The 2009 Top 20 Albums Of The Year #12

Sometimes people have just too much good stuff going on. Yoshimi manages to spend her time outside Boredoms / Voordoms (one of the only truly innovative and jawdropping bands in the world) as one of the members of OOIOO, who aren’t far behind her “main band” in the genius stakes. She was also in Free Kitten AND got a Flaming Lips album named after her. None of these things have happened to me and I think it’s greedy, to be frank.

Number 12: OOIOO – Armonico Hewa

Describing how OOIOO sound is fairly pointless, they’re all over the shop (in the best way) and the songs largely arrive from studio jams. But there’s some J-Pop, some krautrock / motorik, some noise and a whole load of wonderfulness. One of those bands you’ll only understand if you listen.

So go on then…

OOIOO – Irorun
(Armonico Hewa, Thrill Jockey Records)
