2978Re: new boredoms stuff?????????????
- Feb 8, 2009if you've been lucky enough to have seen them on more than one occasion like myself then
you can definitely see the evolution continuing. riffs, patterns, textures are continually
building and expanding like a long-term transmutation. i think 77boadrum and the
proceeding 88boadrum are perhaps the pinnacle of that evolution. i'm not sure what
direction they can go in after that, but i'm definitely willing to stay and find out.
with regards to exfedex's comments about their studio work, i personally think seadrum is
a close approximation of their live performance and super roots 10, while not an good
example of the ferocity (no sevena?!) of the group, does capture a part of the dancey
boredoms which i have witnessed live a few years back in tokyo. i like it, but i personally
have a taste for dance music so take that for what you will.
but i empathize with demand for a proper full length. i feel like they still have a
monster of a album within them still yet to be released.
on a side note, has anyone heard the new yoshimi album? the album artwork looks way
better than the SR10 does.
