Limited 2LP : Limited edition double crystal clear vinyl
OOIOO is a name that should be familiar for anyone whose waded into rock and if their name isn’t, Yoshimio, their leader’s, should be. Percussionist and founding member for the Boredoms, & Saicobab, and a long time collaborator of Kim Gordon (of Sonic Youth), Susie Ibarra, & Robert Lowe among others.
"Nijimusi" was mainly recorded using a conventional rock ensemble of of two guitars, bass, and drums, but often feels more than that. It’s rock, but can be hard to pin down exactly; psychedelic, shimmering distortion, shouts, and tight instrumentation giving way to a controlled burn of instrumental breakdowns. MISHINA’s, added as the drummer in 2016, drumming shines. They use an improvisational process for recording, which leaves us with a record that feels so alive it’s sometimes surprising it’s still the same record every time you play it.
