MERZBOW - YOSHINOTSUNE
A great release. Wildly rhythmic, the album consists of three brilliant tracks, by turns soothing and unsettling. 'Ushikawa Kurama Iri' builds cinematically around a 25 minute loop of tribal, ritualistic drumming. Track two, 'Hachiman Taro No Uta' features the distinctive acoustic guitar stylings of Mr. Akita, while the album closer 'Yoshino No Yamazakura' makes extensive use of granular synthesis... distinctive, but certain not to disappoint.
