Butter 08 - Butter 08

I think everything Miho Hatori and Yuka Honha  take part is effing great.

Butter 08 is a side project that was born when Cibo Matto was recording the song Know your Chicken (at least it’s what the rumours say).

Bondage Fruit II

Second album by Bondage Fruit, already one of my fav experimental bands.
I feel a solid evolution since their first album. Everything is more polished, clear and balanced.

They grew in such a way of using vocals as harmonic and percussive structures that I can relate them to OOIOO. Or this album as a huge influence on OOIOO‘s music.

In other words, a delight. Get it if you can. If you cannot then contact me.

I absolutely love this. 10/10 rating with no doubt.

Cocteau Twins - Milk & Kisses

Last studio album by the scottish band I love the best.

Here they seem to have made a step back to sound more like their 80’s recordings.

But in this album is the song that has one of my favourite lyrics ever, Rilkean Heart.
