This trio of Japanese females continues churning out the perfectly garage-y sunshine pop that has transfixed the U.S. since they first appeared in the late '80s. While they've never regained the surf-punk genius of "Twist Barbie," "Do You Happen to Know" comes close, and their knack for finding where The Beatles and The Byrds meet up is in full effect on "Star" and "Rock N Roll Cake." Plus, listening to singer Naoko Yamano's translated poetry never gets boring.
