My First Story Revisited

It has been a while since I last posted tunes by My First Story, but they have a new mini-album called LET IT DIE coming out. They just posted REVIVER, which is the second song from it this past Wednesday, and it has already crossed the 300,000 views mark and keeps heading up. The title […]

Vivid Undress

Vivid Undress is a J-Pop band who just put out their 3rd mini-album, and the first song is I’m Not Menhera from that release, posted online on June 15th. The 2nd track, Urala, was posted on March 31st, while the third is Coelacanth Dance from mid-2016. These give you a place to start, but they […]

Polkadotstingray: Shinkuronishika

Or perhaps the new track from Fukuoka prefecture Art-Rock band Polkadotstingray might be called Synchro-Nishika, but however it translates it is the title track from their first mini-album and was just posted online last week. I am also re-posting Electric Public which hit the web in February, both excellent songs.

Man With A Mission

It came as something of a surprise to me when I realized I have never done a post on Man With A Mission, the famous wolf-headed J-Rock band. Today I am going to correct that by posting a few tracks, but if you like what you hear be aware there is a lot more to […]

Bump Of Chicken revisit

It has been a while since I have featured Bump Of Chicken here, so I thought I would share a few tracks released since my last posting. The first track this time around is called Answer the theme song for the anime Sangatsu no Lion, AKA March Comes in like a Lion. The second is […]

Gayageum Rock

The Gayageum is a multi-string instrument from 6th century Korea, and artist Luna Lee has been using the instrument to play rock songs to very good effect. So good that she plays festivals around the world, including SXSW in Austin this year. Here are a few tracks to give you a taste, I bet you […]

Radwimps: Brain Washing

Posted on May 10th the new Radwimps song Brain Washing passed 1,600,000 views at the two week mark. Two days later they posted Saihate Aini, the second track here, and that one hit 1,700,000 views in that shorter time. Which is pretty amazing, but don’t expect it to stop there. Their song Zenzenzense from last […]

More Ulfuls

It has been a while since I posted about the Ulfuls, a band who got their name got their name because back in 1992 one of the band members misread the word Soulful on his favorite album and they went with it. They have put out a lot of great music over the years, so […]

DAOKO again

I know I featured DAOKO recently (on March 18th in fact), but she has posted another excellent track earlier this week so I had to include it here. In the five days since it went online, Dear Sir, Goodbye, Good Bye has racked up over 200,000 views. I also included her 2015 song Mercury, just […]

More Winking Owl

They sounded so good the first time (if you missed it, scroll back three posts and enjoy some more great tunes from them) I had to add a few more from The Winking Owl. The first one is 2015’s Here For You off of their EP Open Up My Heart, the second is 2016s Bloom, […]
