This week we take a good look behind the mask, with a selection of music which isn’t quite what it appears to be on first listen.
We have Frenchmen pretending to be Japanese, a Japanese man pretending that Duke Ellington was also Japanese, an Irishman pretending to be Hawaiian, the sound of exotic Hackney and a duo pretending it’s still the 1980s (#callback).
WARNING: Surprisingly, no Germans.

Thing of the Week
If you happen to be planning on going to a Venetian masked ball in the near future, this Black with Music Notes Long Nose Venetian Masquerade Mask could provide the perfect disguise. This adult-sized mask has ribbon ties and is perfect for a masked ball. In fact, we’re not really sure what else it would be perfect for. Most importantly, though, one size fits most.
