– Black Noise is the New Sound (BCore) Tokyo Sex Destruction is an American band who spend most of their time touring in Europe, and they made this record in Barcelona. The press sheet, which was written in English by someone for whom English is a second language, calls Tokyo Sex Destruction "psicodelic", which is probably pretty accurate since it’s not exactly psychedelic, but it’s close. I hear some Doors and Hendrix influences, but also MC5, The Animals and Zeppelin. Yet, even with all those 30-year-old influences, they still sound fresh and modern, thanks to some top-flight production. Not that it sounds slick; there’s still plenty of garage type atmosphere and reverb. The songs are all fast and they play ‘em loud. I get the impression they’d be a blast to see live, but I don’t feel like flying to Barcelona . The bottom line is that this is a fun record of danceable garage rock, suitable for your next party or barbeque blowout. – Brian Mosher
