Editorial Reviews

OOIOO is an all-female outfit headed by Yoshimi P-we, a founding member of Japanese experimental psych innovators The Boredoms. OOIOO's earliest music was minimal and digital, but its sound has evolved over four albums and lineup changes. New wave poppy grooves gave way to chaotic plateaus and psychedelic freak-outs. Their current manifestation has derived a rhythm-based soundscape; spacious, spiritual and elevatory, intended as a communication with the Earth and motivated by nature. They use a wide array of instrumental sounds and textures, focusing on accentuating the driving rhythms that get the toes tapping and the hands dancing.

Holy Mother-Truck-Driving Rhinocerous on Steroids... is this good! I have not played it to anyone who hasn't liked it.

The music is rhythmic, quirky and just awesomely fun. It will cheer you up and let you get lost in the mix. There are weird little Hello Kittie plastic melodies bouncing all over the place... the last track is especially melodic and memorable. Some songs are tribal and percussion-centric; others flirt with pop like a tight rope walker; the whole package is clever.

EASILY my favorite album of the year. I was never a gigantic Boredoms fan; this little group is fast becoming a personal favorite.

Very happy with this album, my first exposure to "Ooioo".

I've been a fan of Boredoms for years and have been hungering for years for more of their old stuff like Pop Tatari. This is not exactly the same but it does satisfy the hunger.

There is a lot of work with polyrhythms, like slow outer groove played by rock instruments, together with faster inner polyrhythms on percussion. There's even some tasty trumpet playing (again I'm guessing, same trumpeter as in early Boredoms? if not Yoshimi herself?).

I am even reminded of "Charming Hostess" in the vocal harmonies (a group related to "Sleepytime Gorilla Museum").

Also note that the lead singer here is the same Yoshimi of The Flaming Lips' "Yoshimi vs. the Pink Robots"; in fact she did guest backing vocal screams etc. on that album by the Lips.

This is so much better than any of the self-consciously "hip" stuff that has flooded the music market. They know rhythm. They do rhythm.
