J-Rock Fridays Vol. 91

February 22, 2013

Hello all! I had a wisdom tooth pulled last Friday and am still on a lot of pain killers so forgive me if I’m more incoherent than usual. I was thinking it’s time to start doing individual video posts. Let me know what you think!

Elen Never Sleeps- “Shine On Me”

“If you love me, don’t fall asleep.” My favorite track off Elen’s new EP, “Shine On Me” again borrows footage from some old black and white film. A reflective video with plenty of dancing, kissing and bare breasts.

The fin.- “Glowing Red on the Shore”

The fin. takes us on a grainy chillout session at the beach as the sun’s going down. A very literal interpretation of the song title but a great second track from the band. Looking forward to more from these guys.

Hotel Mexico- “A.I. in Dreams”

Two videos in one month, Hotel Mexico is really making up for lost time! There has been a live studio version of this song kicking around since last year but this Richard Law directed video really cranks up the creepy.

J-Rock Fridays Vol. 78

August 24, 2012

The heat wave is back!

Aniss & Lacanca- “Aniss & Lacanca’s Theme”

Aniss & Lacanca is the side project of two of the prettiest singers in Japan, mmm and Mai Mishio from Uzumibi. “Aniss & Lacanca’s Theme” is a bit more cheery than their individual projects with the enthusiasm of a Broadway musical. It’s nice to see them goofy for a change dancing on a hillock with smiles so wide you can fit that windmill in their mouths. Click here for the more rocking “You’re Cool.”

J-Rock Fridays Vol. 50

July 22, 2011

Fifty seems like an important number. If you can’t wait for J-Rock Fridays, I’ve been posting a few videos a day on my Tumblr account.

Comeback My Daughters- “Always on your side”

Outta Here is a great album. And since I’m too lazy to write album reviews I’ll just give CBMD top billing again. Awesome country sound!

J-Rock Fridays Vol. 9

December 11, 2009

In the last week, I have begun the epic task of organizing my computer’s “Downloads” folder.  That means  finding a lot of stuff I haven’t even listened to so that I can start preparing my end of the year list.  I still have a couple of hundred things to go through so forgive me.  The winner of last week’s poll was sleepy.ab with Overground Acoustic Underground a point behind (I’m starting to sense a pattern here).  This week we have 10 new videos from FACT, toe, winnie, and more…

1000say- “Holy Rain”

I’ve said this before, but 1000say remind me of school food punishment.  Except now that school food punishment has become a shit pop band (thanks, Sony!), 1000say is the only good synth-pop band left.  “Holy Rain” is a lot of fun.  It’s like I stepped back in the 80s for a few minutes.  I can’t wait to get my hands on their new mini-album Lightning Amplifier.  (myspace)
