Porno Graffitti “Rhinoceros” (SME)

Two songs into Porno Graffitti’s 10th album, “Rhinoceros,” and I can confirm that keeping up with the times isn’t the Hiroshima duo’s strong point. “Oh! Ribaru” melds Spanish-tinged accordion and Japanese lyrics together with a flurry of faux-EDM flourishes, including an Avicii-aspired passage. It’s one of the clunkiest bids at being “with it” you’ll hear in Japanese music all year.
