Zubi Zuva - Jehovah
Thank God for the early to mid 90s Japanese experimental scene. "...this latest curveball from Ruins mastermind Yoshida Tatsuya is a work of insane genius. Zubi Zuva is a freewheeling a cappella vocal trio, running the gamut from Gregorian Chant and Buddhist Shomyo to doo-wop, hardcore and looney tunes -- of course, as usual, all in a language of Yoshida's invention. Essential listening for those interested in the outer limits of weirdness." Jehovah was released in 1996, and wonderfully blends humor with pure genius. Rather than describing their sound myself, or attempting to explain exactly why it is badass, I'll rely on this video to explain.
