Nommo Ogo – “Sea of Night, The” – [Katabatik]
Local experimental artists out of Oakland. I appreciate the weirdness that is Nommo Ogo. This is a dark, dusty, cinematic exploration that I really do enjoy. It builds and rolls and throbs and takes you on a droney psychedelic trip. Unfortunately the vocals only detract from the overall release. Some people might really dig the vocals (male, growly) but to me it takes away from the beauty of the instrumentation. I could love them and I could love this, if only it were purely instrumental.
