3 stars PSEUDO / SENTAI are a "colour-masqued" rock duo with unique innovative soundscape. This EP consists only of 5 short tracks, which cannot claim their versatility or ability completely but we can hear quickly their amazing appearance via this creation (and the sleeve is terrific for me really).

Their second track "Photoperiodism" reminds me the same texture like acid folk in late 60s. Through their relaxed circumstance (maybe), they play flexibly and easygoingly. In less than 3 minutes we can imagine their style and condition upon playing in a studio. Very curious how they explode on stage. "Oil Hurricane" is another pleasure mixed with complex, eccentric electronika and post-punk-ish fuzzy, bombastic voice modulation ... I guess they should squeeze their extreme grunge power most intensively of all. "Foliage Flower" is a short drama with their original psychedelia and avantgarde sound chateau. Sadly the last "Keeper Of The Stars" drenched in flashy, fashionable electronic spotlights and thin voice effects sounds not appropriate for the epilogue of this album.

My emphasis in upon the first track "Landmark Of Vascular Catastrophe" launches all of their great eclectic essence. One of the best songs I've listened to in this year, let me say. The last melancholic, atmospheric, symphonic part is very splendid indeed, but yes, their powerful vocal dissonance notifies us something like a fusion of fantastic dream and tough reality. Cannot help pushing a repeat button of a music player, to be honest.

An enjoyable EP.
