Smoke Notes

So its all been done in music before ? Well on hearing this all-girl trio from Japan you may just be given a sudden surprise, a sharp jolt actually, as waves of the most elegant psychedelic rock strain through your speakers. Elements of Blondie, Can and even Mahler all co-exist in an epic landscape of electronic warmth, pulsing grooves abound in ways never imagined before. Gone is the cliched Japanese punk-pop of previous releases on Grand Royal and Emperor Norton, instead we finally have a rock record in 2004 that doesnt sound like one of our favorite bands from long ago. Opener Cyclic is a ten-minute repetitive groove that is beautifully arranged. Its complexities slowly evolving into perfect syncopation. Psychic A-Go-Go adds a little more punch. A banging techno beat takes us on a journey through some loved-up science fiction movie ala The Fifth Element - all shiny but still possessed with a dark heart. Its the closing 303 Live that brings the most joy though. A twenty minute excursion into "acid house" that defies description with all manner of bleeps, squelches and clicks added to the mix, finally topped off by the occasional Beach Boys style harmony in chant form. Buffalo Daughter has come up with an album that signals a new direction for the much-maligned "punk-pop" sound, and Psyhchic is quite simply a record to lose yourself in, and then come out the other side feeling deleriously satisfied and perfectly fuzzy. Recommended for the more adventurous "pop" listener and those who enjoy music of an electronic inspired nature.
