Yura Yura Teikoku - Sweet Spot - 2005

Yura Yura Teikoku have experienced about as much success as an underground rock group can in their native Japan. Their following has grown steadily in the almost 20 years since they began as a four-piece, psychedelic garage band, despite enduring countless lineup changes. In the meantime, they've leapfrogged from their own tiny label to various larger indies and finally to the majors, each time gaining wider exposure and more popularity. At this point their music can even be found in Japan's famous karaoke bars, allowing patrons to drunkenly experience their own version of the band's psychedelic freakouts. -Pitchfork
