Boomkat Product Review:
Prog jazz skirmishes and lounging exotica oddness by performance artist Eiichi Shimasaki (Ichi) and Bristol band The Evil Usses,
The ’Nee Naw Mixtape’ plays into Kit Records’ tastes for winking musical confections with a first time fusion of two respective units. Japan’s Shimasaki lends colourfully cartoonish caterwaul and pop-punky moxie to the adroit, playfully mathy chops of The Evil Usses, approximating something like Deerhoof jamming with black midi, or Mark Mothersbaugh with Damo Suzuki. It’s a marmite coated trifle - you’ll either love or hate it, but either way it sounds like they had a laugh making it.
Eight songs sashay from the neatly folded but wigged out exotica origami of ‘Barnacles’ to perky CBeebies daftness soundtrack recalling Mark Mothersbaugh in ‘New Naw’, with a riff on the Rhubarb & Custard theme ‘Moon Blooze’ giving way to the stop/start skronk of ‘Mr. DIY’, and sun-dazed country strut in ‘Credits’, with an instrumental of ‘Barnacles’ ready for you to practise your Japanese scat. No, not that type, ya mucky bugger.
