Yek Koo – Desolation Peak
gretaclue 1/1/2014 A Library
Yek Koo is Helga Fassonaki. This whole record sounds exactly like what happens to your hearing when hallucinogenic drugs begin to kick in. Slow, moody, and often chant-like. Big distorted guitar and vocal mumbles. I’ve heard this be referred to as East African chanting or even rap. There is nothing rap-like about this to me. not even in a Debbie Harry white girl way. It sounds more like a call to war for orcs or some other primordial ooze creature. Fun to call the corners with, sacrifice an unlucky infant to.. but it’s not the record you wanna bob around your living room to. Unless you are covered in infant blood.
