Cibo Matto's new comeback LP, Hotel Valentine, deals with ghosts, romance and, yes, a hotel. That says something about the startlingly original pop/hip-hop/electronic-music duo consisting of vocalist Miho Hatori and keyboardist Yuka C. Honda, who reunited in 2011 after a decade-long break. The pair isn’t interested in going light or broad on its first post-retirement album; the record finds Hatori and Honda inhabiting the same zany headspace that made their ’90s work so endearing. Get an earful at Brooklyn Bowl.
