Buffalo Daughter are renowned for popularising the Shibuya-kei genre, which collages together these sounds and moulds them into pop songs.

Konjac-Tion by Buffalo Daughter

8/10 Mike Staff review, 18 September 2014

Tokyo's Buffalo Daughter return this week with their seventh album. This lot are veterans of the city's Shibuya-kei scene which most famously spawned the likes of Pizzicato Five and duo Flipper's Guitar (one of whom subsequently went on to become the genre's producer-extraordinaire Cornelius). Buffalo Daughter are another of the genre (a strange cut-and-paste blend of synthpop, krautrock and yé-yé and easy-listening jazz) to have found exposure outside of Japan thanks to a brief tenure on the Beastie Boys' short-lived Grand Royal label.

On 'Konjac-tion' they offer up a new dose of this strange neon-tinged pop sound, dizzyingly dense and often quite weird but always very slickly constructed and charming, they flit from Britpop-ish indie to repetitive alien psychedelia full of sticky plasticky computerised beeps to trippy French-language hip hop, cold robotic techno and twitchy disco-funk. Despite being almost impossible to pin down genre-wise, it's surprisingly cohesive as an album; a technicolour magpie's nest of sparkly international pop that'll appeal to fans of the aforementioned Cornelius and Pizzicato Five. Plus there's a bonus CD of remixes with appearances from the likes of Cibo Matto, Nels Cline and Sean Lennon.
