New Foodman: Pokopoko

If all weeks could start with a springy new album courtesy of Foodman, life would probably be easier all around. Well, until that glorious future arrives, savor Mondays like this. The ever-wonky producer put out a new collection with London-based label Plastic Bags titled Pokopoko, which features six songs sporting that same title. Tracks here range from surprisingly laid back even as they skitter all over themselves (“Pokopoko1” and all its crystal detail) to typically darty for Foodman (“Pokopoko4,” above, begging for use in some sort of left-field cartoon chase sequence). It’s a jaunty way to start the day, and a great reminder of Foodman’s ability to create pleasure out of pieces that shouldn’t fit together. Get it here, or listen below.
