Boomkat Product Review:
Brought to the attention of international audiences by PSF's Tokyo Flashback Volume 5 compilation, Suishou No Fune are a guitar duo formed by wailing psych travellers Pirako Kurenai and Kageo. The group invite Fushitsusha comparisons, not just in terms of their sound but also in the Keiji Haino-style blacker than black imagery of the sleeve art and photography. Captured live on this disc, the duo trade licks and vocals in a blitz of effects and atmospheric psych, all to an oddly wispy sounding backbeat. The recording is a pretty idiosyncratic affair, smudging the sound somewhat, only for a few penetrative lead guitar phrases to break from the rasping swirl that dominates the band's sound. The slowed-down blues of 'You Look At The Night Sea' presents the group in the greatest detail, leaving enough space for you to be able to make out the finer points. The sort of pedals these guys put their instruments through might suggest shoegaze, but musically this stuff is far more tapped into blues and far-out stoner rock, though by the time you arrive at the closing twenty-two minutes of 'The Storm Of Light - Cherry', the drums have dropped away and your left with a glorious, ascendant expanse of guitar texture and distortion. Great stuff.
