[RRR197] Vlantis – Urotanki EP

Vlantis - Urotanki EP

Vlantis is the solo project from Joe Jacobs, a USA native who moved to Japan back in 2006. Finding bands was a difficult experience, and so this led to Jacobs collaborating with individuals to bring unique diversity to each of his Vlantis recordings.

His previous release (which can be heard on vlantis.bandcamp.com) was a dark ethnic instrumental album, which is perhaps the polar opposite of Urotanki, his first Rack & Ruin release.

Urotanki is a wonderfully upbeat fun pop EP, where Jacobs collaborates with a Japanese vocalist and an exceptional guitar player, producing this extraordinary release which will sit proudly as our final release of 2010.

Musically it is a rollercoaster, high energy keyboard anthems with cutesy Japanese female vocals, often interspersed with Jacobs cutting in – not unlike Bjork and Einar in the Sugarcubes. 2010 may be over, but it has gone out with a bang not a whimper.
