I have heard a few tracks by Saori@destiny recently. “Stainless Starlight” is a pretty straightforward synthpop thing, with heavily process voice and slightly retro synths. Apparently she’s seen as a successor to Aira Mitsuki. She’s got a way to go before she gets there.

Japanator Radio 83 included an old Buffalo Daughter track, “Discotheque du Paradis”. Very light and dreamy with a toe-tapping, head-nodding beat and a soft clear female vocal. For some reason I thought BD were a bit rockier than this — I don’t know if it was atypical. I shall have to investigate further.

Susumu Hirasawa’s “Lounge” sounds quite a lot like Enya with a synth. Quite a good combination, I must say. It comes from the Paprika soundtrack, whatever that is.
