The Boredoms - Super Roots 6 [Very Friendly - 2007]

This is the first of the second patch reissues of The Boredoms ‘off on another track’  Super roots ep’s. It finds the group investigating the  rhythmic and jamming properties of their sound often in a very
approachable manner.

Really it’s unfair to call this an ep, as it runs an hour plus, it’s  also  seems bizarre that they decided to almost side-line this as another Super roots releases, as it could easily stood with its own title.  It  brings out the hypnotic and looped jam feel of some of their work, concentrating on building rhythmic world music tinged percussive patterns, under organ pumps and throbs. Or Rocked up and funky percussive rhythm work-outs, embossed with  guitar chugs, fizzers and funky struts, Or just  building up layers of percussion on there heady own.

Here and there it dips into more tranquil strange piano led mellowness or slowly mystic acoustic bassy unwinding, but mostly this is fairy upbeat. This also doesn’t feel as strange or ‘out-there’ as some of the other Supperroots disks or for that matter their other releasers, making this an attractive inroad into their sound for those who enjoyed rhythmic locked instrumental music.

As with the other reisssues  in this set Very Friendly have artful reproduced the original obi outer strip and the bizarre collage inner artwork. So if your looking for a place to start on The Boredoms strange jouney here would be a good point to jump on their musically freak bus.
