"Masami Kawaguchis vocals are this Tokyo trios most identifiable attribute. Taking some cues from High Rise and even Keiji Haino, Kawaguchis wail is controlled yet somehow on the edge at all times. Whether his vocals work for you or not may determine how you take to Miminokoto, but their psychedelic riffage is definitely worthy of note. Bassist Takuya Nishimura and drummer Koji Shimura (formerly of Mainliner and White Heaven) fill out the trio. Rather than going for the fuzz crown like the previously-mentioned High Rise, this threesome seem more inspired by the Velvet Underground. In some ways theres also a bit of No Wave feeling in these songs, an insistent willingness to push the tonalities past the usual. "23 hours, 30 minutes" is the primary example here, a rolling rhythm that chugs along while the guitar is stuck on a couple of repeated, atonal chords. The harrowing vocals, combined with the shimmering guitar, push the song to the outer limits." - Mason Jones, dustedmagazine.com
