nuito are(?) a math rock/post-rock power trio from Kyoto, formed some time in . They are most well-known for their only full-length record, the “Unutella”, although before that, they released two little-known EPs. These EPs are apparently quite rare, and I could only track down one of the two (and a lossy copy of it, at that).

nuito’s style seamlessly blends the kind of ADHD-driven brutal prog/math rock characteristic of both other Japanese acts like Ruins and Korekyojinn (是巨人) as well as American acts like planets and Ahleuchatistas (now Lighted Stairs) with a more pensive post-rock-inspired sound, comparable to the post-rock/math rock fusion of bands like toe and Giraffes? Giraffes!. “Unutella” is a classic of the math rock canon, and also serves as a useful introduction for those new to the genre of brutal prog.
