Artist: MIMINOKOTO
Title: 2
Format: CD
Label: Austin
Country: Japan
Price: $14.00
"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

Title: Hitoyogiri
Format: CD
Label: Important
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Brand new full length from Miminokoto. Highly recommended for fans of Tokyo-Underground, classic era PSF and contemporary Japanese outfits such as LSD March and Suishou No Fune. Featuring members of Acid Mothers Temple, Overhang Party & Che-Shizu. Seven tracks, recorded at Peace Music by Nakamura Souichiro in late 2010, including an amazing cover of the late Jutok Kanekos (Kosokuya) Milky Light. Get deep into the decadent death doom of Miminokoto." -Important.

Title: Live
Format: CD
Label: Last Visible Dog
Country: USA
Price: $12.50
"Rising from the ashes of Tokyo Velvets obsessives and Keiji Haino collaborators Broomdusters, Miminokoto are a more immediately auraless proposition. Their dynamic blues constructions are held together by taut, clean guitar lines coiling and snapping around a rhythm section thats liable to alter course in mid-air. The hopping patterns beaten out by Ex-White Heaven bassist and drummer Koji Shimura anchor Kawaguchis machine gun guitar, which stutters in a polyglot tongue drawing equally from Rory Gallagher, Jerry Garcia and Lou Reed. But Kawaguchis remarkable vocal most defines Minokotos sound, his distressed moan giving every track the urgency of deathbed blues." - The Wire.

Title: Orange Garage
Format: CD
Label: Last Visible Dog
Country: USA
Price: $12.50
"At this late date, anyone who hasnt yet heard of Miminokoto simply hasnt been paying attention to (or has no interest in) the Japanese psychedelic underground. In all respects a super-group (with ties to LSD-March, White Heaven, Broom Dusters, Aihiyo, Chie Mukai, High Rise, etc.), Miminokoto has quickly earned a name for itself with its restrained, Velvets-influenced sound (as opposed to the all-in-the-red, fuzzed-out approach so common to so many other Japanese psychedelic groups). With most of their releases available only from Japan (at high import prices), Last Visible Dog once again offers a domestic-priced alternative in the form of Orange Garage, a top-notch live release that rivals Miminokotos studio efforts. Featuring three songs unavailable anywhere else (one over 16 minutes), and revamped heavier versions of some of the bands best numbers, Orange Garage is perhaps Miminokotos most immediate and well-balanced release to date." - Last Visible Dog
