J-Rock Fridays Vol. 95

April 19, 2013

Although this week’s storms and floods continue to knock off my internet connection every few minutes, it’s Friday and I have a thick stack of new J-Rock videos for you!

Bugy Craxone- “Iikagenna Blue”

Hello, darlings. Bugy Craxone has a charming new video in which they spell out the lyrics in cue cards and t-shirts. A lot of work went into timing this just to make you smile!

Gotch- “The Long Goodbye”

It’s been a while since I’ve cared for Asian Kung-Fu Generation, but Masafumi Gotoh’s solo project Gotch is a pleasant surprise. “The Long Goodbye” has a more chill approach than AKFG’s stuff and will be released as a 7″ for Record Store Day. Hopefully he’ll have a more substantial release in the future.

illion- “Beehive”

In other solo news, Radwimps’ Yojiro Noda has released his second illion video. “Beehive” is a creative piece with exploding fruits that swirl around like paint in this dusty studio apartment.

J-Rock Fridays Vol. 31

October 15, 2010

Another posted-after-work edition of J-Rock Fridays.  I’m sorry I spent my afternoon at the new Salvation Army by my house.  Is anyone else creeped out by the black men in red suits?  They were ALL OVER THE PLACE.  Except they couldn’t be nicer.  They literally ran to open the door for me and my mom.  Hm.  Looks like the next J-Rock Fridays column falls just in time for Halloween Super Fun Time.  Post your favorite “masked” bands/videos in the comments and I will probably add them.  I promise not to post too many Beat Crusaders videos!

Good Morning America- 空ばかり見ていた

Ohohohohooh your “ohohohohoohs” sound so good.  But if you’re going to name yourselves after a popular western catchphrase I recommend not spelling your name out in Japanese, thanks!
