I have been listening to more Japanese bands lately, and discovered loads of great music. I've especially been loving Miaou, a Tokyo-based group. I had the chance to see them performing live in a small, albeit packed Shimokitazawa venue, and they blew my mind. Their sound could be described as instrumental, dream-pop, mixing guitars and synth for a pretty sonic mash-up.
