Apologies for bunching up all these playlists and shows, but actual proper articles forthcoming over the Christmas/New Year period are coming (including the culmination of the 2012 Cracker Joke challenger, a feature on product placement, and my top films, albums and soundtracks of the year). But first, to kick off the festive mood, a Tokyo Soundscape Christmas Special! Well, half a Christmas Special, the rest is a collection of tracks new and old, odds and ends, but all jolly good fun. More Soundscape next year no doubt, but until then, メリクリ!
