- Split by Boris / Asobi Seksu
8/10 Clinton Staff review, 14 December 2012
Brrrrrrr. Its cold inside, especially in our toilet which must be the coldest place on the entire earth. Here’s a 7” where Boris cover Asobi Seksu and vice versa. I’m completely confused. The Boris side is very poppy and goes through several different sections before reaching an electrifying conclusion which possibly contains a locked groove although we are unsure whether it’s just a damaged copy (QUIET! - Phil). So yes the A side is a lengthy blast of J-pop shoegaze but with a heavier edge that exemplifies the sludgier end of Boris’ large back catalogue.
On the flip side Asobi Seksu, who are American but sound like they might be Japanese, tackle a Boris number and it’s a much more sedate affair, with digi-synths, a bit Vangelis sounding - all topped off with some haunting lady vocals, and eventually some noisy distorted synths and guitars come in. I don’t know if it’s the mince pie waiting for me in my bag (now eaten) but it sounds very Christmassy. Ltd tour 7” thing which comes with a code where you can download more songs by each band.
