J-Rock Fridays Vol. 39February 18, 2011
Just for you.
Asobi Seksu- “Trails”
Just in time for this week’s release of Fluorescence, one of my favorite albums so far this year. Watch Yuki trailing through decrepit buildings and forgotten train stations.
Shotgun Runners- “Lies, Lies, Lies”
These guys have a cool Beatles thing going on.
Stuffed animal party!
Sorry For A Frog- “ABC”
1,2,3. It took me a while to figure out they were saying the English alphabet. Probably not the best instructional video.
Kaisoku Toukyou- ドロドロ (Muddy)
Like all great punk rock, Kaisoku Toukyou finishes early.
Shinsei Kamattechan- 神聖かまってちゃん
Kamattechan has a weird chorus of screeching angels in the background. There also appears to be a lot of religious imagery inbetween shots of the cat-eared boy. I don’t think this was on their last album so this must be a new song.
BlieAN’s looking a little dangerous in this video.
killing Boy- “Frozen Music”
killing Boy (Nothing’s Carved In Stone/HINTO/etc. side project) released two videos from their upcoming album. I chose the dangerous sounding one.
Swim Sweet Under Shallow- “Background Music”
SSUW provide some pleasant background music.
Akihiro Namba- “Punk Rock Through The Night”
Cabernet goes oh so well with punk rock.
Hystoic Vein- “messiah”
Naked mannequins! Catch Hystoic Vein at Japan Nite this year.
Samurai jazz fans unite! Pe’z are celebrating their tenth anniversary!
Come on, let’s see more poll participation!
