J-Pop Moment: Monochrome EffectFebruary 18, 2010
Usually it takes me a few weeks to catch up on the latest Seth Macfarlane shows, but I found myself watching Sunday’s American Dad late last night. It was going swimmingly mediocre until Future Stan breaks out some “Japanese Funk.” Yes, Perfume makes their American debut on a Fox animated sitcom. I knew the song sounded familiar but couldn’t put my finger on it. Luckily Japanator already pointed out who it was.
Perfume is of a course the J-Pop trio produced by Yasutaka Nakata of capsule. The song is cute and the beat is catchy, even if it’s very reminiscent of a certain Supercar song. It’s a nice mixture of techno-pop and shibuya-kei.
