Beginning her career in the late '70s as singer of Osaka punk band Aunt Sally, Phew’s list of collaborations reads like a who’s-who of envelope-pushing rock music - Can, DAF, Einstuerzende Neubauten and The Boredoms to name a … phew. For this latest in a long line of releases, Phew’s vocals jink and drone amid a wild fuzz of drums and processed noise. The press release for this record compares Light Sleep to Nico fronting Suicide, and the comparison holds on opener ‘New World’ and the brutal ‘Mata Aimasho’. That said, one also hears the juddery loops of Radiohead’s ‘Pulk/Pull Revolving Doors’ in ‘CQ Tokyo’ and the processed whale-song of closer ‘Antenna’.
