"You're the Same Kofi Fool,
Genre: experimental pop, lo-fi,
Dec 8, 2008
The second record on Israeli micro-label Defekt Records, You're
the Same Kofi Fool, Creep! is a bizarre journey orchestrated by
Lafi and drummer Adi Gelbart. This is dark and strange
child-pop distinctly reminiscent of Young Marble Giants' work.
Guitar chimes are sent reverberating as Lafi's cute vocals take
the stage. Weird synths are thrown in to accentuate the topsy-turvy
atmosphere, while Gelbart's percussion is simple but effective.
Among the better tracks are zippy "You're the Same," infectious
toy-popper "Kofi" and schmaltzy "Creep." Given this record is only six
songs long, and its lengthiest track clocks in at two minutes and
eighteen seconds, this a very brief sampling with which to get
acquainted with Lafi's brand of weirdo pop. Both fortunately
and unfortunately, it leaves you wanting more.
