J-Rock Fridays Vol. 24

July 9, 2010

venti y cuatro

UNCHAIN- “Don’t Stop The Music”

“If my life could be like a television show it would be like Glee.  Cause on Glee you can sing and dance and no one will look at you funny.”

I would.

Fox Loco Phantom- “Midnight Sky Walker”

I always confuse this band with Foxboro Hot Tubs, and more recently The Foxglove Hunt.  Foxes are neat.  So is fencing.

razoku- “Wonderland”

Any band that wears zoo animal masks is welcome here.

gutevolk- “Picnic”

The farmer’s delight.

80kidz- “Spoiled Boy feat. Lovefoxxx”

Hey baby, Lovefoxxx is helping out 80kidz on their new single.  It basically sounds like a CSS song, remixed by 80kidz, but that’s OK.

The Dirt Radicals- “Osaka Sundown (Acoustic)”

Looks like the dudes from Saw Loser have a new band.  Mas gets to do vocals this time!

Smash Up- “Busted”

Dananananananana. Give me one more chance.

SKA☆ROCKETS- “アトリエ ブラヴォのテーマ”

Nananana. Ska party at the butcher shop.

Gollbetty- “Scramble”

6 boys.  1 girl.  That must have been an awkward tour bus.  Gollbetty called it quits this week, this song is from their upcoming best of album.

Jinn- “I like to say a million times”

I love the intro.  Why a pretty girl is stumbling around a dark tunnel I don’t know.

BoA- “Woo Weekend”

I don’t think I’m supposed to post K-pop here.  But it’s the weekend, woooo.


LITE won last week’s poll.  There was five-way tie for second place.  Since they only got two votes apiece, I’m not going to bother listing them. I’ll let you pick three again this week.
