8/10 Brett Staff review, 23 September 2010
Apparently Miminokoto is the project of Koji Shimura who can boast of involvement with much of the royalty of Japanese underground psych over the past twenty years including Mainliner, White Heaven, High Rise and various Acid Mothers incarnations. That alone should give you a vague idea of what to expect from this obi-stripped import job but it doesn't tell the whole story by any means; for while the dreamy guitar tones, occasional crazy solos and over-the-top vocals might seem familiar from his previous groups in general the feel is much more gentle and low-key than any of them.. Perhaps like Majutsu No Niwa only looser and less 'trad' sounding. There's a downbeat, dirgey quality to it that also reminds me a little of the likes of Onna or Suishou No Fune. Pleasantly idiosyncratic!
