New Boyish: “Dreaming Boogie”

Tokyo indie-pop outfit have fleshed themselves out a bit in recent times, going from a fuzz-shrouded indie-pop band who sounded like they were recording under several blankets to a band who, on “Dreaming Boogie,” break out the saxophone. Coming from the soon-to-be-released Strings, “Dreaming Boogie” finds the group embracing lusher sounds, from the aforementioned sax to string swells to wet bass. The trade off is energy — whereas before they shambled, now they kind of stroll along on a sunny day — but its a pleasant enough number, and that sax though. Listen above.
