I heard this band first on last.fm, and recently heard a few more of their songs on Japanator Radio. Jaunty! Lightweight! Quirky! It’s that Shibuya sound that I just can’t get enough of. Love Giraffe for example — cute, sweet and fun, and that’s just the title! Then there’s Red Car, which is much more sophisticated — it reminds me of Miss Kittin. And their version of Erik Satie’s First Gymnopidie strikes just the right balance between eccentric, and very eccentric.

Their earlier album Pull the Rabbit Ears is not quite as good, really. Except for the title and cover, which are awesome.
