A chance meeting around an axe-wound-shaped microphone and Mahikari is born. On one side, world-famous Acid Mothers Temple guitar god Kamoto Kawabata. Showblazing on stage other is Seiichi Yamamoto, the guitarist ending The Boredoms' sound from the beginning to Vision Creation Newsun. Two of the greatest guitar players of all time cut mind-churning psychedelic meltdowns with ex-Thin White Rope bassist Stoo Odom, following the path paved by their respective bands as well as Fushitsusha, Solmania, CCCC, KK Null, and Highrise.   The first Mahikari record is a blistering colossal attack of legendary proportions, available on super-limited-edition vinyl.  "One listen to the project Mahikari and I'm reminded of precisely the Sonic Youth moments I adore. Each album from the seminal New York band contains a place--a track or a space--where discord is laid aside, revealing truly gritty rock and rhythm: it is in these moments that Mahikari plies its curious breed of guitar fury.... Kawabata and Yamamoto unite to layer an abundance of grit and substance into the mix of each moment. It's chaotic for sure, but carefully chaotic, and something that isn't digestible in one listen.... For fans of Thurston Moore's The Trees Outside the Academy, this will be a companion treat: something that captures the essence of full-blown psychedelic rock meltdowns while grasping the lovely catharsis that comes quickly after." --Erick Mertz
