Yojimbo Billions – A Friend With Freaky Needs Is A Freaky Friend Indeed

Yet more eclectic electronica from the scarily prolific Yojimbo Billions here. The man has been spewing out a release pretty much every month since last September, the latest of which finds him in a predictably frantic headspace. After the expansive, cinematic opener – intriguingly entitled Persimmon Van Banger- the EP shifts restlessly in style, embracing itchy almost-techno, spacey sun-blushed ambience and finally the hypnotic highlight, Year of Glad. The track’s chopped beats and array of glitches eventually gives way to plaintive washes of synth that ease the track to its end; a fitting coda to a snapshot of an artist who’s clearly got a lot to get off his chest – here’s hoping his output continues unabated in the coming months.

Get over to his Bandcamp to scope all those EPs and pick them up for however much you feel like paying.
