Half Japanese - Invincible (LP)
New studio album from Michigans greatest outsider combo. An inspiration to Kurt Cobain, post grunge deep thinkers and veterans of the Cant Play/Will play fraternity. Pop music for those outside of pop music. Songs for those still bedeviled by one liners and abrasive melodies. Thematically succinct tales of puppet people, vampires and the walking dead juxtaposed with discerning love songs and eternal affection. Half-Japanese are a respected institution. They've been making noise since the late '70s. Pop Matters Innocent abandon is still at the heart of the band Pitchfork.
