Boomkat Product Review:
You may recall this Japanese electric guitar duo from their recent release on Important Records, The Shining Star, which captured their spectacularly raw astral blues sound in all its live fury. This new double disc release is the most sprawling, unedited representation of Suishou No Fune's sound yet, with twenty-minute slices of audio presenting different angles on the Piako and Kageo's psychotropic scrawl. On the one hand, 'Cherry' on the second disc starts out like a Loren Connors-influenced ditty, with echoing threads of blues reverb cascading over contemplative arpeggios. 'Resurrection Night', on the other hand, offers a dense swirl of distortion, a quarter-hour crescendo shifting into the Jandek-style harmony black hole 'In The Clouds'. An obvious comparison to make here would be with Keiji Haino, but the fact that this is a male-female two-hander means that there's always a lack of fixture to the music, with two very distinct voices taking turns at the helm, oscillating between a noise-fuelled primordial howl and stargazing blues bends without ever feeling at odds with itself. Great stuff.
