Boredoms, Vision Creation Newsun (Warner): The iconic Japanoise agitators take a turn into rollicking rhythm, setting their collective controls for the heart of the sun and blasting off. On Vision Creation Newsun. Eye Yamataka's troupe has ascended to some meta-level of supernatural jam-band, evoking misty memories of muscular kraut-rock combos with their tight playing and intuitive changes. With three permanent percussionists now on board, the Boredoms' latest release continues with the sweaty tropical polyrhythms recently introduced on their Super Roots records. — Anthony Carew
