ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
When a group of DJs in Tokyo decided to start producing their own original tracks to spice up their club night, they inadvertently gave birth to The Moist Towelettes, a four-piece international group with a keen ear for pop, a good sense of fun, and a style all their own! Consisting of two Japanese girls (Emi and Yuko) and two Canadian guys (Dave and Mike), The Moist Towelettes are an unlikely team, bringing their varied backgrounds and musical tastes together to create some seriously catchy and addictive tunes. Like Junior Senior or Puffy AmiYumi before them, The Moist Towelettes manage to be cool and hip without being painfully ironic or apologetic about their music. It’s unabashed pop, plain and simple, perfect for dancing around your room in your underwear or playing at a stylish soiree.

The group completed their first recording, See You Later Boy, in February of 2006. Within a month, they were the subject of a feature (“How To Invent a Pop Group the Easy Way”) on popular and influential British pop website, Popjustice. In April, the track was remixed by Portland, Oregon-based DJ Kid Whatever, and in early May it was played on Tokyo’s number one radio station J-Wave, by none other than Japan’s best-respected musician, Ryuichi Sakamoto. Not bad for the band’s first track.
The Moist Towelettes’ second track, Clap Your Hands, received a similar reaction, and was such a favourite at their live shows, it quickly became their signature song.

They had no trouble booking gigs as their repertoire and fan base expanded, and spent most of 2006 perfecting their live shows in Tokyo. Dressed in adorable, sparkly costumes and often seen handing out balloons and candy, the Towelettes inspire normally subdued and quietly appreciative Tokyo audiences to sing, dance, and shout out in unison, rallied by the band’s mantra: “Konya mo issho ni, utatte, odotte, get moist!” Translation: “Tonight, all together, let's sing, dance, and get moist!”

In December 2006, The Moist Towelettes released an EP, appropriately titled The Moist EP. In June 2007, they took their sound overseas to crowds of adoring fans in Toronto, and are currently planning to take on the world.
