Takeshita – Problematic CS

Takeshita – Problematic CS

Even Konosuke himself couldn't pin Problematic; it never stops moving, evading, wriggling away like one of those inside-out water balloon things that are impossible to get a solid grip on. Takeshita's toolkit remains largely the same over the course of the four tracks—crunchy pedal chains, overclocked delay, mixer with a L/R balance knob that's probably close to falling off by now—but the restless energy keeps things interesting and unpredictable to the end. Be sure to have both earbuds in and/or your speakers properly placed… there are enough sonic doodads and shrapnel fragments whirling about that you'll need all the extra space you can get to clean up.
