Nisennenmondai - Destination Tokyo mp3 album
But Tyondai Braxton & co are surely allowed some narcissism, and the three hyperactive chicks of Nisennenmondai deserve the endorsement. ijeN urusuozuoS' (or, well, 'Souzousuru Neji') is like a 30-second intro of any given Battles song, strung out into a black hole and turned into a 13-minute beast of nervous tension. This feeling is best typified, not surprisingly, in 'Mirrorball', the most melodic of the four proper tracks on Destination Tokyo (the fifth being the little brother of 'Mirrorball', 'Miraabouru', which consists of what one presumes are girls' voices, sped up into infantile pitches in imitative a cappella).
On this Smalltown Supersound EP, Tokyo's Nisennenmondai move past post-punk talking points and pay more attention to their songs. For Neji/Tori, their 2008 introduction to America, Tokyo's Nisennenmondai wore their influences on their track list. With songs named after the Pop Group, Sonic Youth, and This Heat, and cuts that careened from freak-out to free jazz, Neji/Tori was an explicit homage to the band's points of origin. This five-song EP, Destination Tokyo, is about where those influences may take them. Detailed and more cleanly recorded, it's as if the trio are demanding listeners move past the confrontations and comforts of post-punk talking points and pay more attention the songs.

Nisennenmondai (にせんねんもんだい) are a Tokyo-based instrumental trio. They formed in 1999 and took their name from the Japanese translation of the then-current phrase "Y2K bu. Guitarist Masako Takada, bassist Yuri Zaikawa, and drummer Sayaka Himeno met at a club near their university and formed the band soon after. The band have mostly released music on their own Bijin label. The compilation album "Neji/Tori" was released by Norway's Smalltown Supersound in 2008.
Their new album, Destination Tokyo, casts a spell in unpolished ways, evoking a gritty hybrid of Krautrock, dance-rock and art-punk. 73. Nisennenmondai maintain grooves until they reach a sort of anxious frenzy, then move to the next buildup. For all the repetitious melodies and rhythms that form the core of the record, they don't sacrifice subtlety or surprise.
