If you're the kind of person who thinks that Guided by Voices songs from the early '90s were too long, or that Teenage Fanclub fannied around too much with things like bridges and dynamics, or that Weezer spends too much time these days on cruise ships, then Tony Molina knows exactly what you are looking for. Dissed is the kind of record that feels like it came out of nowhere to blow minds, and trumpets Molina's arrival with 12 short blasts of perfection.
On the Canadian-Asian collective's third LP, they hit a magical sweet spot with an ambitious epic that combines Native American mythology, Buddhism, anime, psych rock, prog metal, and apocalyptic sci-fi grandeur. It's a doozy of a concept and a sonic journey not to be missed. Try "Yandere," "Hungry Ghost," and "Beast" for a taste of this genre-defying gem.
