Three-Weeks-Old Lovesick Puppy - Empty Park

Despite having an easy-to-find webpage, a combination of language barriers and lack of media attention means that Japanese quintet Three-Weeks-Old Lovesick Puppy are one hard nut to crack. This track, one of a few songs actually available online, comes across as a gleeful J-Pop tribute to 90s Britain, where bands like Stereolab, The Pastels and The High Llamas combined influences as diverse as jazz, sunshine pop, soul and art rock. The song is driven by a mesmerising bass line, on top of which organ, woodwind and typically chirpy Japanese vocal parts lay.
