J-Rock Fridays Vol. 65February 24, 2012
Fun fact: J-Rock Explosion turns 5 years old today! I didn’t plan anything special but here’s a new J-Rock Fridays.
ASPARAGUS- “Analog Signal Processing”
Second PV from Asparagus’ 5th album, which only took 5 years to come out. Good to have you back.
the telephones- “D.E.N.W.A”
Two things the telephones love: songs about disco and spelling things out. Dial it in with “D.E.N.W.A.”
I posted the short PV on Tumblr earlier this week and now we have the full PV for this sorry excuse for a column. Traverse the solar system with the peaceful sounds of sleepy.ab.
The Waybark- “Zombie Papa”
Awesome, another zombie J-Rock video! Looks like Daichi needs to find new bandmates…
te’ – 音の中の『痙攣的』な美は、観念を超え肉体に訪れる野生の戦慄。
What’s more fun than a new instrumental rock tune from te’? Translating their long as hell album and song titles! Get to it.
Arukara- “Mix Juice”
Vampire fruits. Let’s make juice. Lemon. Orange. Avocado.
Back Drop Bomb- “Progress”
Welcome to the ocracy of ska.
Psysalia Psysalis Psyche- “My Dinosaur”
Psysalia Psysalis Psyche is explosive! Run away, turkeys.
Ryo Hamamoto & The Wetland- “Sally Lee”
Ryo Hamamoto does his own artwork on his Macbook Pro. Good for him!
Paionia shows us the night in the life of your average cross dresser. Looks way more depressing than liberating.
TsuShiMaMiRe- “Kuufuku to Kuuhaku”
Fun fact: TsuShiMaMiRe was the first Japanese band I saw live (still a small list though). I only caught the last 5 minutes but I know where the ballroom at the Hyatt is now. TsuShiMaMiRe’s new album is already out in Japan but Good Charamel will be releasing it in the states this spring.
Tatami rock! Of course, the girl is the one with the keyhole.
How about some archival war footage set to gloomy post-rock with a little opera in the background to end your day? Mushroom cloud explosion!
