Perhaps the most un-google-able band name in history (and I thought Girls owned that honor) oOoOO have been making blog rounds for a few months with super dark, stark, glitchy music that many will hate but I love. Obvious comparisons are to Salem but beyond that I’m not sure… I like it and hope to dig up some other artists doing this.
oOoOO just released a mix for 20JazzFunkGreats. I’ll let xxjfg explain the mix in their own words:
Finally, oOoOO, the creator of some intensely good nightcrawler jams and a firm favourite of ours, recently sent 20 Jazz Funk Greats an exclusively made mix which we’re now more than a little happy to be able to share with the wider world. So go sit in the cupboard under the stairs, light some candles, and absorb the sounds of creeped out, decaying booty bounce colliding horribly (meaning wonderfully) with dusky, drug drip teengirl balladry, slinky necronomi-pop rhythms, and backwater freak outs.
All I will add to that is be on the lookout for some doowop ballads, overwhelmingly repetitive hiphop and some dark sound bites.
