Cibo Matto  Hotel Valentine
Cibo Matto  Hotel Valentine 300x300
(Chimera Music)
After achieving mid-90s popularity with uniquely colorful pop/trip-hop songs such as “Sugar Water” and “Know Your Chicken,” the New York City trip-hop duo released a second album before disbanding for almost ten years. Cibo Matto (Italian for “crazy food”) finally reformed in 2011 to begin work on a concept album “with a love story and ghosts in a hotel.” They pull of an excellent return to form with their distinct, catchy “shibuya-kei” (a pop, jazz and bossa nova-influenced sound that originated in their birthplace Japan.) “MFN” (an abbreviation for “Motherfucking Nature”) is an easy standout, with the ladies taking the role of a pissed-off ghost in a tune that mixes spooky shriek-and-moan ambience with raucous, punchy hip-hop. I also enjoyed the cooled-down synth atop stark, glitchy minimalism to tell about a story of unease felt while swimming in an “Empty Pool.”

Sporco Sporco
Sporco Sporco Grand Imperial 300x300
(Grand Imperial)
This New York post-punk/experimental indie band was around from 2002 to 2009, with two central multi-instrumentalist members: Fred Kraii (screams, back-up vocals, drums, percussion) and John Milano (guitar, bass, piano, additional drums, etc.) This compilation is a retrospective of sorts: not a “greatest hits,” but Sporco’s picks for album, EP, single and demo songs that best represent them. Self-recorded in “basements and shacks,” their lo-fi music sounds like a throwback to the indie/art rock of the 80s and 90s, with one of my favorites being the pummeling noise punk beast “Kowtow To The Underground.” Most of the tracks here are more laid-back, such as the richly played nocturnal-sounding “Good And Ill,” warning the listener to never forget who they are in this “lonely place.” “Ashamed, Being Alone” is another track touching on the theme of yearning, with acoustic and non-easily-defined instrumentation for lyrics about feeling lost in the world.
