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 track that sinks its teeth into you and doesn’t let go. And then, just because I can, I had to add a collaboration Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra did with Unison Square Garden last November, another excellent band. Enjoy!

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 amazing Bagpipe Fusion! And just because I couldn’t stop there, we have to top it off with the Star Wars Theme – Dubstep Bagpipe Cover, because who wouldn’t love that?

There is some good new music posted this week, starting with Faky’s Power Ballad Who We Are. 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 Mikata, and while I find the fact that she is the only person allowed to have a face in her videos a little creepy, I absolutely love her music. Both Faky and Kyary have major tours coming up I will have to get into in another post. Kobukuro’s new track is One Times One, and was inspired by the Manga Becomes You by Kono Takano. As you can see it became a collaboration between the musicians and the artist and author. All three of these totally different songs were posted on line this past Tuesday, I hope you enjoy at least one of them.
