One of the newer Tokyo psych bands to emerge. Comparable to White Heaven, Shizuka and many PSF bands. "Rising from the ashes of Tokyo Velvets obsessives and Keiji Haino collaborators Broomdusters, Miminokoto are a more immediately auraless proposition. Their dynamic blues constructions are held together by taut, clean guitar lines coiling and snapping around a rhythm section that's liable to alter course in mid-air. The hopping patterns beaten out by Ex-White Heaven bassist and drummer Koji Shimura anchor Kawaguchi's machine gun guitar, which stutters in a polyglot tongue drawing equally from Rory Gallagher, Jerry Garcia and Lou Reed. But Kawaguchi's remarkable vocal most defines Minokoto's sound, his distressed moan giving every track the urgency of deathbed blues." -- The Wire.
