Cibo Matto, Crazy food in Italian. This pair of New York based Japanese musicians managed to make all of there food themed songs rather heartbreaking. I used to listen to them quite a bit, and admit that hearing them now rings a strong note of nostalgia.

The music is all quite heavily rooted in atmosphere, less music and more tone. The long drawn out opening suggests intimacy, and evokes the scent of love, not for another, but instead the love of ones own habits. the familiarity of loneliness.

Then again there is also this, this is the first cibo Matto song I ever heard. I was twenty I think. Shortly after I hunted down all of their works. Check out the amazing but sadly unembeddable video of Know your chicken here.
