Strange Spell: Uffun Magic Works’ “Walking With Corpse”

Uffun Magic Works finds Tamao Ninomiya teaming up with NNMIE for a new project of wonky bedroom pop. So far, they’ve released a solid albeit wobbly cover of Stereolab’s “Ping Pong,” and a lovely bit of seasick pop in the form of “Walking With Corpse.” At its core, there is a catchy little song sung by Ninomiya. Yet it gets covered up in disorienting electronic touches and her voice practically splitting apart from itself. The end result is something that teeters along, inviting but also excitingly strange. Listen above. And while you are at it, check out Ninomiya’s solo effort from earlier this year, which explores similar ideas.
