Cibo Matto translates from Italian as Food Madness. Worth knowing. The Japanese hip hop/electro/indie-pop duo of Miho Hatori and Yuka Honda formed in 1994. Stereo Type A was their critically acclaimed second album and was originally released in 1999. Its eclectic mix of sounds have been likened to summer in New York City.

7/10 Jack Customer review, 4th February 2018
The works here are unique but without being "alien" to more mainstream listening tastes, inviting people to "grow into" the music rather than throwing icewater in their faces and screaming at them to "grow up". As a result, this disk probably brought more into their fan base than the earlier effort did. It feels less like screwing around with instruments and genres in the studio and more like realised song-craft. After a couple listens I found myself humming some of these and think "Moonchild" could have been a hit in a more perfect world.
