Acid Mothers Temple spacehead Kawabata Makoto has resurrected his stoner trio Mainliner for a brand new and devastatingly psychedelic freeform groove-splatter odyssey. The rhythm section of Kawabe Taigen and Shimura Koji settle into relentless, repetitive grooves that anchor the tracks with a churning intensity while Makoto shrieks and splatters over the top with a super-saturated, bowel-liquifyingly crunchy guitar tone which rides high in the mix full of defiantly piercing buzz and scree.

All this is often backed up with vocalisations treated with so much reverb and echo that they’re just ethereal blurs and sinister garbled moans, a desolate cloud drifting over the clattering, galloping wreckage which pounds itself into the most primitive part of your subconscious, tempting us to a violent new freedom. The two minute noise-punk breather of D.D.D. which comes before the epic 20-minute closing track is particularly fun, but there’s a whole smorgasbord of harsh psych-noise riffing and indulgent free exploration here for those brave enough to investigate!
