Himuro Mild Fantasy Violence
- Words: Rachel Shimp
- Label: Zod
The schizophrenic beats of Fukuoka, Japan‘s Yoshiteru Himuro ricocheted off experimental labels in Australia and London before landing in Zod‘s Milwaukee, Wisconsin outpost with the force of a Galaxian flagship. Excepting a lazy broken beat here and ominous belches of sound there ("The Cracks in Your Monita" could be Tech Itch on Robitussin), Himuro suggests a spazzed-out nature, eyes bugged and attention shot from growing up haunted by 16-bit ghosts. Notches above novelty, "Button of Reset" (which sounds like you‘d expect) is well composed enough to throw trendy arcade kitsch on a permanent tilt.
