Album Review
Elias (Dr Furious)
Reviewed 2006-11-25 
Japanese female combo led by Boredoms' frontwoman Yoshimi. Carrying the Boredoms' torch of experimental spaz-rock, this 8-song album finds Ooioo much closer to groovy percussions and jazzy/proggy string progressions. Violent outbursts and vehement experimentation are elegantly suppressed and for the most part everything flows smoothly. Lots of ethnic music influences in the mix. Play with Deerhoof, Stereolab, Boredoms, and the most worldly adventurous tracks by the Slits and LiliPUT. For Ooioo beginners with low levels of noise-tolerance, start with track 5 and then advance with track 8.
Play: 6, 1, 7, 8, 5
1. Dominated by heavy percussion. Sonic. Call-and-response vocals of revolting nature. Awesome sound-effects. Classic Ooioo.
2. Dissonant proggy guitars/bongos section followed by jazzy brass/guitar section.
3. Collection of tribal sounds. Think National Geographic. African tropical jungles.
4. Sparse electro effects, snare drums and jazzy vocals.
5. Electro glitch effects. Bongo percussion. Stereolabish vocals. Most listener-friendly track.
6. Most post-punky tune. Edgy strings and noise effects. Guitar line reminds me of the Fall. Beautiful worldly-sounding vocals. Brilliant track!
7. Percussion-dominated with spastic female vox. Cool whistling. Classic Ooioo. See older records.
8. Pretty, melodic but also lamenting/wailing vocals backed up by proggy/mathy guitars. Groovy percussion toward the end with psychedelic electro keys. Stereolab-ish in a way.
