OOIOO – “Gamel” – [Thrill Jockey Records]

Once I went to Bali and heard a gamelan orchestra performing a kecak, or monkey, dance. This CD (especially Track 8) sounds exactly like that did. From the chimey start to the chaotic finish of this amazing CD, I kept thinking, “Wow! Gamelan with voices that sound Indonesian (or at least foreign) chanting, clicking, and rollicking along with guitar that adds rock infusion!” The energy sounds Japanese, and it is. I don’t know how to pronounce the name of this band, but this profusion of awesome gamelan tunes seamlessly seguing one to the next proves its versatility yet again.
