In the wake of the recent tragedy in Japan, a post dedicated to a great country completely undeserving of what happened to them seems to be in order. California Wives’s Tokyo is a stunning part-indie, part-shoegaze pop song that seems to have surfaced at the right time, despite its conceiving having nothing to do with the disaster in Japan. The song seems tailor made for the country’s rebuilding process, with a touching refrain of Cause they’re building houses and lights in Tokyo providing a sense of optimism and hope for the battered nation. It’s an amazing track that everyone needs to hear, and will probably be the last one I’ll be posting for a while due to a killer 2 weeks of Finals.
