Cacoy is a Japanese electro trio possibly named for a Filipino martial arts legend and signed to a Danish record label. Their song Piracle Pa doesnâ€™t seem to be from any language, but the soothing organ and lilting female vocals sound like French/Canadian/British indie-pop darlings Stereolab. â€œYoko Majikick Onoâ€ seems to be named for the Japanese-born U.S. resident, and with its rubbery, buoyant cornucopia of digital burps, it sounds like a track from U.S.-born Josh Presseisenâ€™s Japanese-named project, Marumari. In other words, it makes for good listening no matter where you lay your headphones.

sounds a little like vocalist in Deerhoof
Or it could be a play on ‘kakkoii.’
Bizarre, yet strangely compelling. I have to say, I'm rather fond of them now.
hmmm…that’s very interesting. “kakkoii” means “cool,” and cacoy are definitely cool. but so is Ciriaco “Cacoy” CaÃ±ete!
These guys are martial arts champions. I fyou like this you should really check out Tenniscoats. They really are subdued pop wonders!
