Here is Moro's explanation about this album:

"Hi there, this is PIMO's 2nd album called "Yamete!".
Yamete means "Stop it!" in Japanese. A lot of Japanese words are used in this album this time."

Track #1: Yamete!
""Sekuhara" is an abbreviation for "Sexual Harassment". So "Sekuhara Yamete!" means "Stop sexual harassing". PIMO always feel being harassed in many ways; not necessary sexual, but this lyrics naturally came out. I made a melody & Pixy started rapping; the first time rapping for PIMO. "Kimoi Ojisan" means "creepy old man". Kinda inspired by 90's Japanese Band "Tama" who used a lot of dialog in their songs."

Track #2: Aiueo
"Pixy was leaning Japanese on the train & she started singing the melody & recorded the demo on the phone & I put chords later. She found the last "Wawon" sounds interesting & just wanted to say it with her low voice. It's kind of like ABCD... song in Japanese."

Track #3: Souieba
"The intro melody was borrowed from Japanese folk song, but I didn't know the song well & I was singing with completely wrong melody, chord & lyrics which I kinda created on my own.

"Souieba" is the word people say when people suddenly remembered something; kind of like "Come to think of it" in English. The song is about a mother who sew a pair of red gloves spending whole night for her child, just like the original lyrics.

The middle part was UK rock style, but I put upright bass instead of electric bass & it started sounded like Cuban-ish music."

Track #4: Banana Banana
"Pixy made this song while she was eating banana. This song is actually kinda tricky to play when the melody alternate rhythm. You can also hear the latin clave rhythm in it elsewhere."

Track #5: Mimoku
"One of my favorite track in the album. Originally, I wanted make this sounds like the broken tape like sound, but it became more interesting than I expected.
The drums was kinda inspired by Thom Yorke's "The Mother Lode", but this is all played acoustically by my hands.

"Mimoku" is a Chinese word for "Long Johns" & "Mimose" is "Sweater".
I found these words sound cute & imaging Mimoku is a boy & Mimose is a girl. This is a love song about them."

Track #6: Nyanko-chan

"Nyanko-chan is a nickname for kitten in Japanese. Nyan is the sound of a cat cry in Japan, like Nyan-cat.

This song is about a kitty in estrus cycle. She keeps crying & left her owner & going to street.
"Nyan Nyan Nyan Nyan Uruse-ndayo!" means "Nyan Nyan .... Shut the fuck up!" (said by neighbor).

It used to be 2 songs. Not as dramatic as Beatles' "A Day in The Life" connecting 2 songs into 1, but kinda similar. Also inspired by Zazen Boy's song "Potato Salad"."

Track #7: Don't Let the Small Animals Stay in the Cold Weather

"It's connected from the last song coz I thought there are some connections in songs.

One night, PIMO were walking on street in Brooklyn & found 3 little black kitties hanging out in front of library & I started imagining if they would be okay in the cold winter outside.

We also felt some connections & similarities between us & kitties. After I came home on that night & instantly wrote this song."

Track #8: Taj Mahal is The Best

"There was an Indian restaurant called Taj Mahal where we used to live & I made this song after PIMO had a dinner delivered from them one night. (then I thought Taj Mahal is the best coz the curry was good.)
"Kiss me, Kiss me..." part was a different song, but since it was in the same key, it became one song after all. This song is about Taj Mahal King & Queen."

Track #9: We Were on The Moon

"One of the earliest song I made in this album. PIMO has been playing this song since our 3rd gig at Goodbye Blue Monday in Bushwick, which doesn't exist anymore.

One day, I saw a news that NASA found a trace of water in Mars & I start imagining maybe people used to live there & we had to move to earth because of air pollution or war etc & we just don't remember what happened in the past.

Track #10: Kimini Aini Ikukara Kitto Mattete NE-!

"I made this song in my dream, like I composed "Is It?" from our last EP. I have a background music in my dream & sometimes I still remember even after I wake up & I usually record the demos.

I think I was having a scary dream about ghost & I got up 3 or 4 am in the morning & I recorded the demo in the dark feeling fucking scared.

Lyrics means "I'm going to see you, so please wait for me", which also freaks me out. (This dream came with lyrics...)

Arrangement is like the backward of tape. Drums is reversed in some parts & mixed with the original one. The guitar riff is 5/8 & it alternates in every chorus.

I thought this would be a good ending for this album coz it kinda flash back the whole album."

