Reissue of Akiko Yano's debut album Japanese Girl from WEWANTSOUNDS. First released in 1976, Japanese Girl mixes together elements of Japanese folk music with 70s rock and funk to create something hypnotic. Yano's vocals dance around the instrumentation with a sense of joy and yearning, providing an emotional anchor for the album.

Staff note from Daoud :
Akiko Yano's voice is so athletic and precise, it bounces like a giddy child over instrumentation full of funky piano and BIG drums. Word round the office is it sounds something like if Kate Bush was Japanese but I'm not enough of a Bush expert to agree or disagree. What I do know is that it's completely wonderful.
