SLEEVE NOTES:
“Japanese Pop Stars ‘Controlling Your Allegiance’ : Release Date 19/06, Virgin
Since The Japanese Popstars first tasted success in 2006 with their first two releases on a small indie dance label, their career has been one smooth, upward curve. First single, ‘Destroy’, featured a compelling vocal from Jon Spencer (of Blues Explosion fame) set atop a brooding slab of nu-electro that climaxes in an unholy riot of angry synths. They then had the idea of enlisting The Cure’s Robert Smith for one of the rough edits. Fortunately, Robert went onto the band’s MySpace site, loved what he heard and said he wanted to work with the boys. The result is ‘Take Forever’, which, with its chiming guitar riff, low-slung bass and feint air melancholia, is a quantum leap from anything that was on ‘We Just Are’. Other names to get the special Japstars treatment include Mercury Prize-nominated singer-songwriter Lisa Hannigan, Editors lead singer Tom Smith, recording his icy vocals for ‘Joshua’ in Dean Street Studios and James incent McMorrow. Perhaps their favourite track of all, ‘Fight The Night’, features Morgan Kibby, the American vocalist with French nugazers-cum-seventies revivalists, M83. The result, a debut album that scales the heights of dance music collaborations from Ireland to Japan and back again!
