ONE OK ROCK: American Girls

I have been ranting about how good ONE OK ROCK is since 2011, and they have gotten nothing but better since then. I finally had the chance to see them live on October 6th, 2015, in a tiny little club in a major East Coast city, and unlike most bands I have heard they sounded […]

Yūko Suzuhana

The wonderful voice of Yūko Suzuhana has been driving the Wagakki Band for years, a band blending traditional Japanese musical instruments and Western rock in ways never heard before. This past November, she finally got her first solo mini-album, Cradle Of Eternity, with a different musical sensibility but that same powerful voice. Here is a […]

Ghost Dancing

This animated short is too adorable for words! The audio is Moses Supposes from 1952’s Singing In The Rain, the animation itself is very well done. Thanks to GoBoiano for the heads up on this one, and thanks to Bowing for doing the animation and posting it. At least it looked like he was one […]

RADWIMPS

Earlier this week I mentioned the upcoming North American theatrical release of Your Name, and included the main theme by RADWIMPS. I thought this was a good opportunity to share a few other of their many songs, the first of which is the 2017 version of Iin Desu Ka, AKA Is That OK?, recorded just […]

Your Name on the Big Screen in North America!

Japan’s number 1 film of 2016 was Your Name from Makoto Shinkai, and it will be in movie theaters in the US beginning on April 7th. Funimation Films is presenting it, with the options of seeing it in the original Japanese with English subtitles, or with an English language soundtrack. If you don’t know Makoto […]

ALL OFF

ALL OFF are a Japanese band that formed back in 2004, starting off by playing the festival circuit, becoming an overnight sensation after a decade of killer rock and hard rock. The first track is Refrain Boy, which is the ending theme song for the anime Mob Psycho 100 and was posted last August. If […]

Phantogram

New York group Phantogram played on the first of Triple-J’s Like A Version segments for 2017 this week, and they sounded sweet so I had to share them here. If you are not already watching them every week, in Like A Version a great Alt Rock band comes into the broadcast studio at Triple-J and […]

Goodbye 2016!

2016 was an amazing year for music, so to wave bye-bye to it I wanted to add a few tunes I hadn’t had the chance to post earlier. The first track is One OK Rock’s I Was King from their upcoming album Ambitions, which will be released on January 13th. The next one is Blood […]

Merry Xmas Music

Merry Chrismas, all! A present for your ears; Chu’s Day rocking out with All I Want For Christmas Is You.

We start off with Leo Imai doing Bird Of Paradise, posted on November 17th, and recorded on November 9th at Fever, Tokyo. Next we have the official METAFIVE Musical Chairs track, posted on November 9th, and I couldn’t […]
