Monkey Majik

I ran across this song of the day at NPR’s website today.  It’s a song by a band in Sendai, Japan called “Monkey Majik”, two white brothers from Canada who went to Japan to teach English and stayed, and two Japanese members.  They’re apparently getting pretty popular in Japan.  It’s a blend of pop and hip hop, this particularly song.  But I’ve downloaded another one that feels just pop.  I like both, but the pop/hip hop blend feels fresher.  I love that the brothers write and sing in Japanese.  Have a listen at NPR.
