Kero Kero Bonito "Time ‘n’ Place (Polyvinyl)"
Oh boy. Get ready to have a blast listening to Kero Kero Bonito. Time ‘n’ Place certainly isn’t the first recording of the London-based band, but its the first one for our buds at Polyvinyl. Mixing their love of J-Pop, K-Pop (sorry L), video game music, heavy metal, noise, and everything in between, their sound is a bubbly, beguiling mixture that couldn’t sound more current if it tried. Vacillating between teen-pop and Deerhoof-esque weirdness isn’t an easy task, and the band does both (sometimes in the same song, sometimes at the same time!) effortlessly. Check out the lead-off track “Outside.”
