Nisennenmondai – Destination Tokyo (2009)

Scroll down to content

For Neji/Tori, their 2008 introduction to America, Tokyo’s Nisennenmondai wore their influences on their track list. With songs named after the Pop Group, Sonic Youth, and This Heat, and cuts that careened from freak-out to free jazz, Neji/Tori was an explicit homage to the band’s points of origin. This five-song EP, Destination Tokyo, is about where those influences may take them. Detailed and more cleanly recorded, it’s as if the trio are demanding listeners move past the confrontations and comforts of post-punk talking points and pay more attention the songs. Not coincidentally, there’s more here to pay attention to. [Source]
