Taeko Ohnuki - Copine.

Oh, just your standard, mid-'80's, Francophile, utterly masterful Japanese synth-pop record. I know I heard the lead-off track, "Les Aventures de Tintin," somewhere recently - maybe that Ice Choir mix? Dunno. Anyway, this album's got some range, apparently it was arranged by both Ryuichi Sakamoto and Yasuaki Shimizu, so that gives you some idea... my favorite track is featured below, nice mix of MIDI-fried syncopation and wavering arpeggios (strings? horns?), probably courtesy of Shimizu, whose own music I really need to share here at some point...
