Naofumi Ishimaru most notably took Yximalloo to notoriety when they played a gig at the lavatory in Honda's factory in Japan.
Listen to music from Yximalloo like Any Sense, Yximalloo Tribe's Ensemble & more. Find the latest tracks, albums, and images from Yximalloo. Yximalloo is Naofumi Ishimaru alone, but he drafts a loose ensemble of players, including the core of Shigeo Ootake and Takashi Korgo (who appear on all discs), as rs. All of his releases are on his own label, and none have seen a distributor yet (which is why you very rarely find his CDs in stores).
Yximalloo is a one-man mysterious phenomenon. He has maintained obscurity, even though he has been making and recording music since the 1970's and his champions include artists as diverse as Jad Fair (Half Japanese), Momus, and members of Animal Collective. This is Yximalloo's first recording in 9 years, and it is his first to include his one-man-band sound of guitar, laptop and vocals. It builds on his primitive trance-like rhythms mixed with offbeat pop sensibilities by way of crude electronic sampling. A true masterpiece, a modern-day Moondog off the streets of present-day Tokyo,.
