You need a turntable to hear what Boris, the Tokyo superfuzz trio, mean by "heavy" and "hits" on Japanese Heavy Rock Hits (Southern Lord), a series of three seven-inch singles, each with its own subtitle. "8" is a side of high-speed savagery and one of guitar scuzz and bubblegum mantra. The industrial crunch across both halves of "H.M.A. — Heavy Metal Addict" will be solace to those mourning the live retirement of Nine Inch Nails. "16:47:52" is simply schizo: a bare-strum ballad and a full wall of drone and vocal sigh. No hits then. But lots of heavy.
