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, […]

OreSka Band Again!

It has been a while since we posted our last OreSka Band, and they have some great new tunes worth sharing. All of these are from their 3rd Full Album Slogan, which was released November 23rd, 2016. The first track is Free Now posted last November, the second is !Fiebre! from last May and pretty […]

Q’ulle

I just saw the new Ghost In The Shell movie today, and it was every bit as good as I had hoped; firmly in that universe but from a parallel time line. I look for some Yoko Kanno music to post in honor of it, but didn’t immediately find anything posted by the copyright holders, […]

DAOKO

DAOKO is an energetic J-Pop artist from Tokyo who recently had one of her songs selected to be the end theme for Shingeki no Bahamut Virgin Soul. Not bad for someone who posted their home made music videos to Nico Nico Douga, and had one of them take off. The first track is Daisuki with […]

SECONDWALL

SECONDWALL is an energetic J-Pop-Punk band who formed in 2009, with their first major single in 2012 and the first mini-album in 2013. The first song here is At the end of love, the cherry blossom dances, which was the OP theme of the TV Drama Love That Makes You Cry on Fuji TV last […]
