Cornelius - Fantasma (1997) - New 2 LP Record 2016 Fat Possum USA Vinyl - Synth-pop / Indie Rock
UNCLE SHUG SAYS:
Listen, have you ever gotten some real gear-grinding, deepweb Food Network, full-on DGAF munchies so bad that you will mix anything concievably edible to satisy your high ass? Picture that, but instead of cramming your ma's homemade ravioli into the leftovers of a PB&J or even crazier, ordering pineapple on a pizza, your ears are getting a one-way ticket to the quintessential Flavortown (shout out to the mans Fieri) of potlucked nibbles and bites from just about every facet of music itself. Often compared to the likes of Beck and even the bowl cut lord of the studio himself, Brian Wilson, Keigo Oyamada AKA Cornelius, a musical savant hailing from Japan's own Tokyo is one of those few and far in-between artists that truly can make something so familiar feel so new, this example being the ability to play not just one single instrument, but the studio itself. Everything from Jazz, to Funk, to Post-Rock, to old instructional record samples are uncovered within the confines of these righteous grooves, creating a sense of understanding for misunderstanding, if you can get down with the get down. Originally released in '98, but finally back on slab of wax, Cornelius's Fantasma still shines bright as a beautiful, starry bullet point in the realm of the continuous musical evolution of humanity itself. Expect the unexpected. Just Do It. Nike. Get you some Cornelius. Etc.
