John and Tom are joined by DJ Van Paugam, a subject matter expert on yacht rock’s distant cousin known as City Pop. Contemporary to our favorite genre, City Pop was born in Japan in the mid-70s, with a heyday that lasted about as long as yacht rock did. We learn about the genre’s origin, the crossover with yacht rock artists, and why the soundscape of City Pop is so close to that of the L.A. sound in the golden era of music production.
