Dinked 172 comes from London-based psych project Yama Warashi, the recording project of ex-Zun Zun Egui member Yoshino Shigihara. Following the break-up of raucous experimental psych-rockers Zun Zun Egui, Shigihara set about starting a solo career with an altogether more meditative sound. Bristol-based for most of her career, Shigihara recently moved to London, introducing her to a whole new diverse scene of musicians to collaborate with. The result is Crispy Moon, an album of huge textural and musical contrasts, enlisting the musical talents of Vanishing Twin’s Cathy Lucas and Mermaid Chunky’s Moina Walker, amongst others, to create an expansive and wide reaching sonic landscape which stretches from Afrobeat rhythms to moments of transcendent noise. Crispy Moon is released on May 27th by PRAH Recordings.
The Dinked Edition of Crispy Moon is on 350 limited and hand numbered yellow LP with an exclusive obi strip and flexi-disc with an exclusive track.
