Ramiru Mataro | Kahon

One of the pushovers from last year’s roster, Ramiru Mataro clearly has pulled those veteran moves to be part of the line up yet again. But with the beautifully-done chorus and a rather mediocre rest of the song, “Kahon” falls under the proverbial lollipop metaphor – tapon katawan, kain ulo. The thing is, I even predicted it has that strong shot for the flying colors, judging from the initial teaser release. But as soon as the whole thing came out, it felt like 2AM at some dark unnamed loft space in the middle of some misty metropolis, having a bunch of lighters in your pockets but you’re unfortunately out of cigarettes. The seemingly bright start wasn’t sustained.
