8 Doogymoto Minimalistico

The trio called 8 Doogymoto is unlike just about any other act in electronic music, so it's not too surprising to find them on Matthew Herbert's Soundslike label. Singer Fumi's breathy vocals, sung in hybrid English and Japanese, adorn bandmates Viktor and Heinrich's chugging house structures, which bend and bow under the weight of guitars, Casios and unorthodox sound sources. 8 Doogymoto might best be compared to tropic?lia legend Tom Z?, whose carnivalesque avant-pomp and semi-pop set the stage for this trio's exuberant amalgamations. Contrary to its title, Minimalistico is joyously full of emotion and imagination, all bound together with rubber bands and masking tape: sticky, rickety and wonderfully precarious.
