Drizzle Over: Browned Butter’s “Fall”

For all the internet niche genres and buzzed-about artists blurring the line between electronic music and J-pop, one constant in the Japanese music world is a never-ending supply of indie-pop. And a lot of it hits a sweet spot, even if the influences come through clearly. Kyoto’s Browned Butter deliver one such rush on “Fall,” their first uploaded song online. It’s a galloping number featuring vocalist and guitarist Naoko Yutani’s English lyrics, with the best parts coming from the intersection of softer section smashing into ones where feedback drizzles in to add some roughness.
