Ryota Mikamiの4th EP。「パピーバルーン」「モビードール」「ラーマーヤナ」をコンセプトに、多量のサンプリングやスティールパン、コーラス、マリンバ、フルート、シンセベースなどを使用して、ひとつの叙事詩を表現した。無機的/有機的な要素が絡み合った、少しシュルレアリスティックなサウンドが特徴。7曲入り。また、ミュージックビデオにて使用した風船を限定1点のフィジカル「音楽付きパピーバルーン」としてリリース。


4th EP of Ryota Mikami. Inspired by "Puppy Balloon", "Moby Doll (the first orca to survive in captivity for more than two days)" and "Rāmāyana (Sanskrit epics of ancient India)". He expressed the imaginary epic with music using ton of sampling, steel pan, chorus, marimba, flute, synth bass and so on. It features a little surrealistic sound that inorganic and organic elements are intertwined. 7 songs included. Also, we released the balloons using in the music video as a limited edition physical "Puppy Balloon with Music".
