boredoms - Super Roots 6
*Now Reissued At Midprice* My goodness me, it's time for more crucial (and incredibly long-awaited) Boredoms re-issues, and this particular one has always been a favourite of mine. Under-appreciated possibly due to its outright abstraction in place of the balls out manic-rock we might expect, Super Roots 6 is actually a record that manages to surprise me on each and every listen. Textural and brave up until the very last note, the idea that this came out over ten years ago is shocking; the band mix noise, electronics and free rock in a way which would have the knees of almost any Load Records Providence-based noise fiend trembling in sheet amazement. Seriously, these guys know how to party - and even a subdued, experimental party with the Boredoms is more insane and jaw-dropping than anything else you could bring to mind. In amongst a haze of distortion and electronic experimentalism you can hear the band, led by Yamantaka Eye (who possibly has the most overriding voice on 'Super Roots 6') taking the album in distinct and powerful directions from Kraut-rock (which we would see mastered on their later works) to devastating drone. This was unlike anything the band had recorded up to this point and still stands out as an absolute oddity in their catalogue - as such it might not be the best starting point for newcomers to the Boredoms but for fans it is more than essential. So, so good... buy it.
