When discussing Japan's psychedelic/Krautrock-informed collective the Boredoms, the group's name is usually spoken with reverence. Or perhaps bewilderment. However with Seadrum/ House of Sun
-- two tracks spanning over 21 minutes, and the band's first material in five years -- boredom is sadly a modifier. "House of Sun" is a beatless meandering of sitar tuning more akin to Acid Mothers Temple's sprawl. It's like leaving the aperture of a camera open way
too long: The colors may be super-saturated but everything else is no longer discernibly distinct. The better of the two tracks, "Seadrum" is a chimerical jam drowned in splashy percussion, piano glissando, and verbalized nonsense.
