SUISHOU NO FUNE gthe light of dark nighth archive39 A wonderfully dripping in echo single trax live set played during the bands last small batch of shows from their first trip to Philadelphia. A duo drumless performance on this given night finds Sishou no fune doing what they do best bringing the darkness. PACKAGE comes packed in a double cover center opening sleeves with the outer shell being a vellum overlay all graphics by Chase Middaugh. Single pressing of 600 released in conjunction with current US tour dates.

Brand new limited edition album from this consistently mind-blowing Japanese underground group. This is a live duo show from Pirako and Kageo, recorded in Philadelphia. Three long tracks that move from endless echo-drenched lurks through drone smoke into weird illuminated sound sculpture instants before birthing beautiful psychedelic downer songs with plenty of black atmospherics and prodigious lead guitar. Aspects of early Fushitsusha and Keiji Haino circa First Let's Remove The Colour, all cut up with that classic subterranean Japanese sound. Recommended. Edition of 600 copies. Comes packed in a double cover center opening sleeves with the outer shell being a vellum overlay all graphics by Chase Middaugh.

Great new album from Suishou No Fune. This is a recording of a live show featuring the band as a duo (without drums). Beautiful elongated tones of e-bow drift open the disc and gradually build into a chiming chordal guitar wall. Downer ballads find themselves lost within that wonderful funnel of over-loaded psych-guitar blitz. Great packaging and highly recommended.

As always with our reviews of aRCHIVE releases, there's two things we can say about this, right off the top: the packaging is swank (in this case, the cd is affixed inside a glossy trifold card, itself enclosed in a translucent vellum wrapper). And it's hella limited (600 copies). So act fast if you want to score one of these documents of late-night, slow-burn psych from the duo of Tokyo's Pirako and Kageo. Recorded live in Philadelphia, PA on the 19th of March, 2007, The Light Of Dark Night consists of one 42 minute long track, featuring renditions of three songs flowing together: "Till We Meet Again (You Returned Home To The Heavens)", "A Rose Bloomed", and "You Look At The Night Sea". It begins with their guitars gently droning out of an ambient gloom, bleak yet beckoning... as their music meanders moodily forth, there's stretches of quiet, crystalline beauty, graced with soothing melody and yearning vocals... at other moments the proceedings are also graced with heavy duty distorto crunch, guitars amped up into sheer sheets of flashback fuzz! With no drums this night, it's more about the drone and the drift... definitely a disc that folks into the aura of Boris' Feedbacker might melt for.
