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.

mitsume- “Utsuro”

Summer time go to the beach. Mitsume’s new single has the boys tripping in water and doing funny dance moves all over town while the guitars wail to the sound of old teen beach movies.

go!go!vanillas- “Ningen Sanka”

Go!go!vanillas walk around town in this cool four panel rock’n’roll video. I’m a little disappointed their bassist stole Beat Crusaders’ Taro Kato’s look but I’ve been spinning this single since February and am just happy they’re finally putting out an album.

J-Rock Fridays Vol. 94

April 5, 2013

Another column of videos I already featured on Tumblr! It’s okay, but I’d like to get some love on my real blog every once in a while too. By the way, I finally added “J-Rock Explosion” to our header image. Maybe I’ll change it again in another 6 years…

a flood of circle- “Dancing Zombiez”

The Walking Dead may have ended its season last Sunday, but the walkers have decided to “dance” for a special J-Rock video. Will a flood of zombies eat this rock trio or get a drum stick to the eye?

uhnellys- 「体温」

Rap/rock duo uhnellys takes us on an emotional ride as a man says goodbye to his wife on her deathbed. We see him breakdown and eventually accept her passing, a very moving and accurate portrayal of anyone who has lost a loved one.

sugardrop- “Love Scene”

Fall asleep where you are. The lead singer of sugardrop performs his version of planking with a blanket, which includes some humorous locations such as an escalator and the middle of the freaking street. He better be careful or this will turn into a crime scene!
