Even in this digital age where you can find about any genre under the sun, it's hard to find a band as eclectic and bizarre as Nojikas. Still, from a listen to this latest frenetic release the バレエ Ballet Mechanic EP, it's clear that this Japanese experimental outfit couldn't really exist in any other time.
One would find it hard to argue that experimental-math-jazz oddballs Doom Salad aren't dedicated. Since 2013, the band has been birthing a progeny of (good) EPs dating back to 2013, about 1.5 per year by our count. As step up to the plate with their first full-length, Further, Unafraid, Into the Light, it would seem that their fecundity knows no limits.
When Three Trapped Tigers dropped a massive bombshell back in January and confirmed that not only was there a new album coming, but that it would be available as soon as April, it would be an understatement to say that it was a bit of a surprise.
