Radio Show: Japanese Pop

23 Jan

katamaridamacy.tumblr.comI dug up another episode of “Analog Oatmeal” from 2009, featuring an hour and 15 minutes of the cutest and raddest Japanese twee and electro pop I could find.

Download here!

EDIT: Dr. Kelp reports that most of these bands fall into the shibuya-kei genre, originating in the Shibuya district of Tokyo. Thanks, Kelp!
