MASATO TANAKA / POCKET GALLOWS: Ordinary of the Mass: Split LP

Masato Tanaka: Crunchy guitars and sludgy/grindy hardcore stuff with more than a smattering of odd keyboards. Pocket Gallows: First tune is a noisy bit of metallic skronk; second track is a much quieter—and oddly more unsetting—piece with keyboards and drums. Last tune goes back to the sludge.
