OLDCODEX

OLDCODEX is one of the bands playing the Anisong World Matsuri in just two weeks, so this seemed like a good time to share some of their music. The first track is Walk, the ending theme from the Anime Kuroko’s Basketball, the second is Aching Horns from the Anime Feature Film High Speed! -Free! Starting [...]

Anisong World Matsuri

The Anisong World Matsuri takes place July 2nd and 3rd as part of Anime Expo, pretty much North America’s most intense Anime Con. The musical line up is amazing, with 9 artists including: Eir Aoi (Fate/Zero, Sword Art Online, Kill la Kill, more) Flow (Naruto, Eureka seveN, more) JAM Project (MACROSS 7, One Piece, Yu-Gi-Oh!, [...]

frederic

This week a few additional tracks from J-Pop band frederic (no, I have no idea why their name is un-capitalized). The first is Tomei-ningen (Invisible Man) posted last October, the second is Only Wonder, posted online on May 12th of this year.

Sekirara

Sekirara has a great sound and a lot of energy, as you can hear. The band formed in July of 2014, played live shows all over Japan, and started releasing singles in the middle of 2015. The first track is I Want To Be In Your Memory Long Even One Second from their second demo [...]

Qaijff

Qaijff’s second mini album Life is Wonderful was released a last week, and the first track is the first song on the disc, Wonderful Life. They started playing as a band in April of 2012 and had so much fun they have been doing it ever since. The second song is Organism from their 2015 [...]

Chu’s Day

Chu’s day is a high energy J-Rock girls band from downtown Tokyo who seem to be playing live somewhere every day. In fact it was difficult finding official studio tracks to post, most of their official videos are them playing live in some club or at some event. The first track is Rocking Shoes, the [...]

Akashic

Akashic has only been together for a couple of years, and has two mini-albums under their belt, one in 2014, the other this past March. They have the kind of high energy pop sound that makes me think they would do very well doing anime intro songs, but so far I haven’t located any titles [...]

Local Connect

Local Connect has a 2nd Mini Album out now called 7RAILS, and the first song here is the first track on that album, Gold. Their first mini-album came out in June of 2015, one of the songs on it was the closing theme for the Anime My Love Story, Where to Find Happiness. The second [...]

Vianka

The band Vianka are playing a musical style known as Shimokitazawa Guitar Rock, a neighborhood of Tokyo that rose up and became the center of Japanese Indie music in the 90s, and continues to hold that place today. The first track is Sympathy of Only One, and I find myself loving it as much for [...]

Contemporary Life

A less than subtle band, Contemporary Life is a blast of fresh air from Asia, an Alt Rock band from Osaka. The first track is Husky Girl, the second track is Yankee Girl, and they are both quite energetic and worth your time to check out. Then there is Let’s Go Gedo (Let’s Go heresy) [...]
