[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 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.
