KASUMI TRIO [2009] OH! GIMME YOU (BETA-LACTAM RING)



Everything has it's highest moment. It can be instant as well as can last times of times… The most powerful stuff can't be caught, pigeonholed and/or correlated with one of mentioned — it appears and dies each second and all you can hold as a souvenir is… Well, could be said — shadow. Or breath. Of the sound of steps. Or distant memories of way-ago-valid-URLs hehehe. But WHERE'S THE MUSIC?
Last year saw 2 Kasumi Trio's albums — Tsunashi (released by Majikick records) and Oh! Gimme You (by Beta-Lactam Ring). About 1st one — a bit later. Today's topic — Gimme You.
@BLRR: KT featuring members of LSD March and Tenniscoats. Folk-psych folks will be psyched about this bizarre collaborative excursion. A gloriously subdued affair, largely comprised of simple guitar arrangements, stripped-down percussion and soft singing (male and female) punctuated by bouts of power tools and gated feedback. The somber psychedeliosis is embedded in a loose atmosphere of echo and electronics recalling the beautiful ambiguity of Deux Filles; or Joao Gilberto if he fell off a Durutti Column into a vat of mescaline. Duulicious! With such a fried gamma-blues bringing up the rear, days could get lost while being reborn in this slithery tonal placenta.

Available in a full color book bound gatefold sleeve in an edition of 600 copies.

Both Saya and Ueno also perform and release solo works.
