New Foodman: This Is A Pen

Yokohama-based producer Foodman has long been fascinated by the sounds things make, and isn’t afraid to let this curiosity result in confrontational music. His latest EP This Is A Pen opens with one of his most disorienting songs in recent memories (so, like, before the summer maybe), “Udon Soba,” which loads up on samples and skittery electronics. It all congeals into a beat, but not without dozens of brief samples zooming by. The rest of the EP doesn’t approach the discombobulated highs of the opening track, though it does feature some solid Foodman creations (the breezy “Fire,” the wavey and loud finale “Higashikumin”). Get it here, or listen below.
