Last year I had the pleasure of hearing music by Argentinian group The Kyoto Connection on the Jamendo website and became a fan as a result. A few months ago, I got an email from their mailing list concerning an upcoming release and I was stoked to say the least. I have to say that No Heaphones didn’t disappoint either.

While the newest release sticks with the general Japanese theme, it manages to define itself by have a cool retro sound that reminds me of some 80’s power pop.  It is fresh, vibrant, and energetic offering some great lyrical and instrumental work. Where the previous albums kept to more of an electronica or ambient vibe, this collection stands on it own and showcases their versatility as a music group while sticking to their roots making it a must-listen for fans of electro and synth-pop.

You can download this album free of charge from the album page on Jamendo and their official website.
