J-Rock Fridays Vol. 57

October 28, 2011

I don’t feel like making a Halloween themed J-Rock Fridays this year. Maybe you’ll find some spooks anyway.

The Suzan- “Devils”

Hey, I thought you said there’s no Halloween J-Rock Fridays this year? Just a well timed video from The Suzan! Fun fact: Lykke Li sang backing vocals on this track.

10-FEET- “Sono Muko e”

What are you dressing up as for Halloween? 10-FEET make good geishas.

Egg Brain- “Future”

Egg Brain makes shitty omelets. They should just stick to rocking out.

the telephones- “A A U U O O O”

Vowels! Apparently that’s all it takes to get a crowd going. Fun stuff.

Suck a Stew Dry- 二時二分

It’s good to see past myspace band of the week recipients get signed. To a major label no less. It almost makes me feel like people are reading this blog.

phatmans after school- 東京少年

Phatman makes a video game out of it.

Swim Sweet Under Shallow- “Narrow”

Take a walk with Swim Sweet as they blow bubbles and make head bobbing indie rock.

MIRANOSAND- “Wonderland”

Miranosand heads to the cosmos! Will they make it down to Earth?

amazarashi- 空っぽの空に潰される

Who’s getting tired of these dance videos? At least things get creepy when the twin shows up.

With A Splash- “Freedamnit”

Subtitles? I can’t read while I’m also trying to see things!


Kamakaze! Goth rock for the season. You can even download it for free. Trick or treat.

Harvard- “A Chance Meeting”

Harvard is back! A disco charged indie track, which is also free. Trick or treat.

Nekocats- “Utsusemi”

Nekocats bathe in a rainbow of colors. Yay for girl-fronted rock!


Vote as many times as you want!
