NEW ROTE’KA- “Iraira Everyday”

Call in the clown jester! I first heard of NEW ROTE”KA when Toru Hidaka’s super group TV Murders did a song for their tribute album but never got around to listening to it. I guess they’ve been around a while. Who could hate the clown?

J-Rock Fridays Vol. 37

January 21, 2011

Programming the common people’s subliminal orchestra to wake up and say yes.  Rocknrollas let out a doggie howl that’s wasted on Scarface’s shining head.  You’re in treble, boy.  Tonight’s forgotten story.

Pay Money To my Pain- “Deprogrammer”

PTP added disco to their screams.  Turns out pretty good, even the old man in the top hat is dropping balls over it.

myspace band of the week

PeopleJam is a dance-rock-funk band from Tokyo seeking the next groove.  Jik and Ken (also of DirtyMindArkestra) formed PeopleJam in 2005.  Thom and Mzn joined in 2007 and Hrn in 2010.  They’ve hosted a free style dance event called JAMSTAND! in 2006 and 2009 and are currently recording an album.

The first six songs on PeopleJam’s myspace follow the same kind of dance-funk formula.  The vocals are all run through a vocoder and are highly reminiscent Eiffel 65’s Europop.  “Wake Up People” starts off this set with an energized track.  Song’s like “Vaporized” and “Nirvana” are sure to make you dance.  PeopleJam do drop the vocader in two tracks.  “Licks” has more of a traditional indie-rock flair with wild vocals in the style of the telephones while the alternate version of “Dead Livestock” drops the funk backdrop for something a little more epic.

A CD-R for Wake Up People is available at their shows but you can download the Vaporized EP for free on their website.
