The winners of the rookie band competition at this year's Summer Sonic might do well to heed the example of Haisuinonasa, who performed at the festival in 2007 but took another five years to deliver their debut album. If you've stuck with them this long, Dobutsu no Shintai is worth the wait, further refining the group's distinctive blend of post-rock, minimal electronica and ethereal pop. Fans of Clammbon and The Album Leaf are likely to enjoy this release party, in which the quartet play without any support.
