Japan by Brooklyn gals Coco Rosie is about as gratuitously self-indulgent and over the top as anything currently floating around the great musical cosmos. It’s part opera, part vaudeville, part nursery-rhyme, a theatrical masterpiece that swivels and swirls before finally settling on a chorus that doesn’t so much ingratiate itself with your inner-ear iPod but rather rams itself in there with all the tack of a Tom Jones cover.

Listen to Coco Rosie’s Japan.
