Panda Hero became Rose Windows

Panda Hero was going to be my first attempt to embed something from Nico Nico. Then I discovered on testing that you can only see the embedded video if you are currently logged into Nico Nico. So instead, another excellent live set from KEXP, this time featuring the band Rose Windows. KEXP is public radio [...]

More One OK Rock, Please!

It is hard to get enough of this band, they are one of the best groups out of Japan. One OK Rock has a unique sound that puts them at the center of the J-Rock scene. Check out their new documentary FOOL COOL ROCK!, which follows them through their latest world tour and features a [...]

Hatsune Miku US tour, October

Hatsune Miku will be playing a Live Concert in LA on October 11th and 12th at the Nokia Theater. Then again in New York at the Hammerstein Ballroom on October 17th and 18th. But to kick off her North American tour, first she will be at The Late Show with David Letterman October 8th, so [...]

DOLL$ BOXX

A few more tracks from DOLL$ BOXX; the first is Karakuri Town, the second is Monopoly, both from last year’s debut album. They have a new music video release this week from their new disc Doll$ Collection that I would include here, but they don’t make it embeddable. You will have to watch it on [...]

Sashida Ikuya

This track is from Sashida Ikuya, who’s style seems to be buried in sappy ballads, but somehow he produced this interesting blend of Jazz and Rock, with the occasional dash of Pop. The song is called Spam, and it is the kind of tune that lodges itself in your head so you find yourself playing [...]

Base Ball Bear

Base Ball Bear had a new CD come out in June, and as always they have some rocking tunes on it. The first one is I did not like so much from the new release, the second is Senkou Hanabi, which came out in 2013 as a single. If you like these, they have many [...]

Extremity Maiden Guess

The band is possibly called Extremity Maiden Guess, and the first track is Killer Ball, an interesting combination of Jazz, Progressive Rock, and Rap, done so the words become another part of the rhythm driving the music. That track was from their second mini-album; the next one is Take Off That Dress from their first [...]

SHISHAMO

This week we have the music of Shishamo, a relatively new band who debuted in November of 2013. The first track is from that album, called approximately What she was able to do to me, and the second is I Do Not Want To Go. All three of the band members graduated from the Design [...]

Shinsei Kamattechan

The first track is called Robot Roh Night by the band Shinsei Kamattechan, who seem to like graphics a lot and are using a Hatsune Miku kind of singer/ vocal processing, as near as I can tell. The second song is Front Memory, and also spends as much time putting together the graphics as creating [...]

Passepied new album

A new tune from Passepied, the song being Tokyo City Underground MV, and yes, the MV does mean Music Video. The lead vocalist is also a graphics artist and helps create the animations for her videos, as you may have noticed from Wednesday’s post. This track is from their new album, and will be in [...]
