Puffy AmiYumi

Just two years ago, the expansive, wonderful world of East Asian pop was mostly a mystery to me I’m embarrassed to admit, I didn’t know Ayumi Hamasaki from Hitomi Shimatani.

Puffy AmiYumi: Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi

Puffy AmiYumi takes bellwether Beatles riffs and dresses them in the sonic accoutrements of their '70s imitators -- the arena-sized bombast of Cheap Trick, the sci-fi sound effects of ELO, the happy harmonies of Abba, the hyperhookiness of the Raspberries -- to create karaoke-ready J-pop.
