Hooked on this one. World Standard is the project of Sohichiro Suzuki, who seems to still be releasing music as of 2013. Surprise surprise, a few of his releases feature Hosono production. Allo! is full of of the dry genre-referencing that I strongly associate with Japanese 80s pop, especially leaning into cheesy movie soundtracks, doo-wop, chanson, and bossa nova. It's off-putting for some, though I think this is an unusually well-executed instance of it. Cleverly built pop songs with swingy vocal layering and shivery synth blips. For fans of Asami Kado and Miharu Koshi. Thank you Ian for the World Standard tip!
