In continuing with our "weird weekend" tradition, today's artist comes directly from the world capital of weird, the one and only Japan.
Afrirampo is composed of two lovely ladies who call themselves Oni and Pikachu, and that is only the beginning of the awesomeness. These ladies are guttural, frantic, noisy, and somehow melodic. One thing is certain, if you listen closely enough, you can tell that the majority of what they do is extremely precise and purposeful, which takes them out of the annoying hipster "making noise for the sake of noise" category and into the energetic chaos awesomeness category.
Touring with big heads like Sonic Youth and Acid Mothers Temple, these girls have been rocking faces for the better part of this past decade.
And it may surprise you, but Oni and Pikachu are not unlike the majority of their counterparts in Japan, and are completely adorable, even at their most chaotic:
Energetic, creative, talented, attractive, chaotic.... the perfect recipe for turning my heart into absolute goo.
Yasashii's drumming is actually classified as an aphrodisiac in medical journals. Okay that's a lie, but it damn well should be!
