Artist: YOSHIMIO
Title: Yunnan Colorfree
Format: CD/DVD
Label: Commmons
Country: Japan
Price: $47.00
"Japanese-only exclusive release, packaged in deluxe gatefold digipak. Yoshimio features Yoshimi from Boredoms/OOIOO w/guest vocals by Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth (which includes a cover of "Death Valley 69"). Musically its mostly a solo release by Yoshimi (featured on steel guitar, vocals, shell syntheizer, percussions, electric guitar, shaker, bell, whistle, drum machine, keyboards, drums, field recordings, etc.). The music is a soundtrack to a documentary movie of the same name; the movie focuses on the women of Yunnan, a remote area in southern China -- near Tibet, Laos, Myanmar and Vietnam. This movie (which is included as the DVD in this 2 disc set) is 42 minute film with various street shots of these Yunnan woman -- in the markets, looking at food, in the fields and just standing around in total elegance, in the most colorful clothing imaginable -- with no-narration or overt linear intention. Not exactly Sublime Frequencies style, but not that far off, either! And Yoshimios ethno-trance soundtrack works perfectly. DVD is NTSC region free; Color; Stereo."- Commmons
