The eccentric U.K. art pop duo Omo consist of Berit Immig (also a member of the eccentric U.K. art pop band the Chap) and conceptual/experimental visual artist David Muth. Having previously played together in the group Karamasov (along with the Chap's Johannes Von WeizsÃ¤cker), Immig and Muth began their collaboration in 2004, utilizing "small instruments" to construct the curious electronic/acoustic pieces which they describe as "domestic pop for domestic occasions" -- genially simple but decidedly strange songs which recall elements of retro lounge music, library music, Krautrock, and abstract electronica, among other styles, with a wryly deadpan lyrical focus on everyday objects and occurrences. Following a handful of compilation appearances and live shows (their first performance occurring at the Berlin Aquarium over the duration of a lunch break), their debut record -- cheekily titled The White Album -- was released by Lo Alternative Frequencies in 2009, alongside a split 7" single with the Chap. ~ K.
