Optiganally Yours - 1998 - Spotlight On

Rob Crow and Pea Hix make dreamy, whimsical pop songs centering around the Optigan organs of the 70s. This album has a real timeless feel. Unlike anything I've heard, aside from their other album! Don't pass it up!

Tatsuhiko Asano - 2008 - Spacewatch

In 2008 Tatsuhiko Asano released the follow-up to his debut masterpiece, 'Genny Haniver', which I posted here last June.
This album is more of the same, but in this case, it's a good thing!
Emotive, full of beautiful textures and truly memorable.
You're going to want this in your collection!

Get it here.

Sucrette - 2009 - Bon Voyage

"Sucrette. is a shibuya kei revivalist-french pop-bossas-and even picopop duo that comes from Kyoto.
Shiho on vocals with her whispering and childish voice.
With Hidetaka Okuda on keyboards and programming."

Their music is sugary sweet.
Somehow relaxing and energizing simultaneously.
Perfect for cats on bicycles!

Get it here!
