Now in their third decade of existence, Japan’s OOIOO — led by legendary multi-instrumentalist YoshimiO — continue to excel in recording energetic and inspired modern psychedelia. Their first new music since 2014’s 'Gamel' sees the group’s adventurous instrumentation reduce back to conventional acid rock guitars, drum kits and chanted vocals. The approach remains anything but conventional though, producing a rollicking, repetitive ritual replete with trumpet blasts and animalistic screams from YoshimiO.
