New indiepop in the mail! Sucrette’s new album Bon Voyage which just came out on May 20th on Japan’s Flavor Records. 8 brand new tracks and 2 remixes of songs from their debut C’est Si Bon mini-album which is being re-released with bonus tracks in June. Also got a couple of older Shelflife releases, Moving Pictures “Joie de Vivre” and Souvenir “S/T EP”, both bands are from Spain. From the Shelflife website:
Souvenir: “…Six delicious slices of pop sung in French just to remind us that the spirit of Françoise Hardy, France Gall, Jane Birkin and even Sylvie Vartan or Brigitte Bardot, is still alive in many different ways, making more sense than ever, and shining with the colour and shimmer of the Spring of 1969." Moving Pictures: “…This eight track wonder is filled with Sarah Records-esque bossa pop influenced by Bridge, France Gall, Cardigans, Françoise Hardy, Shoestrings, Laura Watling, Would-Be-Goods, and others. Moving Pictures are one of Spain’s premiere pop/bossa nova groups as they combine warm, jazzy sounds with sweet, child-like female vocals.”
Stay tuned, these bands will be featured on podcast in the next week or two!

Got some new stuff in the mail and picked up a couple Tartans records over the weekend at SF Pop Fest! Sean from Tullycraft was nice enough to send me this split (yellow vinyl!) with The Smittens. Awesome! Thanks Sean!! The packaging for the Naivepop or Petitfool CD is absolutely amazing. Comes with a handscreened cloth! I’m a sucker for good packaging (and colored vinyl!).

update: oops! it’s actually cats of camerford haha!

back to the dance floor

Back to the Dance Floor is a weekly podcast/blog featuring indie pop, electro, twee, indie rock bands. I play about ten songs in each episodes and in between songs give a little background info or concert info for those living in the San Francisco Bay Area if there is any. Also, there will always be a few tracks from Japanese bands since that’s kind of been my area of interest for the past decade or so. Anyway, feel free to email me with suggestions or requests at momokoyoshino@gmail.com and you can find my list of music here.
