J-Rock Fridays Vol. 47June 10, 2011
Almost every band this week spells their name in ALL CAPS. I didn’t plan that.
TACOBONDS get aggressive in this artsy video.
Gotta love a hip hop duo that replaces beats for acoustic guitar. PS I miss Tower Records.
KING BROTHERS- “Kill Your Idol”
Who’s your punk rock idol?
PLASTIC GIRL IN CLOSET- “Pretty Little Bag”
“Plastic Girl In Closet” may sound like some kind of torture porn, but no worries, the foursome is just shoegazing on the roof.
GOOFY’S HOLIDAY- “Grudgeman”
It kind of sounds like he’s saying “always I masturbate.”
ALOHA has been hanging out on my Jet Set recommendations list for a couple of weeks. How did they know I’d like faux Caribbean music?
ASHIGARU YOUTH- “Like or LoveStory”
We need more chubby lead singers. Represent.
Put your hand up to block out the sun. Beautiful violins.
SAMURAI JACK UNIVERSE- “beautiful”
I always wanted to watch Samurai Jack but I’ll settle for SAMURAI JACK UNIVERSE on this Friday afternoon.
the HIATUS- “Bittersweet / Hatching Mayflies”
…when’s ELLEGARDEN getting back together?
LAST ALLIANCE- エンプティハート
LAST ALLIANCE is staying real BLACK AND WHITE.
Four Degrees Celsius- “Like A Flower”
Deep in the forest girls are allowed to front screamo bands.
Japan gets songs like these on their “Punk Goes Pop” compilations. Jealous.
HEY-SMITH- “Endless Sorrow”
