Moshi Moshi's blissful pop heads on the road

Moshi Moshi Records, founded in 1998, is celebrating its 10th anniversary on a bit of delay with an August tour featuring three of its current acts: Norway's Casiokids and the UK's The Wave Pictures and Slow Club. Each act is excellent in its own distinct way—from the playful electro-pop of the Casiokids to the shimmering melodies of folk-pop duo Slow Club and lyrical prowess of The Wave Pictures—and each are fully worth checking out.
