4 stars Wow, warped and whacked out as usual.

Without any suspicion this EP cannot disappoint you. Look and listen, on the first half of the first track Tsuriganemushi No Uta (Song Of A Vorticella) ... this title we cannot understand at all ... Ayumi's shaggy violin solo warps and loops around here and there, with Nobuyuki's eccentrically jazzy and swingy drums and percussion. Maybe Atsushi knocks various gwarakuta (rubbishy) percussion on the background. Atsushi's voices are of course feminine, and "her" voices can be percussive upon this song and simultaneously make this song avantly poppy - very mysteriously. Why can "her" voices season with various spices?

Next suite The End - mrn ~ aft ~ evn should be more and more symbolic of rampant avantgarde jack-in-the-boxes. Based on Oriental rhythms and tunes, Atsushi's faint (powerless?) voices goes forward into the tragic space, despite our mindspace. Suddenly "her" voices take full power back and persistently repetitive, hypnotic, tribal percussive sounds come around us ... as if a fire on a candle could burn briskly just before going away. The whacked fire continues to get stronger or weaker, and goes ahead into finish named the eternal trance by KATRA TURANA.

Atsushi's shouts at the end of KATRA TURANA I realize? Amazing but so sad.
