgium)

Cute bowl

Between folk, jazz and funk, this album conveys the image of a gracefully ageing rock star singing in a casino at the autumn of his life. My favorite cuts are the duets with the girls, they both complement your dark voice with a perfect touch of brightness.Warm and sexy! I have to emphasize on the musicianship of the pianist on the live side, and the lead guitarists on "Continental Breakfast". The Asian songs make the record more mysterious and seductive. Your best release, with live version far superior to their studio equivalent.

(John R, Germany)

ton nouvel opus est du pur nectar! [...] ça dégage vraiment une belle atmosphère à la fois veloutée et déglinguée, à la Snowcat!
