Spin It Around: Volley Boys “Sotsugyou”

This year’s Record Store day in Japan features all sorts of special releases and reissues…which is to say, same as it ever was, please pay a lot of yen for a (still great) Tentenko single on vinyl. Still, aside from all the sales gimmicks, it has prompted Tanukineiri Records to get the band Volley Boys to put out a new cassette number. The main number is “Sotsugyou,” and it is a lovely bit of indie-pop, laid-back but avoiding the fall into post-DeMarco slacker rock so many acts across the nation have embraced. Rather, the group mix surf melodies with all-together-now vocals — and one heck of a guitar solo — to create a catchy number great at all times of the year. Listen above.
