Price : 13.50 € - BUY
Description :YOKAI : Japanese term referring to the surreal world of demons, spirits, bizarre entities –as humorous as they can be frightening- that interact with humans, sometimes through their dreams, to draw attention to the unseen(able) side of things.

Created in Brussels Belgium in 2011, Yôkaï is currently boasting a line-up of 8 multi-instrumentalists out of jazz, rock & improvisation scenes. Their music travels through delicate compositions, hypnotic grooves and coarse improvisations, exposing the listener to a novel blend of jazz, ethnic music and psychedelia.

Sentinelle – the band's lastest EP featuring 4 original compositions, recorded in 2 distinct sessions in 2019 and 2017 - shows a transition from the previous album universe to new musical directions explored in their forthcoming record, more electronic and cinematic, to be released in autumn 2021. A-side brings a sombre atmosphere, perfect soundtrack to our confined pandemic nights while B-side 2017's outakes take us back to a joyfull and colourfull world in which one could dance the night away ! Entre les Roseaux (understand Between the Reeds) reminds us of the band's first love for ethio-jazz while Llamada por Cobrar (Return Call) truely is a ‘fake mariachi song', originally played in Yokai's early years as a introduction and/or presentation song in squats and crowded local venues. With its dark drones and satured synth layers Sentinelle & Désir Chimique sonically pave the way for the band's next full LP. See you after summer then ?

Hard to pigeonhole, Yokai's music manages to find a fresh spot between ethio-jazz, Ennio Morricone's soundtracks, 70's psych-rock and french composer François de Roubaix subtle harmonies.

This new release is presented on a 10-inch vinyl, artwork & drawings by Joal Grange. Limited to 300 copies.
