August 29, 2008: ACSH #3: Yoshimi! and Toxic Chicken
August 2, 2008 Ass-crack Stage-hack
Yoshimi! released ‘II aka The Cheshire Rat‘ through esc.rec. last year and is finishing the work on his first album right now. He plays pleasantly rambling lofi popsongs, played with a broad variety of instruments, like the cello, conga, guitar, synth, bass, bongo, tarbuka, rababa, harmonium, trumpet, accordeon, drums, ukulele and -let’s not forget- his voice. Yoshimi! doesn’t hide the fact that his sound is greatly influenced by The Magnetic Fields. He performs live with the help of his brother, a drummer and sometimes his grandfather.
Ever since Toxic Chicken released his debut album through esc.rec. last year, his output seems unstoppable… Besides releasing another (free mp3) release through esc.rec. he also released several (free) albums through other labels. His bewildering songs, hectic beats and lofi punk noise eruptions often give a personal glance into the chaotic lifestyle of Toxic Chicken. Due to his unorthodox use of attributes and energetic performance spasms, his live performances are remarkable to say the least!
