YURA YURA TEIKOKU - Hollow Me / Beautiful

YURA YURA TEIKOKU - Hollow Me / Beautiful (DFA) Comentários: A highly successful act in their native Japan, Yura Yura Teikoku emerged from the psychedelic rock underground twenty years ago, releasing Hollow Me as their tenth studio album. Apparently this one marks a departure from the more unhinged sounds of their past, reining in their instruments for a tautly minimalist style of pop. Certainly, if we're talking about Japanese psychedelia, these guys could hardly sound more different from the likes of Acid Mothers Temple or Suishou No Fune: the album gets underway with 'Ohayo Mada Yaro', whose pretty yet peculiar tremolo pedal loops are countered by an appealingly upbeat vocal and some ace sax soloing. Elsewhere, splintered krautrock repetition rules, kicking into a choppy motorik groove with 'Sweet Surrender', and shuffling amiably into a surreal boogie with 'Still Alive'. This uncontrivedly quirky album is a strange fit at first, but as you get acquainted with the band's genuinely unique sound its peculiar brilliance becomes apparent soon enough.