注意!
このアルバムは良い音質をできるだけキープするため、他のPOP音楽と比べると音量がやや小さめになっております。パソコンか、他のデバイスで聞くときには音量を上げることをお勧めします。

以下、モロよりアルバムについてのコメント。

”あ、どうも。モロです。ここではアルバムの紹介をしたいと思います。Yamete!はPIMOの2ndアルバムで、前回のアルバムと比べて日本語の曲が多くなっています。”

#1Yamete!:”まず最初の曲、Yamete!ですが、PIMOは最近いろんな意味でセクハラされていると感じることが多く、歌詞も勝手に出てきた感じです。ラップ(話す所)の部分はピクシーが作りました。大好きなバンド”たま”にちょっと影響された曲です。

#2Aiueo:PixyがNYの帰りの地下鉄で日本語の勉強をしてるときに突然メロディーを歌いだして、それをケータイに録音して、あとで僕がコードをつけました。一応上の英語の説明にはABCD...のアルファベット覚える曲みたいな感じに説明してあります。

#3Souieba:そういえば。これは聞いてわかると思いますが、有名な”かあさんの歌”からメロディーを借りています。オリジナルとはメロディーもコードも歌詞もかなり違うんですが、これは僕がよく原曲を知らなかったので、自分なりに勝手に変えて歌っていたためです。

真ん中の部分はUKロックっぽくしようと思ったのですが、エレキベースの代わりにウッドベースを入れた為か、全体的にキューバの音楽みたいになりました。

#4Banana Banana:これはピクシーが本当にバナナを食べている時に突然歌いだした曲です。メロディーのリズムが一部逆さまになる部分があって実は演奏がちょっとトリッキーな曲です。所々ラテンのClaveのリズムが聞いてとれると思います。


#5Mimoku:このアルバムでお気に入りの曲の一つです。
最初は壊れたテープみたいなアレンジにしようと思っていたら、それ以上の面白いものができた気がします。
ドラムはトム・ヨークの”"The Mother Lode"”という曲に影響を受けた感じがしますが、あれは完全にエレクトロの音楽ですが、これは全て僕の手でアコースティックでインプロビゼーションしています。

ちなみに、Mimokuは上海語?でももひきの意味でMimoseはセーターの意味。
ミモクとミモセって何か発音が可愛いので、僕の中でミモクを男の子、ミモセを女の子でイマジネーションしていて、これはその二人のラブソングになっています。

#6.Nyanko-chan:これは発情期の子猫が隣人に怒鳴られて家出して町をほっつき歩く、みたいな曲。2つの曲をくっつけて1つにした曲。ビートルズの”A Day in the Life”ほどドラマティックじゃないけど、そんな感じ。Zazen Boyzのポテサラの曲にもちょっと影響を受けました。

#7Don't Let the Small Animals Stay in the Cold Weather:歌詞がなんとなくつながりがあると思ったので、前の曲と繋がっています。
ある晩PIMOがブルックリンの道を歩いていると、3匹の子黒猫が図書館の前で遊んでいて、”ああ、もうすぐ冬だから大変だろうな”と思って、何かPIMOといろいろ似てるな、と感じて、この曲を作りました。

#8Taj Mahal is The Best:昔PIMOが住んでいた所の近くにタージマハルというカレー屋があって、そこから夕飯のオーダーをした時に作った曲。そのときのカレーが本当においしかったからタージマハル最高、みたいな歌詞だったけど、今はタージマハルの王様と女王様についての歌詞。これもたまたま調が同じだったから2つの曲をくっつけた曲。

#9We Were on The Moon:アルバムの中でたぶん一番昔に作った曲。ライブのみでやってた曲で、ブッシュウィックのGoodbye Blue Monday(もうない。)というライブハウスで始めて披露した曲。

ニュースでNASAが火星に水があった痕跡を確認した、っていうのを見て、もしかしたら人間は昔実は火星に住んでて、そのころはもっと地球みたいに綺麗だったけど、戦争とか環境汚染で地球に移ってきて、でもその証拠はもうどこにもない、、、とか勝手なイマジネーションして作った曲。

#10Kimini Aini Ikukara Kitto Mattete NE-!: 夢の中で作曲した曲。前のEPの”Is It?”と同じく、僕の夢にはよくBGMが付いてることがあって、時々起きてもまだメロディーを覚えていたり。。この曲はけっこう怖い夢を見てて、朝の4時頃真っ暗闇の中ビクビクしながらデモを録音しました。

アレンジはレコードが逆再生されてる感じ。これを聞くとアルバムの曲がフラッシュバックされるので、最後の曲にしました。
