Randy Barracuda "Onaina"
Today, Helsinki-based producer Randy Barracuda released his latest record via Losonofono, an LP aptly titled Random Works of Randy Barracuda Vol. II. As it turns out, the album's title is a bit misleading, as the eight-track offering is a focused and consistent collection of original tunes that combine smooth funk rhythms and melodies with chaotic sound effects and undercurrents of the avant-garde. Like the volcano in the music video for Randy Barracuda's "Vuoristotie" (you can watch that after the jump), both elements of meticulous order and random disarray flow seamlessly throughout his music, but as album cut "Onaina" demonstrates, the artist obviously has a command over both sides of his sound.
