De Lorians by De Lorians

De Lorians are a bunch of prog-loving psych-jazzers from Japan. That’s probably enough info for you to go on as to whether you’re going to dig the group’s eponymous debut LP. If this is the sort of thing you’re into then you’re going to get plenty of joy from the Tokyo quintet’s fusion freakouts. Wethinks Frank Zappa and Captain Beefheart would have approved of De Lorians.

Mind-expanding music from Japan is always of the finest cut and grade. Whether it's jazz, prog, psych, or a mix of each, this band De Lorians have got it covered. It's hard to convey in a couple of hundred words or so all the things that this album does. There's just so much going on. To describe it I'd have to plunder my carefully curated bank of adjectives that I use when I don't really know what to say about an album. Just know that this album has flute solos, prog sections, krauty bits ('A Ship of Mental-Health' has some moments that sound like Can at their most imperial), insane freak-outs, thumping drums, and even some moments that sound a lot like black midi (anyone heard from them recently?).

I think the crucial thing to take away from this is how despite the freakiness, and the freak-outs, and how freaky it can get, it's always rooted in rhythm. There aren't really any moments where it descends into free jazz noodling and that, dear reader, is a good thing. De Lorians have made a weird and wonderful albums that's exuberant, strange, and (better stop before I plunder the word bank anymore)--
