Rainbow Arabia’s KabukimonoEP was originally released on Manimal Recordsin 2009.After releasing The Basta, Kabukimono saw Rainbow Arabia expand their sample library beyond the Arabic inflection of their earliest work.Kabukimonofinds the band effectively building upon its unique brew of exotic synths, south-of-the-equator dance beats, and post-punk songwriting sensibilities. There’s certainly some cultural tourism going on—Kabukimonohops between the Middle East, Africa, Southeast Asia, and Latin America with little regard for traditional memes and Tiffany Preston’s affected vocals occasionally border on mimicry—but the music is undeniably enjoyable.
