J-Rock Fridays Vol. 86

Christmas and New Years are coming up. There may be an end of the year wrap coming up soon but for now new videos!

Post Modern Team- “Never Let You Down”

Another ano(t)raks band decided to make a music video this week, this time Post Modern Team with one of my favorite songs of the year. “Never Let You Down” is a sweet, simple little tune aptly put to video with a girl running through the flower fields.

Take Ambulance- “Keys In Your Rubble of Hopes”

Take Ambulance are rather proud of their cuss storm that takes place in the middle of this video. Not only is it the only line they bother to subtitle, but they even printed out t-shirts to wear in the video. Hilarious!

myspace band of the week

The Valves is a new garage rock band from Tokyo. The band members are Takeshi Kaji (vocals, guitar), Jean (guitar), Junichi Ishida (bass) and Takashi Kanda (drums). Takeshi Kaji is the lead vocalist/guitarist of The Rodeo Carburettor most known for the end theme “Speed of Flow” from the Gintama anime series. From the looks of it, The Rodeo Carburettor may have broken up some time ago. The Valves released their first album Feed Back Club May 28 despite only forming earlier this year.

Feed Back Club is available at iTunes and Amazon. Samples are available at myspace.
