Here's what looks like a fun compilation, put together for the 40th birthday of popular Japanese doll Monchhichi. Featured are cool girly indies tracks from the last few years, making it a good opportunity to catch up with the scene and find out more good new sounds. Love and Hates, frenesi, Un Amin, tofubeats, Avec Avec, Her Ghost Friend and more.
A related Monchhichi exhibition will be held at Sunday Issue in Shibuya from September 27 to 30, with a free party on Sept. 28 from 17:00 to 21:00 with DJs Twee Grrrls Club and DJ Monchhichi?! Details here.
