I have a few of those albums on playlists.

I've listened to quite a bit of YMO and the related bands that spawned off them.

My gateway to the genera was definitely Yellow Magic Orchestra. They are billed as the Japanese Kraftwerk, it was a road I had to travel when I heard about it. I find it pretty hit or miss as a genera but there are a few things that have really caught me.

I can't listen to this too many times.

Yes! This melody was also referenced in a great Mac DeMarco track.
