Montreal/Toronto “noh-wave” duo Yamantaka // Sonic Titan only released their debut LP YM//ST a couple of months ago and are already gaining significant buzz. (Yes, you’ve probably heard this track on CBCR3 before.) Self-described as “Asian Diasporic psychedelic noh-wave opera group fusing noise, metal, pop and folk music into a multidisciplinary hyper-orientalist cesspool of ‘eastern’ culture in giant monochrome paper sets” … well, there isn’t much more to say.
Yamantaka // Sonic Titan – Hoshi Neko
Listen if you like: the thought of rocking out to tight, Chinese-opera-infused prog-pop.
Added bonus: they’re playing in Toronto at the Garrison on the 28th, and may be making the rounds to Ottawa in the near future. Stay tuned!
