Omochi single

Omochi 7″ “Devil / Happy Moment” Ethbo

Omochi’s debut single Devil, an amorphous urban lysergic bass pop expulsion. A motorbike ride through late night Tokyo, headlights and neon ooze across wind battered eyeballs. A sudden lurch takes the ramp up to the overpass, revealing the electrified vista. With a dime bag of psychoactive tweaks and bleeps, a foraging bassline – a Billy Cobham on K. Dial-ups crying out to connect, once the signal catches, it’s moved out of view, as the organ mourns the hint of dawn on the horizon.

A Happy Moment: percussive spasm, bass once again lurches, unfolding. Omochi’s lyrical push-me-pull-you phased out vocal, the drum machine falls down the stairs, while church organ goes secular, concentrating on the notes outside – mind your pews and Qs.

Omochi is in fact Tadaki Matsunaga, of early 2000s Tokyo three piece Femini Flyers. The Feminis were Tadaki (bass), Sachie (vocals) and Koji (drums). Their 7” single “Like You See” and “Masterbed” was an early Ethbo release – the most requested track from Japan Blues’ Boiler Room Collections video, since it was first aired, way back in 2014 .

Mastered by Kuratani, pressed at the only independent record pressing plant in Japan: Toyo Kasei. Housed in psychoactive sleeve and label artwork by Mishumaro Nakamura.
