From last December’s Umi to Uchu no Kodomotachi album, Maison book girl give us more frantic-paced, angular jams with the 5/4 groove of “Kanashimi no kodomotachi (悲しみの子供たち)”. Dismemberment is the name of the game with visualizations of children disintegrating before our eyes and our conception of pop rhythms falling apart in our ears. With the titular children floating in a primordial ooze, “Kanashimi no kodomotachi” is more than a little disconcerting. Graphically graphic, this is no doubt the most gruesome thing I’ve seen all year … and I love it. You’ll find “Kanashimi no kodomotachi” on Maison book girl’s Umi to Uchu no Kodomotachi available in stores now.
