Quirky Japanese Pop. Duo, sisters Momo (vocals) and Koharu (accordion, chorus). Group name is a wordplay of “charan-poran” which means sloppy or irresponsible. Songs, a “melting pot of chanson, Gypsy music, and Japanese pop from the 50s/60s,” have charm, dramatic flair. Shades of Gogol Bordello (if they weren’t a rock band). In Japanese, so No FCCs Detected but no promises. Play any. My faves: 2,5 ~eme o.|
1. Kagiana (a capella) (1:03) Sweet breathy voice. Slow tango rhythm.
2. Saite Na Onna (3:32) Voice, accordion, clarinet. Pings back and forth between slow moody Parisian cafe music and fast gypsy dancing tune.
3. Yukidoke (3:56) Accordion, voice, glockenspiel, cello. Slow to mid gypsy tune. Delicate, energetic.
4. Hakaba Made Goissho Ni (3:33) Accordion, percussion, voice. Bright sound. All elements present here: 60s pop, chanson, hectic gypsy. Rhythm careens from slow to mid to fast.
5. Koi Ha Moumoku (2:41) Accordion, drums, bass, keyboard, “trash words” (word salad). Mid-tempo, swaying rhythm. One could waltz to this.
6. Saigo No Jun Tokkyuu (3:53) Accordion, drums, bass, violins. Starts off with spoken words, then jumps into a bouncing fast tune. Song fades to silence ~2:15. Then returns quietly, pensive violin, whispery voice.
7. Tabidachi No Uta (4:22) Accordion, voice, chorus. Like a lullaby.
8. Kagiana (accordion) (1:26) Jaunty accordion solo.
