My Love For You Is A Cheap Pop Song is a lo-fi tender missive composed with two hands on a small casio keyboard turned a big electro pop affair in basements and home-studios, a rainbow-like spectrum of desires, moods and tempos, polished in laptops and tape-delay and feeding on all periods , from the 60's to the future. And it contains marvels : restless poppy house music ("Danse Music"), self-assembly j-pop ("Cheap Pop Song", "Nasty Boy" ), distorted echoes of the 80s ( "Satellite Song", "I Know What Boys Like", "Vodka "), super emotional ballads ("Earth", "Piano Song "), or sixties delicacies ("Triangle", "Welson"). No doubt, Kumisolo's universe is as large as her heroes', Cornelius or Stereolab.
Most of all, Kumi tells us (and in all languages, English, French and Japanese) about Love from all angles, and through many more shades of grey than a E-major chord can offer: you can dance to it intoxicated in nerdy parties where people talk about music, lose yourself in the labyrinths of infidelity, express your love while floating in the air in a space station, love too much, care too much, doubt too much - in any case, My Love For You Is A Cheap Pop Song is as dense as true love stories, experienced in real-time, and displays almost as many colors as life itself.
