ROMO ROTO deliver glorious headaches

romo roto
Tape loops are not dead. Ask Romo Roto. Neither apparently are boomboxes. Combine these two things, add singer Alexandra Mackenzie – whose voice recalls Karen O in her more frantic moments – and you have Romo Roto. They sound like the Yeah Yeah Yeahs being buried under an avalanche of bongos. A horrible accident in a drum shop, OR, the best thing to have happened to pop music in the last 5 years? I leave it up to you. At first jarring, Romo Roto’s blasts of noise become hypnotic, drone-like. I advise you to visit their Myspace. They advise you to bring Ibuprofen.
