Buffalo Daughter - The Weapons of Math Destruction

Latest album from Buffalo Daughter.
This was definitely in my favorites of 2010 -- and probably my favorite release so far from BD.
The vocals on this are just so smooth -- Sugar & Yumiko Ohno bounce back and forth/together so well, and even with the absence of MoOoG (vocally), they gained ex-Cibo Matto vocalist Miho Hatori, who compliments "The Battle Field In My Head"...probably my favorite BD track to date (re: hawt).
Per their person, the album mixes it up fresh track to track -- some angular instrumentals, some skewed beats; just generally the same lovable stylized weirdness that won me over in the first place -- just blown up to bigger proportions.

Thanks so much for posting this - I'd buy Buffalo D's records if I could, but they're impossible to track down outside of Japan these days it seems (at an affordable price anyway).

They're a great band, it's a real shame so few people care about them... x
