Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fetch (Audio CD)
Received 'Fetch' today from Amazon and haven't done much beyond listening repeatedly - It's great - One of Melt Banana's finest works. If you haven't heard the band before, this music is wildly inventive and seriously energetic. I find it hard to sit still with these songs in rotation.
Guitarist Agata creates all manner of melodies and frenzied riffs with his vast collection of FX pedals. Yako's voice is unique as ever - Her chirrups and shouts give the music a cute and loveable quality. The drums and bass are often delivered at breakneck speed with violent precision. Some of these songs will cause injuries at gigs. However, my descriptions will never fully do them justice - Nobody sounds like Melt Banana. You really need to hear them for yourself. Suffice to say the energy in this music is incredible.
If you like your music to be traditional and formulaic you may find Fetch abrasive, but if you want great music with boundless energy, this album is a shiny jewel on a beach full of grey pebbles. I love it to bits.
