TEKE::TEKE - "Gotoku Lemon"

The latest from Montreal based Japanese psych-rock band TEKE::TEKE is a delightful song that mixes Eastern European music with Chindon'ya', which is Japanese marching band music. "Gotoku Lemon" should not work at all, but TEKE::TEKE pull off this new sound brilliantly. The song is stunningly beautiful, hypnotically dreamlike, and oddly fun. It has a unique film score feel, but it's still going to inspire you to want to dance. If Maya Kuroki's vocals are somehow not enough to suck you in, the delightful horns and flute are sure to do the job. Plus, the song is about a world where glow in the dark lemons are found to be the cure for everything, and who doesn't want a song about that?

You can watch the video for "Gotoku Lemon" below. Hagata is due out June 9 on Kill Rock Stars, and can be pre-ordered here. For more on TEKE::TEKE, check out the band's website.
