New Japanese Vibes (37) – ほそいあや hosoiaya 夜食 ‘Yashoku’ (Album)

It’s been 12 years since Japanese writer and singer ほそいあや hosoiaya last released an album. Now, the J-Pop outfit has been enriched with some new glitter with the album 夜食 Yashoku (‘Late-night snack’).

This pleasant and unique pop record comes from the same person who wrote a book titled ゆる猫生活 ‘Yuru Neko Seikatsu’ (‘Free cat lifestyle’). With the help of producers ビーフ Beef, チバマコト Chiba Makoto and 和田泪 Wada Namida, hosoiaya dreams up an 8-chapter jovial journey with tinges of android vocal textures. Like the way a cat spends its life, she exudes a playful and gentle vibe with bubbly vocals, timeless arrangements and charming melodies.
