For their unexpectedly oddball “Omar K” video, L.A. couple Danny and Tiffany Preston, aka Rainbow Arabia, took their Basta EP tune into a grocery store where a mom and her kid Gang Gang Danced-away their demonic possession. “Haunted Hall,” from the forthcoming mini-LP Kabukimono, continues the supernatural theme, though we don’t currently have any moving images to go with it. It was produced by Pit Er Pat’s Butchy Fuego and, like last time, sounds like someone overlaying colorful electronics and new wave beats and a Sublime Frequencies compilation (or, fair enough, a compilation of Arabic music not stamped by Alan Bishop). The results aren’t necessarily distinctive, but it’s a fun hodgepodge.

Kabukimono is out 7/26 via Manimal Vinyl.

  1. Stereogum wants you to know that it considers Sun City Girls to be pedestrian. Huh?

    sometimes hipsters just take it too far

  3. I loved the video for omar k. they use mythology and tribal aesthetics in their album art and videos, which i enjoy. can’t wait for kabukimono.

    I agree, sometimes hipsters take it too far. but funnily enough people seem to dig almost everything that smells hip these days. let’s face it, two years ago everyone would have agreed that this is rubbish.

  5. shit is pretty awesome mate, i’m excited to hear more
