Pinhas, Richard / Tatsuya Yoshida - Ascension

Richard Pinhas-guitar, effects
Tatsuya Yoshida-drums, keyboards, voice

“The collaboration between Magaibutsu label leader, Tatsuya Yoshida (Ruins, Korekyojinn, Koenji, The World Heritage, &c) on drums, keyboards & voice, and Heldon mastermind Richard Pinhas on guitar & effects, continues with this CD of live material from their 2014 Japanese tour, extending the 2015 "Live in Japan" album, including the 8-part "Ascension".
An impressive blend of keys and sustained guitar, the two evolve sophisticated progressions of great detail and technical skill. Yoshida's drumming drives both to great heights, building tension and then releasing it into wonder areas of psychedelic wonder, only to pick up the pace again and surprise their listeners with intense interplay of treated and effected guitar work against propulsive and shifting rhythms.
Prog/kosmiche/psych, this music is very much alive in the hands of these two masters, and this album is a monster of spectacular skill and power.”
