2013 release from the Japanese noise rockers. Fetch scrapes glam shimmers off punk's outermost fringes and forges them into a rather intensely technical Deanscape packed with fantastical hybrids. Agata's guitar riffs, seemingly composed in tandem with skipping CD players, are more bad-ass than ever, bright and fractured like the soundtrack for a CC-Hennix-scored biker flick. The album is juiced with electronics and post-rock production, tempering what could easily be a tiresome and predictable frenzy, yielding unexpected associations...
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Chances are, if you've looked up Melt Banana, you know what you're in for.
On the face of it, Fetch is noisy, fast, and chaotic. But this album, much like Cell-Scape, is oddly enjoyable, melodic, and fun to listen to. The bass is strong and thumping; its melody and rhythm propel the songs forward. The guitar and drum tracks experiment with noise and paint an abstract picture of rock. The vocals are high and staccato and whirl the songs into a flurry.
If you're into noisy music, or if you even fancy yourself open-minded, check this album out. It's fun and different, definitely one of the highlights of Melt Banana's discography.
it's been about six years, but Melt-Banana hasn't lost a step- in twelve songs and just over half an hour you get a pretty succinct tour of just about every style they've ever embodied. the songs are noisy, fast, joyful and somehow melodic. down to two people now, but just as good as ever- here's hoping it's not too long until the next album.
