Now on to his fifth album, the inspiration for Kama Aina's Takuji Aoyagi were his extensive travels to far-flung locations between Bali, Cuba, Scotland and his home, Japan. The Scottish influence is particularly obvious given that Isobel Campbell, The Pastels and Bill Wells all contributed to this record. That said, 'Club Kama Aina' really does sound like a solo record, given the way in which Aoyagi employs the local sounds he picked up to create his cute, off-kilter melodies. In the case of 'Cubali Street Scene', the music does exactly what the title says, whilst 'Millport', 'Car Song' and the title track combines the talents of the aforementioned Scottish musicians to deliver an atmospheric mood piece, a lovely warm melody and a mournful sleepy-eyed instrumental respectively. The sweet 'Wedding Song' proves that Aoyagi actually works well without outside help too. Yet the real strength of the album is how relaxed and tuneful it all sounds.
