Japanese fille Kumi Okamoto was part of The Konki Duet (posted about them here) and Crazy Curl, but now she's Kumisolo. Her album My love for you is a cheap popsong is out now, and features one French song (best song on the album, imho), on which she gets help from Momus. Another nice song is the Waitresses-cover I know what boys like. If you're into odd electronic Japense pop, this is for you. Kumi makes fun videos too, see here.
Speaking of Momus, on his blog he reveals that Kahimi Kari is working on a new album, with Jim O'Rourke! Yay!
