LAST VISIBLE DOG RECORDS
"Yet another entry into the exponentially increasing catalogue from Kawabata Makoto comes outside of the realms of The Acid Mother's Temple. Fellow Acid Mother's Templar Higashi Hiroshi brings his bass to Kawabata's guitar, alongside the newcomer Emi Nobuko on drums. The album opens in similar fashion to Kawabata's
Father Moo & The Black Sheep
album, with a synthetic wash of pitch-shifting / multiverb guitar tones. Slowly these ambient tonalities develop into shimmering fragments of melody half appearing, then dissolving into kosmische haziness." -- Aquarius. This CD reissue comes with an exclusive bonus track, pushing the album length up to just shy of an hour.

"Tsurubami may vary will be the must blissfully unrestrained blast of hallucinatory fire to ever spiral forth from the Acid Mothers Temple Soul Collective. Certainly the inspiration behind Tsurubami ranks it among the most philosophical and deeply spiritual. Comprised of Emi Nobuka (drums), and fellow Acid Mothers Temple compatriots Kawabata Makota (guitar) and Higashi Hiroshi (bass). Upon entering Tsurubami's sphere for the first time, it is immediately evident that a higher form of consciousness is at play. The crux of the band is driven upon the actual meaning of Tankyo no To -- those who are destined from a previous life to become eternal blood brothers. Set aglow by the innate understanding of their linked fate, the three effortlessly meld together into one intuitive being, telepathically tapping into a collective consciousness that manifests itself as an intensely emotive flurry of sound-energy.
is hard evidence of Tsurubami's ritualistic soul purging, an aggressive physical excursion of group dynamics spread across two compositions that stretch in total just past the one hour mark. Resonating, ringing guitar fractals are drowned in layers of echo-chamber effects, swelling with intense volume over restless bass pulses and feathery multi-directional drum patterns, scattering sonic debris like clouds of pollen over unsuspecting heads. Not all of the Tsurubami experience is fire and brimstone however, sound streams ebb and flow, finding lilting pockets of relief that are almost yearning and ballad-like. An aura of heaviness is imparted, not necessarily of musical gravity but of a sobering sense that
is a document of a unique moment in time, an instance of complete disembodiment of the musicians." -- www.strange-attractors.com.
