Looking like a possessed Carmen Miranda and spewing a geyser of glosolalian inanity a mile a minute, Emi Elionola is a quintessentially polarizing presence and her inspired prattling is at the center of Demi Semi Quaver's seismic prog eruptions. As was the case with their eponymous debut (which I posted several months back), the hard-edged J-prog of the Bondage Fruit cum Happy Family school is still the closest touchstone for the intensive species of post-prog madness Demi Semi Quaver unleash here, though the vocal dimension and a distinct funk component go some ways to separating their machinations from those of their immediate peers. Cut from much the same cloth as their debut, this is a crucial piece of the 90's Japanese avant prog explosion and a perfect counterpoint to the lovely Japanese underground insanity that Mason Jones has been gracing MS with lately.
