Formed in 2001, Ogre You Asshole originally took influences from groups like Modest Mouse, Talking Heads and Can. But how would you define the lead single from their 6th full-length album, “Paper Craft” (ペーパークラフト)?
Sweet vocals, exotic repetitive percussion, and jazzy sax – all accompanied by a clay animation created by the band’s singer and guitarist, Manabu Deto. “Muda ga Naitte Subarashii” is a remarkable song from a remarkable Japanese band.
