Sun OK Papi K.O. Orchestre Philharmonok
- Words: Josiah Hughes
- Label: Sonig
Formerly one half of Scratch Pet Land, Laurent Baudoux is currently slated for world domination with his full-length debut as solo alias Sun OK Papi K.O. The musical equivalent of an all-night Dr. Mario party, Orchestre Philharmonok is the most bizarre fun you can have this year. From the 8-bit synths to the cut-up guitar fragments to the grimy verses from Japan's MC Illreme, Philharmonok is the sort of innocent amusement that's impossible to critique. Call it sound collage, call it glitch... no one cares. This is music for dancing, grinning, and laughing to.
