Synopsis

Product Description
"Let's have fun" is one of the main warcalls in popular music. Or so it should be, even before "let's make art". Linn Youki have decided to apply this literally to their new and awaited fourth album. It's not that they were specially twisted, dark or serious in their previous releases, as they have always been absolutely open minded in their work. But in "#04", creative freedom reaches its peak in all its splendour. And, maybe for the first time, we find an album made without any concession to "what will the people like" and with no arty background, but the result of hours spent by three friends in their practice place who just want to laugh, enjoy being together and let their daily grey currency in Barcelona apart. No artistic pressure, no "look at me" attitude. Just let's have fun. As it is their blueprint, "#04" is vertebrated by curious and funny samplers, dressed with real and virtual instruments, without notice of where's the frontier between them, with the extra flavour of their own voices, which have been used for the first time amongst samples. They still seem to make music for cartoons, as it happened since the beginning. Maybe that's their reason to exist: music made by and for children, though played and arranged with the most mature and modern production techniques. And their fantastic yet naive sound makes them brilliantly original and genious. We can assure nobody else sounds like them.
