Graced with a far out mammal that's got eyes as sanguine as Red Delicious apples, Ishoku-Sokuhatsu from front to back makes for a listening experience bohemian and lucid. For a full-length record that only features 5 tracks, Yonin Bayashi make the small number of pieces count hard. With an overarching style rooted in prog, the band's debut LP also sports influences of straight rock, jazz, psychedelia, and even symphonic touches; said sounds are pulled off in impeccable fashion. Honestly there isn't one fault I can find within Ishoku-Sokuhatsu. It's eclectic, tightly-knit, and offers plenty in the way of resilience. Topping this all off, the production quality is so clear without being overdone. It's a crime how such a badass recording flew under the radar. The material on Yonin Bayashi's first official effort goes to show that even you can learn a thing or two from sloths, let alone the ones who use tobacco pipes.
