Leo Ieiri 家入レオ

One of the awesome sonic discoveries I made when I visited Tokyo was Leo Ieiri. I have a taste for good J-Pop and Leo Ieiri has a rock garage sound with some Shibuya shine to it. I first heard her new single, "Sabrina" on ANA's Video Music Collection while I was flying. I then heard her new single played many times while walking the streets of Shibuya. Ieiri's sound reminds me of the Dead Weather and I love the crunchy fuzz bass lines.

At first I thought that Ieiri was saying, "samui na" as in "I'm cold." My fiancee's sister told me later that Ieiri is actually saying, "Sabrina."
