Onna – “Onna” – [Holy Mountain]
Sweet, sweet psych! Slow stoner riffage, wailing guitar noise jams, shoegaze-y pop interludes, and seagulls!
Japanese underground “cartoonist” Keizo Miyanishi (his art is hardly cartoonish) brings his words and music out of the crypt. Tracks 1-3 are tracks and outtakes from a 7″ single from 1983. Tracks 6-9 are a live recording from ’83 and feature a pre-Ghost/Boris Michio Kurihara on arrangements and guitar. Tracks 4, 5, and 10 are outtakes from a 2007 album ‘Katawa.’
Awesome guitar noise-psych on top of pulsing and thudding electronic beats. Take a hike up the holy mountain!
