Shizuka ( 静香 ) - Traditional Aesthetics [Live '95] (2008)

| Psychedelic Rock | Noise Rock |

Here is another album from the tokyo underground psychrock band: Shizuka (静香). (for other albums, check out here.) This one has been tough to find around, and It's the new release from shizuka. Although it's a 2008 album, it was recorded during a live set at 1995.

This is my favourite album from Shizuka. The First track, "Heavenly Persona - A song for the world left behind" combines my fav two tracks from Shizuka in a song that might be their best. Seriously, listening to Shizuka screaming all her lungs out on the final of "a song for the world left behind" is stunning. The other three tracks are as amazing, showing Maki's powerful guitar, which fills the songs with a dense wall of noise. Traditional Aesthetics is shizuka n full throttle.

This one comes with some photos of Shizuka's handmade gothic-dolls and the booklet, with english lyrics.
