BRIEF DESCRIPTION: "Night and the weekend" is, as suggested by its title, an album to be listened to in quiet and comfort. More than the pleasure of listening to it and the aparent simplicity of its tracks, West Point suggests
physical comfort to truly enjoy this "Night and the weekend". The slow and patient way in which the various themes evolve (with emphasis on "Whereabouts" and "Ground") warms those that have cuddled up close to
West Point's fireplace.

The joint venture between a more acustic basis and another with firm roots in electronic music is uncompromising, and perhaps because of just that, it is also balanced and complementary. Piano sounds are constant, at times discretely and at other times in prominence, completing and spicying other instruments, whilst the balanced rythmic component softens the dramatic feeling that might have damaged the final outcome.

"Night and the weekend" feels like being listened to in that most comfortable place in our lives

Hugo Pedro




DESIGN: West Point


REVIEWS:
"Excelente release en mimi, netlabel que hace de puente entre las culturas de Japón y Portugal y celebra la amistad entre ambos países. Este “hermanamiento” se produce a través de la música, en su vertiente mas electrónica, alternativa y experimental, siendo uno de los netlabels mas vanguardistas y atrevidos.

West point es un proyecto japonés, que nos acerca, en este lanzamiento, cinco agradables piezas de ambient-downtempo con una clara orientación instrumental y orquestal, salpicadas con fracturas y efectos electrónicos, consiguiendo un bonito equilibrio entre ambas vertientes y logrando un ep, muy agradable, relajante y con un carácter alegre además de serio. Muy recomendable".

"La notice explicative indique qu’il faut, dans la mesure du possible, être dans les meilleures conditions de confort pour bien apprécier cet mini album signé du japonais West Point. Un mini album sans grande surprise qui offre une écoute agréable mais ne parvient pas vraiment à s’extraire du tout venant electronica/downtempo/ambient que l’on trouve à foison sur n’importe de nombreux netlabels. C’est joli, très doux, mais reconnaissons le ça ne dépasse pas les deux ou trois écoutes. On attendra donc une release plus convaincante pour se faire une idée plus précise du netlabel portugais Mimi".
