Starbow sounds awesome, thanks!

Sentimental Metallic Night's chorus reminds me of William Onyeabor

Can't Sleep sounds like an ELO production.

I really like the sound of three vocalists (at once?).

This piece led me to this song from 1998:



I stopped listening to Tats' music in the mid-1980s because I assumed it would trail off like most artists who had their heyday in the 1970s but I'm really digging this one. I have to listen to his recent discography now.

Catch the Nite from Miho Nakayama is simply one of the best pop albums I've heard, really excited to dive into more of her discography.

Through Miho Nakayama, I discovered that an artist named Cindy composed many songs for her. This album has Stevie Wonder and Hiroshi Satoh on it. Highly recommend the songs Spread The Love, Think Your Love Away, and You & I

if any of you Tatsuro Yamashita fans haven't heard the Niagara Triangle album, his first track ドリーミング・デイ is so insanely good, especially considering lots of ppl who like him haven't heard it

(couldn't find the studio version on youtube at all or i'd post!)

I reposted my prior post so it should be viewable now. Also stumbled on this song from the Moon Riders on Spotify, it's definitely more experimental in the vein of YMO than City Pop but super good. Album is from 1986
