My favorite Japanese band, formerly known as Friends, has changed their name to Teen Runnings due to the whatever Brooklyn band that took the name. Why Does Everybody Do is of the same ilk — that is, sublime reverb-pop — as all their previous jams under the name Friends. Succulent and sweet, the straightfoward riffs are like fuzzy waterfalls, chugging along in perfect accord with the reverbed-out ‘ooh oohs’ of the doo-wop-pop vocals. As always, this is awesome.
