Mr Oizo: unreleased unfinished unpleasant
Posted by Moses Wiener
To have such a distinctive palette all your own as a musician is an accomplishment to be recognised in itself. I'm lucky enough to work in an office where I can play a new album from Mr Oizo beginning to end over the speakers, and I quickly heard someone say 'is this Mr Oizo?' when I did. I shan't detail the inflection with which that question was asked, but it doesn't matter anyway. Mr Oizo doesn't give a levitating fuck about whether you like his music or not.
'unreleased unfinished unpleasant' is an album of 12 random morsels accumulated between 2004-2012, and ironically for him, its one of his more 'listenable' albums. All the weird wibbles and electronic thudding that have become his salaciously sloppy hallmarks are present throughout.
