Cinq, the second artist to follow world's end girlfriendon the noblelabel follows their first effort “sketch” with their gentle sound-world which was highly regarded as ‘hand woven brocade of electonic sound' by various culture and club music magazines, and by the music industry. This release is 2 years and 4 months on from the last, and his signature acoustic guitar lyricism which recalls Bill Frisell and Pat Methany mixes with soft electronic sounds. Featuring collaborations with artists he respects such as Kazumi Nikaido on vocals, dj klock on turn tables and programming, Hiroshi Funato on woodbass (FUCHIGAMI TO FUNATO), Takashi Kashikura (toe) on drums, a twisted but comfortable harmony is born from the combination of electronics and instruments to make a beautiful album. The title “day off” indicates not a holiday or vacation, but a regular, un-special off day, and is cinq's effort to create a stimulating album to listen to on such a day.
