This blog isn’t running in that sweet, sweet sponsorship money for many reasons, but one is because I’m willing to step back and take a look at, what in 2015 terms, is an artifact. Wonkier artists Oorutaichi and Ytamo toured the Tohoku region of Japan in 2011, and made a special EP called Ihati that was only available then. Well, they went and uploaded it recently, and it is a relaxing, fun little collection that finds two musicians unafraid of getting strange trying out a more lazy-Sunday vibe. Strange little sounds pop up — see finale “Plant,” which gets really wild at the end, complete with heavily manipulated vocals — but the bulk of Ihati is a snapshot of two artists trying out something more easy going…but still coming up with something charming. Listen below, or get it here.
