The song titles on Daily Sound Collection suggest an overview of daily Tokyo life, with tracks like “Walk In a Satellite City” capturing a clear-sky carefree energy and “Slot Machine Weekend” abstracting the idea of a busy arcade or casino. I love that it’s a bright, uplifting, sometimes frantic but sometimes domestic album that is also intricate, thoughtful, and masterfully crafted. The feelings dok-s project elicits are often relegated to incidental or video game music (Katamari Damacy comes to mind), so it’s refreshing to hear in the context of an album on Orange Milk.
