Inspired by a recent trip to Japan, consider this, totally un-Japanese, playlist for your new music diet. Izakaya Nights is a collection of the wildest and most entertaining recent tracks, curated by Team Poule. An izakaya then, describes the most common form of a restaurant in Japan, a loud type of after work pub with excellent food. Just what you need after day, lost in translation.
On the list below you will find a careful selection of new songs and some new artists as well. First off the bat are Malmö duo Wy - look out for their November dates in Sweden. Next up are Jagara, three sisters from London, Nottingham duo Moscow Youth Cult, Swedish producer Monuson, and Joel Rampage, of Postiljonen fame.
