Pom Poko - Birthday

Pom Poko - Birthday
Record of the Week is Birthday, the debut album from the young Norwegian four-piece Pom Poko.

They are absolutely explosive, one part Battles, one part Deerhoof, African guitar licks and a thrilling delivery all of their own. Birthday is an album that has left us tingly, it's full of tightly wound rhythms and riffs but also a wild and swirling bounce.

Highly recommended, great stuff this.
