The Kyoto Connection – [2010] No Headphones Required

I found this synth-pop album through the Free Music Charts, a monthly show presenting great free music, mainly from Jamendo.

The Kyoto Connection reminds me of La Roux due to the lead singer’s voice and the yummy electronic pop harmonies. This album consists of 11 varied songs, all well mixed and produced.

Take on me is really a sound-alike of a-ha’s 1985 hit with the same title. Cheesy synth pads and soft drum loops.

H.E.A.T. has a great chorus. Hear it. Love it.
