MAN WITH A MISSION: Winding Road

MAN WITH A MISSION just released their latest track, Winding Road, a week ago, and already it has almost 600,000 views. And for those of you who missed this incredible collaboration, I had to share February’s Freak It!, where their signature music style went head to head with Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra to produce a […]

Monkey Majik

Monkey Majik has a new song out called Tokyo lights that I wanted to share here, along with their 2011 collaboration with the Yoshida Brothers, Change.

Bagpipe Boogie

Ready to rock? Here are a few world-class tunes to help put everything in perspective for you. The first is from Albannach with their killer track The Fire and Thunder of Scotland, the second is the Goddesses of Bagpipes with Shipping Up To Boston / Enter Sandman, and the third is Clanadonia with still more […]

Weird Al: Polka Saves The world!

There is nothing I can say that will make this any better, or any worse: Enjoy!

They slide in and out of English with this song, most of their tunes come with both an English and Japanese version and are available on iTunes. Kyary Pamyu Pamyu has a powerful new song this week, Kimino […]

BAND-MAIKO: Secret MAIKO Lips

BANDMAID‘s Best Music Ever is the only way I can describe their latest tracks, including Secret Maiko Eyes! Posted on YouTube just a week ago, it keeps their driving energy but brings traditional instruments into the mix, in a departure from their previous pure Metal style. They haven’t abandoned their previous personas, BANDMAID still exists […]

World Order: Let’s Start WWIII (NSFW-ish), Singularity, more

Japanese performance powerhouse World Order has a new song online called Let’s Start WW3, and while I usually avoid anything political here (being rather seriously apolitical myself), this video is just too good to pass up. It features as always their amazing dance routines combined with excellent music and great singing, all the things a […]

Radwimp: Legend of the Demon Cat

Radwimp has done the music for another feature film, the Live Action Legend of the Demon Cat, and it looks amazing; the title of the theme song is Mountain Top. The movie was made by major Japanese film company Kadakawa, includes a substantial Japanese cast, and is based on a Japanese novel by Yoneyama Mineo. […]

INSHOW-HA

The Art-Rock band Inshow-Ha have been making music since 2009, and I wanted to share a few of their tunes so you could get to know them. They are office workers who only do a few live shows a year, but they have still developed a fair sized audience of fans in Japan. Lemon is […]

Perfume: Ready for Prime Time

Perfume started life as an electronica oriented art-rock band back when they lived in Shibuya, and they have evolved wonderfully in the past decade. They have a tasty new tune to share, and although the versions available for posting online are short, they illustrate the power the full version brings to the table.

Mugenmirai, […]
