Cornelius – Point

Print More

Keigo Oyamada, a.k.a. Cornelius (a moniker borrowed from the head monkey in Planet of the Apes) creates a profound soundscape of bright guitar strumming and funky drum grooves combined with sweet noise melodies and vocals on his latest release, Point. Through his mastery of production techniques, song-writing, and guitar-playing, Keigo replaces the jarring, raucous qualities of the angst-ridden rock on his first U.S. release, Fantasma, with smoother, refined characteristics of melodious yet funky rock.
