Originally released last year in the UK, this third album from Brighton trio Fujiya & Miyagi is a time and continent-tripping release of electro-pop goodness. The group takes musical cues from all directions (including kraut, funk, pop, and IDM), then stir them all together and spit them out the other side in a semi-austere form that's a blast at times and sometimes a bit too clean for its own good. Instead of the Vapors turning Japanese, the group instead admits (lyrically, of course) to, "pretending to be Japanese," and that genre dash n' grab is plenty clear in their concise album.
