YPY ‎– Be A Little More Selfish

YPY ‎– Be A Little More Selfish

$20.00

Osaka’s YPY, aka Koshiro Hino, presents his much anticipated third full-length album, Be A Little More Selfish, for EM Records. The leader of progressive rhythm band Goat and operator behind sundry tape label birdFriend operates from a unique beat niche: his debut solo exploration (and previous for EM), 2016's Zurhyrethm covered hypnotic rhythmic looping patterns; Koshiro moved into headier realms with 2017's 2020 via Where to Now?.

In his new outing, YPY takes his penchant for intricate and intertwining meters and propels them into futuristic, melody-dripping grooves that encourage an eternal swim. From chugging marches (“Guilty Pants”), to lilting and bubbling sonic dribbles (“It’s Not So Bad I think”); playful, springy concoctions like “Resom Plants” to atmospheric techno swirls like “All Wounds” – Be A Little is brain fertilizer for time signature sticklers, hypnotic groove-riders and deft daydreamers alike. Closer “Games #2 p-type” is most reminiscent of Zurhyrethm, slowly circling regular time like a bird of prey.
