PLVS VLTRA is the new project from TOKO YASUDA, best known for her work in the band ENON, and, more recently, a touring member of ST. VINCENT. Her first solo album, Parthenon was released from Spectrum Spools / Editions Mego in 2012, and featured experiemental electronic pop music. Expanding on her sound, she released the largely instrumental cassette, Yo-Yo Blue on Field Hymns earlier this year. For her new single, Yasuda drew inspiration from J Dilla and his use of an MPC sampler, Echo Park sunsets, cheese toast, and tea. “I had fun making this music in my own comfort zone, in my own room.” The result is an assault of electronic pop and sample laden hooks that is at times both light as a feather and staggering. Yasuda now resides in a Los Angeles hilltop, where the chameleon sunsets are the endless muse in her very own brand of California sound. Covers were screen printed and vinyl was cut by the great JOHN HULL on his 1944 Scully lathe at Musicol Recording Studio in Columbus, Ohio. Edition of 500 copies.   “...Plvs Vltra’s sound is sugary synth pop, with some salty experimental coating for contrast. Obviously the more outright screwy parts are more interesting, but the whole project seems off-centre enough to merit attention and there are bits that inexplicably remind me of early 1970s Robert Wyatt.”—Byron Coley (The Wire)
