Ogikubo Station

Ogikubo Station are this week’s special guest in The Moonshine Sessions.... Maura Weaver took time out on their first ever UK tour to come into our studio to play her unique take on They Might Be Giants’ ‘Dr Worm’ plus their original single and fan favourite ‘This World Breaks Your Heart and Makes You Grey’.

Started with the simple of having fun together, Ogikubo Station is the joyful work of Asian Man Records founder Mike Park and Maura Weaver from riotous Ohio punk band Mixtapes. The pair strip back to simple melodies and chord structures to allow for real emotion to connect with their listeners as heard on their debut EP ‘S/T’ which dropped in 2017 and first album ‘We Can Pretend Like’ released last year.

To celebrate Maura coming to the UK to play Ogikubo Station music here for the very first time, the pair have recorded a new EP ‘Okinawan Love Songs’ which has been given a limited run of only 500 copies on 7” vinyl.
