Back in the day, Rivers Cuomo was an ocean apart from that 18-year-old girl who live in small city of Japan. Today, though, she’s 35 and Cuomo is releasing a Japanese-language album. Cuomo teamed up with Scott Murphy, of Chicago pop-punk act Allister, to record Scott & Rivers, the eponymous debut from Scott & Rivers, for Delicious Deli, a Japanese imprint of Universal Records. The album is out now, and you can check out its first single, “Homely Girl,” below. It sounds like a Weezer B-side sung in Japanese. Listen.
