The Boredom of Me

by Yoome

Yoome is a collaborative project of Chicago rapper Serengeti, New Zealand indie-folk princess Renee Louise Carafice, and Chicago producer Tony Trimm. Through a sardonic, lo-fi approach, Yoome delivers irresistibly sweet and sour morsels of melodrama.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"If you think that this album won't hold your interest judging by its title, let The Boredom of Me serve as proof that supposedly mundane lives make great case studies. A collaborative effort between rapper Serengeti, Renee-Louis Carafice, and producer Tony Trimm, YOOME flips pop music inside out to expose its innards and imperfections. Lo-fi electronics set the stage for Serengeti and Carafice to act out stories of regret, indifference, and separation." -Impose Magazine-

"The Boredom of Me sprung from a handful of intense sessions: "I was just trying to write myself out of some [problems]," Serengeti has said, noting that while "Amsterdamn" is fictionalized, the experience creating it was "really dark." It shows, but so does the catharsis." -NPR-

"Yoome is artsy and obscure. Dark synths, built upon by poetic vocals. This isn't a singing band. The lead "rhymer" speaks in verse that is mind blowing. Lyrical content that will make you go, "Woah, how did he think of that?" This album is brilliant." -PluginMusic.com-

"Let’s look at the facts. There’s Renee-Louise Carafice (credited as Renee-Louis Carafice on this album), a New Zealand songstress with a sweet voice whose two self-described hobbies are “music and making bicycles” and who once spent a week in a mental institution in Auckland for depression. There’s Serengeti (born David Cohn), a prolific Chicago rapper who specializes in creating characters and embodying them across multiple songs while telling stories through their eyes. There’s Tony Trimm, a music video director and DJ, also based out of Chicago, who wears the occasional hat of producer. And then there’s Yoome, the collaboration between these three extremely talented artists that takes the best elements of each and manages to craft one of the most original and thought-provoking albums of the year." -Stereo Subversion-
