90’s throwback trivia: Remember Cibo Matto, a duo of Japanese women expats in NYC from the mid 90s, playing Shibuya-kei, trip hop, indie pop rock, ambient, bossa nova, and acid jazz? They had songs, and performances on shows like Buffy The Vampire Slayer, and in movies like Half-Baked. Sean Lennon was briefly a former member of the band. They’ve collaborated with The Beastie Boys and contributed to The Beastie’s now defunct record label Grand Royal. With two albums out: Viva! La Woman (1996) and Stereo ★ Type A (1999), before a breakup/hiatus, they are now back with a new music video, and a new album, Hotel Valentine slated for a February 14, 2014 release date.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer: Season 2 Episode 1 “When She Was Bad”. Cibo Mato performs their hit “Sugar Water” and two other songs (Sean Lennon performs with them, subsequently joins the band).
