Onna – “Katawa ” – [Psf]

Music project of Japanese underground cartoonist,
Keizo Miyanishi. He also did all the artwork for this
release. The first in many years, Onna have been
semi-around since the 80s. Early lineup included
Michio Kurihara, before White Heaven! This includes
Keizo and two other folks on guitars and that’s it.
Sad, intense and melancholy songs. Keizo sings in
Japanese, but the lyrics are written in English also.
Words range from mystical dragon heads, to voyeuristic
views of a woman pampering, to killings of mothers.
Dark acoustic guitar driven bluesy-folk. Track 4 is
the most upbeat if you’re looking to rock out.
