OOIOO Discography

"Armonico Hewa", OOIOO's sixth full-length album and first record in over three years is set for release in late October 2009. "Armonico Hewa" continues the rapturous and frenetic celebration of nature that coursed through the veins of their 2006 album "Taiga". Where as "Taiga" meant "forest" in Russian and "big river" in Japanese, "Armonico Hewa" is a combination of words ("armonico" is Spanish and "hewa" is Swahili) that is defined by the band as "air in a harmonious state". Like the cross-cultural title, "Armonico Hewa" is a mind-melting combination of stylistic reference points that can only be described as some kind of tribal psychedelia that is oddly spiritual and alarmingly urgent.

Yoshimi began her music career in 1986 playing drums in UFO or Die with Eye and later joined him in the revolutionary noise-pop experimentalist Boredoms. While the group has featured different musicians in the past, the same all-female four-piece who created "Taiga" is once again the driving force behind "Armonico Hewa". Longtime OOIOO guitarist Kayan, bassist Aya and drummer Ai join Yoshimi to create one of the most enthralling, adventurous and unique bands in modern music.
