Kyoto four-piece Homecomings excel at capturing the small, sad details of life.

"I write down the melancholic moments in my daily life, like sudden depression or the mood on a cloudy day," says guitarist Yuki Fukutomi via email from their hometown. "Then I put those feeling into an imagined city and its people."

The band's latest album, "Sale of Broken Dreams," continues to find Fukutomi, along with vocalist and guitarist Ayaka Tatamino, drummer Narumi Ishida and bassist Honami Fukuda, capturing existence's more downtrodden moments over zippy guitar-guided indie-pop.
