Japanese noise artist Yuko Araki (YobKiss, Kuunatic, Concierto de la Familia) is set to release her debut album titled II via boutique tape label Commando Vanessa on October 17th. This is a follow-up to her previous EP release titled I. The album is made up of five incredible tracks that create an intense soundscape. It’s a great synaptic ride.

With II, Yuko Araki delivers an album of multifaceted noise fused synthscapes mixing pulsating rhythmic sound frequencies and powerful synthetic sonic layers. Her exceptional sensibility in processing extremely heavy and dense sounds makes the result sounding like nothing else you heard before: a thousand leaves oscillation sound at the same time rooted in Japanese noise but also totally different.”

Today we have the pleasure of streaming the album in its entirety. Check it out below.
