Though 'll refrain from attempting to contrast this with the rest of Kawabata & Co.'s ceaseless onslaught, having not spent the requisite year sifting through the mountain of releases that are released weekly from the gates of the Acid Mothers Temple, the endlessly churning reverb soaked atonal acid sprawl this particular agglomeration (Kawabata + AMT's Higashi Hiroshi +drummer Emi Nobuko of Ohkami No Jikan/Seventh Seal and occasionally A.M.T) kicks up at the outset of their fourth of seven releases here is hovering right on the precipice of the same sucking black hole thats at the center of so much contemporary Japanese psychedelic music practice and the effect is a little like listening to Fushitsusha and Toho Sara jam in a wind tunnel. This ultimately ruptures and spills over into long stetches of spare, open and intuitive (albeit still scribbly and distended) improvisations that after the preceding shitstorm are both lovely, unexpected and welcome and which carry on for much of the duration, before the the gravitational pull of the void ultimately rears it's howling head again.
