None More Weird

In the Acid Mothers Temple universe, new albums fly out at an alarming rate, they have over 75 releases and "Are We Experimental?" is their 3rd studio album of 2009 already. This one stands out because of the absolute weirdness (none more weird!) of the songs and the fact they are songs in general. Most recent AMT releases contain 20 minute plus jams, where as this one has all the songs under 10 minutes, though they can be as structureless as the longer jams. Guitarist Kawabata's free jazz strat riffs meet up with the bizarre vocalizing of monster bassist Tsuyama for most of these songs, mixing elements of noise, psych, folk, drone and prog rock in a volatile mix of... the strange. AMT insiders will recognize this as more of a Tsuyama album than a Kawabata album, his off kilter sense of humor soaks the whole album but especially on songs like "Holy Rock N Bible" and the album's stand out track, "Ultimate Unhip Blues." This is a good one for the novice to check out as well, a lot of variety of influences and sounds that they reference on many other records, though it really doesn't sound like much else in the AMT catalog. Space is the place!

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Acid Mothers Temple & the Melting Paraiso U.F.O. (Underground Freak Out) were founded in 1996 as a "soul collective." It's not a commune in the full sense since...
