Mothers In Furs – Jisei No Ku
Self released – 2016
Rock, Psych, Post, Math, Prog, Punk, Stoner
The last time I crashed around Krakow, Poland was simply put amazing. And ever since that time, already a few years ago, I’ve been looking for an excuse to go back there. And the three-piece Mothers In Furs might just be that reason. Their five-track EP called Jisei No Ku came out in January of this year and shows us a band that definitely wants to explore and push at the walls of musical convention. Indeed, on those five grungy tracks they sound like a mathematical or progressive funk band that went all crazy with alternative rock, punk and stoner. There is not an avenue they do not wander into and it takes them to wild and imaginative places. Locations with a definite nineties feel to them. And whenever you feel that nostalgia rising, in Why Was I Born With A Different Face for instance, it simply sounds fantastic. Closing battleship and title-track Jisei No Ku tops all those fine songs that came before. Atmospheric and swirling guitar vortexes. O, and the mixture of the female guest spot vocals on The Land of Dreams and male vocals throughout are intensely pleasant and we can only hope they will do this even more on future releases. Mothers In Furs, we definitely need more!
