Boomkat Product Review:
15 year anniversary reissue edition of a wild Melt Banana side taking in acid vignettes and deep space electronics alongside angular, mathy punk outbursts
The Japanese band’s 5th studio album is a lot of fun. It sees the band in transition from earlier avant-punk styles to more accessible “hi-fi” electronic sounds, epitomised in the 10 minute long ambient closing song ‘Outro for Cell-Scape’ and the fact that the album features no “real” drum sounds - they’re all programmed on a drum computer. That last track is practically worth the admission alone, if you ask us.
