Album Review

[33 RPM on both sides]

Way gone, trippy, loose psych with rumbling bass and woozy vocals. Then other the half of the time they’re noisy & chaotic not unlike Keiji Haino. Otherwise, file near Bardo Pond, Acid Mother’s Temple. Really well done and a good record to lose yourself in.


((((1)))) Slow bass rumbles, occasional guitar chords, distant vocals. Starts getting louder in the middle then chords become loose & spindly – almost improv style.
(((2))) Kind odd, slow, warbly minimalist “improv psych” with added guitar wank near the end. Kinda works and kinda doesn’t.


(((1))) High pitched, tweaked & treated guitars, random dive-bombers with sporadic percussion. Distorted to hell vocals sorta like some Haino release. If this was Japanese it would already be on KFJC, 6 times a day.
(((((2))))) Laid back, mellow strums, neck runs. Eventually gets louder but still carries that epic psych trip feeling. Really good “slow burner/come down” tune until the mondo guitar flashback wails kick in the 2nd half. “Harsh reality maaaan!”
