With Japan’s economic boom of the 1980s came the neon wonderlands of metropolises like Tokyo and Osaka. These futuristic cities, all bright lights and new money, needed a soundtrack, and in the genre of City Pop they got one. An amalgamation of electro-funk, r 'n' b, techno-pop and soul, City Pop’s quirky style has worn well and now shows up in the aesthetics of culture-vultures like Mac Demarco and Ariel Pink. On this double-LP, Cultures of Soul chronicle some of the best female exponents of the genre.
