James Kobe- “Happy”

Boku wa happy!  It scares me when I can understand a lyric in Japanese.  But damn did this video make me happy.

Predawn- “Suddenly”

Suddenly, the indie pop princess rears her head.  Can she strum her way out of wonderland?

bloodthirsty butchers- “curve”

The butchers are back with another stop motion video.  I’m just going to assume this video is about reincarnated lovers.

fragments of clarity- “make the revolution in your heart”

There’s nothing clear about this revolution.

Masterlink- “Traveling”

Thanks for cutting the end off.  Will soccer-ball head ever learn how to dance?

Bradberry Orchestra- “Love Check”

A new collaboration between  Shinichi Osawa and Takeshi Kobayashi (the guy who did the All About Lily Chou Chou soundtrack!).  It obviously has more of a Shinichi Osawa beat.

sequick- “Sunday Morning”

Jazz with vocoder?  Who would’ve thought that would work.  Oh, and this is a Maroon 5 song.  I’m looking forward to the Carpenters cover.

HeavensDust- “Cry and Fall”

A metal band that has a full-time shakuhachi player.  I can get behind that.

the strange drama- “Predawn”

Why don’t you play with that lonely girl instead of walking on the beach?

neco- “Engawa De Dancehall”

cute

It looks like Nothing’s Carved In Stone won last week’s poll.  Congrats.  Good album by the way.

Poll time.  Choose 3.
