Kegawa no Maries – Tin Pan Alley Review

If listeners were ever looking for a band that went in many different directions on one album, Kegawa no Maries’ Tin Pan Alley is the one. From the first track, the strangely addictive music flows through the eleven songs making statement after statement with 1960s rock, strange alt-country rock, and even 1950s do-wop.

It’s strange enough to peak interest, but the songs are performed so well that even though the album is so varied, each song is interesting.

Tin Pan Alley was a 2011 release, and really shows that Japanese music is still evolving and playing a variety that can’t be compared.
