Upon The My-O-My @ Doornroosje - Nijmegen (nl)
De Lorians are a quintet from Toyko billing themselves as “a bunch of long-haired Japanese twenty-somethings playing Zappa-loving Canterbury-inspired blissed-out spiritual jazz rippers.”
Grown from the always-heady Tokyo music scene and led by Takefumi Ishida, playing sax and synth, all five De Lorians contribute material to what they call pataphysical music.
The seven tracks here burst with overstuffed Weasels Ripped My Flesh-style action: bonkers horn arrangements, savage guitar solos, constant movement, through-composed sections, improv, surreality, and the occasional peaceful woodwind-dabbled valley.
No singing, no poodle play, just constant surprises, rich vibes, and heavy fun.
