♫♪  Yves Tumor - “Noid”

Yves Tumor is a trickster, deftly perverting the conventions of soul, a beautiful corruption that produces unease as well as fascination. His first single since signing to Warp Records about a year ago, “Noid” recalls that other trickster, the pizza-ruining motherfucker from the Domino’s Pizza ads (yes…I’m sure that’s what Yves was intending). Seriously though, Yves has fashioned an accessible standout here, complete with shuffling breakbeat and mangled strings. The song is an illustrated cacophony, Yves repeating the lyrics like a mantra, anxiety ablaze as sirens and screams launch around him.

Don’t avoid this “Noid!”
