4 stars Sigur Ros meets Merzbow in a bar, 9 months later they get a baby. The babys name is Worlds End Girlfriend......

World's End Girlfriend is the musical project of Katsuhiko Maeda. He blends postrock/electronica/metal and typical progressive elements into a fantastic mix.

The album opens with "Phantasmagoria Moth Gate" that feels like something squeezed between good and evil. The first melody is harmonic and is being kicked around by a sour and tired trumphet, and then there is loads of instruments and sounds added to complete the composition.

Its fantastic.

By the way, Phantasmagoria means "noun: a constantly changing medley or real or imagined images (as in a dream)" and thats a good way to describe Weg`s music. Its the kind of music you put on when you soak down in the sofa after a long day with a cup of coffee.

Katsuhiko Maeda is a multi-instrumentalist inspired by classical music, who started experimenting with tape recorders in his pre-teens, World's End Girlfriend tends to cram his releases (and indeed individual tracks) full of all his influences all at once and thats why this album never gets boring, there is always something new for each listen.

This is post rock at its best.
