J-Rock Fridays Vol. 88

January 11, 2013

We’re not done with the best videos of 2012, but we needed to take a break to highlight the new videos of 2013 so we don’t fall behind. Some sad news, it was just announced K from Pay money To my Pain passed away on December 30. You will be missed!

Shugo Tokumaru- “Call”

A whimsical advertisement from the clothing label FRAPBOIS. Normally they make music videos with real people wearing their designs, but for some reason they decided to go the animated route for their 2013 catalog. I can’t imagine this will lead to more sales, but Shugo Tokumaru just released a great new album everyone’s talking about so at least they got their name out there.

Keishi Tanaka- “Wonderful Seasons”

Keishi Tanaka has kept busy since his band Riddim Saunter broke up in 2011, releasing a solo EP and an album as part of the supergroup The Dekits last year. Now Tanaka is ready to release his debut solo album. “Wonderful Seasons” is a happy little song celebrating the little things in life.

Shintaro Sakamoto- “From the Dead”

Bongos and horns! Shintaro Sakamoto has woken up the walking dead with his funky new single. It seems they rather dance than cause a ruckus though.

October 19, 2012

Everybody’s looking forward to the weekend.

kindan no tasuketsu- “Toumei Kan (Album ver.)”

Japan’s brightest new indie band has released a new version of their first PV in time for the release of their debut album. The album version of “Toumei Kan” contains 100% less furries but otherwise sounds the same as the original, which was apparently co-written with beat maker Idiot Pop who also just released an awesome dance album.

J-Rock Fridays Vol. 64

February 10, 2012

Presenting the best J-Rock videos of the week…

GRAPEVINE- “Rakuen”

Leave it to GRAPEVINE to take a seemingly innocent song and make a traumatic video about a group of men up against the wall waiting to get gunned down. At least they went to “heaven.”

Three day weekend!

white white sisters- “wasted”

The white white sisters are back with a new chaotic tune. Not as memorable as “imperfect conflict” but still nuts. Let’s not talk about the shooting white liquid!

J-Rock Fridays Vol. 15

March 5, 2010

It was a little hard compiling a list of bands this week, seeing as capsule released their new album on Wednesday and that’s all I’ve been wanting to listen to, but I managed to find 11 anyway.  Have fun.

sakanaction-“目が明く藍色”

Sakanaction’s new single isn’t very dancey.  I was not expecting a power ballad from this band, a seven minute power ballad for that matter.  I guess we know why this wasn’t the first single.
