New Songs & Wrong Songs For Patricia

Well-known Tokyo troublemaker/scenesters Suzuki Junzo and Tabata Mitsuru have gotten together and created a dream-psych-folk duo called, for some reason, 20 Guilders. Based on simple guitar and folk, the songs are most often on the calm side, though with the occasional burst of fuzz breaking through.
Junzo will be known for his solo work ? which this is very akin to ? and his recent membership in the New Miminokoto. His adept guitar work and emotional vocals fit right into this format. Tabata, perhaps best-known for his roles in Zeni Geva and Acid Mothers Temple, may surprise listeners with his heartfelt singing and gentle playing here. His gEnbanh is a simple strum with background lead guitar and soulful singing.
There are two 20 Guilders releases out now, with overlapping versions of some of the same songs. Their self-released CDR gPatriciah and the gWrong Songs for Patriciah cassette ( Sloow Tapes ) contain the same songs for the most part, with a couple that aren't shared. However, the versions of them all seem to be different enough that if you enjoy the songs, you may well want both. The cassette's only available in an edition of 70 copies, by the way, and the song gLittle Swallow-Hikarih, only on the tape, features synth added by AMT's Hiroshi Higashi. (Ongakublog)


Excellent collaboration between Tabata Mitsuru (Zeni Geva) and Suzuki Junzo (Miminokoto, Astral Travelling Unit). Perhaps surprisingly this is rather gentler than you might suppose - dreamy psych-folk songs with (rather less surprisingly) some great fuzz guitar solos. (Boa Melody Bar)


burning psychedelic guitar duos from miminokoto's junzo suzuki and zeni geva's other guitarist tabata, with hiroshi higashi adding some nice vcs3 bleep-out highlights here & there (Mimaroglu)
