Former Boredoms bass player Hiyashi Hira is Hanadensha main man. The name translates literally as "flower train", probably a reference to the first women only train carriages introduced in Japan 100 years ago to offer some respite from the roving eyes and hands of scum-bag males. Whatever, Doobie Shining Love EP is the third instalment in a lysergic trip-tych comprising first Astral Pigmy Wave then Acoustic Mothership.
This is the shortest of the three EPs, with three psychedelic grooves totalling 18 minutes, and is somewhat different from the earlier two as it has actual songs, of a kind. The title track offers a slow, funky bassline over easy on a synth rhythm, as smooth vocals murmur and spaced-out electronic tones float by. The closer Seasky Rainbow is a perky delight: a simple melodic riff picked on guitar is augmented while synth and organ flutter and woof, then about halfway through gears change abruptly and a heavier fuzz-guitar rounds things off, nicely.
Give y brawd a shout in the Comments if you'd like the rest of the trilogy. Until then, enjoy.
