When you listen to Woom, you think of pop contemporaries that have completely changed the sound of indie music like Animal Collective, Tune-Yards, and Micachu and the Shapes. Woom generates music that is timeless as it is strange and new.
‘Muu’s Way’, out this summer on Ba Da Bing, showcases the fruits of Eben Portnoy and Sara Magenheimer’s 6-year collaboration. Beneath its incredibly detailed DIY production brims a wild, uncontainable energy. Skittering beats, deep-diving bass, crumbling guitars and crackling voices swarm around exceptionally unique pieces.
This is the last of four video loops based on the seasons commissioned by the Berkeley Art Museum. This one is Winter and was screened in conjunction with the exhibition, Flowers of the Four Seasons: Ten Centuries of Art from the Clark Center for Japanese Art and Culture, and curated by Tomo Yasuda.
Music “Under Muu” by WOOM from the album “Muu’s Way” Badabing Records 2010.
