Nobuko Hori’s debut album finds the visual artist and song remixer pushing her keen aesthetic senses of sound and vision full throttle. Her debut album, xtoyourmilkyhair, finds Hori pushing her keen aesthetic senses full throttle. From a collagist’s viewpoint, Hori succeeds. Her cut-and-paste debauchery on songs such as “Talk to You” and “Nuine” meshes experimental pop with blaring electronics and doubled chants while altogether eschewing any linear cohesiveness. She even manages to tone it down a bit with hushed vocals and chiming keys for the bedtime-sounding lullaby “OOO,” but her thirst for detuned gadgetry will make it an all-nighter.
