Here's another excellent Japanese weird record. Yapoos was a project of Jun Togawa.At first glance, it's pleasant but unchallenging, Art Of Noise sounding synthpop with Togawa's powerful, acrobatic vocals on top. Bouncy if occasionally dark, not too far removed from many of the band's equally synth crazed Western peers.This is one of those albums that gets more impressive the deeper you go, revealing textures and atmospheres that are virtually impossible to catch in a casual, put-it-on-while-doing-housework listen. While it's obvious non-Japanese speakers can't get the full impact, the music accentuates and carries the narrative arc with enough drama that a vague idea is more than enough. Well worth seeking out.( parts of this review taken from Jrawk website, read the whole review here).
