icollecttapes Best YĪN YĪN Album ever (and I like every YĪN YĪN Album). Favorite track: One Inch Punch.

JP-3 this might be one of the most interesting sounds i've yet to come across. it's funky, it's tropical, it's almost got a spaghetti western feel to it. but then blend all that up with a psychedelic surf rock jam band...and you still need to listen to it to understand, lol. Favorite track: Pingpxng.

vaaern I'll admit that I've been listening to the KEXP session of these guys for a while and I felt kinda bad I never listened to the full album. This is just incredible stuff and it doesn't fail to make me smile. Seriously talented musicians, I only wish some songs were longer because they are so great! Best purchase in a long time! Favorite track: Sui Ye.

about

Where to place YĪN YĪN on the map ? Maybe somewhere between Netherlands and South-East Asia, on an imaginary tropical island. That’s where they brew a strange cocktail made of discogrooves, powerful “thaï beat” tunes and experimental tropi-synths. After two remarkable singles on Les Disques Bongo Joe, they’re back with « The Rabbit That Hunts Tigers ». Made of groovy tunes and dance killers, this album could be the crazy soundtrack of a 60s hippie village on the South China Sea.

Yīn Yīn passed last months burning scenes and make people dance around Europe. But they found just enough time to record this first tape in a ballet school in a remote village near the Alpaca Mountain. Kees Berkers and Yves Lennertz were the puppet masters of this in-studio experience. The result is a landscape where rabbits chase after tigers, an upside-down world were you'll definitely dance for ever.

Due for October 18th, still on Les Disques Bongo Joe, this twelve songs gem will warm you up during the cold season !! Release party is planned at Le Guess Who ? Novembre 9th ! Don't miss it !!!
