INSANE’N THE BRAIN: Mizubukurentamashii: 7″ EP

Nice, colorful packaging that opens up in all directions in a cross shape with lyrics and pictures on the inside. Musically, this is a little hard to get the mind around…. For the most part, it’s grindy Japanese hardcore, but there’s an almost emo undercurrent that causes the songs to lurch and stop, switch volume and tempo. This ain’t bad, but it’s gonna take some gettin’ used to. No wonder the bassist looks painfully constipated.
