Melt-Banana, Kinski, Nasalrod

MATTHEW SINGER

Dante's
350 W Burnside St.
 

[HARDCORE JOLLIES] In the past, Japan\'s Melt-Banana specialized in delivering short, sweet blasts of grindcore madness, with an emphasis on the sweet. Each of its albums were like Skittles bags containing morsels of rainbow-colored chaos: blast beats, power-drill guitars and singer Yasuko Onuki\'s high-pitched shriek, all compressed in a candy-coated shell. It was just as blurred and bludgeoning as most noise rock, but shot through with a feeling of ecstatic joy. Latest album Fetch, the group\'s first in six years, finds the band—which is now just Onuki and guitarist-keyboardist Ichirou Agata—expanding outward, with longer song lengths and more meticulously crafted arrangements, but the sense of wild euphoria hasn\'t dissipated. There\'s even a dance song!
