Here’s the new gamelan-inspired album from OOIOO, led by founding Boredom Yoshimi P-We.

It’s a rich and baffling concoction, with lengthy improvised songs swept along by a current of twinkling polyrhythms, mind-boggling drum puttering, woozy guitar riffing and rhythmic vocal chants and wails. Theirs is a kind of shuddering ethereal post-punk, part Chrome Hoof, part Philip Glass, part Damo Suzuki, capable of going from weird minimal Akira-esque vocal led spook outs to clattering, triumphant eastern funk chaos, often in the space of a single song.

The jams are long and sometimes a bit swampy but the primal repetitive nature of the music means it’s always driving and rhythmically focused and never descends into chaos. The more clamorous bits are often the most satisfying and uplifting, in a way that reminds me of the Boredoms mixed with touches of the primitive rock abandon of Acid Mothers Temple, Raccoo-oo-oon and Sunburned Hand and steeped in the patient polyrhythmic chimes of the gamelan. Hypnotic exercises in organised chaos. I like this.
