J-Rock Fridays Vol. 103

July 19, 2013

It’s been a brain scrambling week thanks to the heat so let’s just cut right to the videos before I collapse.

the milky tangerine- “Setsunai Dance Music”

Beat the summer heat with the milky tangerine’s winter wonderland video. “Setsunai Dance Music” doesn’t have the synths nor the dubstep breakdowns that have become synonymous with modern dance music, but if you’re looking for a fun piece of guitar pop, the milky tangerine will add some color to your playlist.

Momo Kazuhiro- “Rock’n’roll Heart (Is Here To Stay)”

Mo’some Tonebender’s fearless leader is once again on the road in support of his second solo album. This extra long single has plenty of rock’n’roll staples, such as the never ending do-do-do’s.
