Tara Jane O'Neil earned accolades for her bass and vocal work in the Slint-onic post-hardcore band Rodan and in folky indie-rock duo Retsin, among others. The Portlander's solo output throughout the 21st century has veered toward introspective balladry of dew-dappled beauty. On TJO's 2011 album with Japanese vocalist Nikaido Kazumi, the twosome delicately shatter typical song forms with abstract, tangled structures and problem-child vocal oddities. Shugo Tokumaru is a Japanese multi-instrumentalist pop star who writes cute, instantly catchy songs accentuated by quirky percussion that wouldn't ruffle the down on a baby bird. Fun fact: Shugo's cover of Peter Bjorn and John's "Young Folks" permanently busted the Twee Meter. DAVE SEGAL
