Listen: YĪN YĪN releases new album 'The Rabbit That Hunts Tigers'
Today, Dutch psych/funk group YĪN YĪN release their new album 'The Rabbit That Hunts Tigers' via Les Disques Bongo Joe. With South-East Asian music from the '60s and '70s as their main inspiration, the group brew a strange cocktail made of disco grooves, powerful “thaï beat” tunes and spacious synths.
YĪN YĪN was founded by Kees Berkers, drummer of Baby Galaxy, and Yves Lennertz, guitarist of Bounty Island: two familiar faces in the Maastricht underground scene. Bringing their individual musical backgrounds and interests to the table, the recording spree resulted in a remarkable set of songs combining those Asian influences with disco, funk, and electronic music for a blend that they like to call "Thaichedelic". Listen to their new album below now.
YĪN YĪN will celebrate their new release with a performance at Le Guess Who? 2019 on Saturday, 9 November. Also performing at the festival are a.o. Asha Puthli, Dur-Dur Band, Minyo Crusaders, Lalalar, Arp Frique presents IMPROVISED SUITES FOR ANALOG MACHINES, Doug Hream Blunt, Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe, Gyedu-Blay Ambolley & His Sekondi Band, and many more.
