Normally when I surf YouTube I wind up on the freaky weird side of the Internet. It's a curse.

BUT! I found this. Genki Sudo with World Order. Apparently he used to be a mixed martial arts fighter. From what I've found, he only has one album with these guys, but it's pretty great. All of the videos have the same type of choreography. It's pretty amazing. It's upbeat, but I think I could probably sleep to this as long as I didn't have the interesting videos.

This one is my favorite.

Sakanaction - Identity

Aqua, you should definitely check out their album from last year.
I raved about it, of course.
(updated several links to even more PVs)

Along the same electronic rock lines, I just became obsessed with Hare-Brained Unity. I've known about them, but didn't really get around to finding their stuff.

I really like this song, Infinity. The stupid auto-tune gimmick isn't as jarring in this song. I really hate autotune, but I want to love this band.

According to my BBS notes, I was supposed to check out HBU at least 4 years ago. :lmfao: That was probably before the heavy autotune vocals too. I'm kicking myself now, because it'll be a bitch to track down the old albums with what's happening with upload sites now.

The White Stripes - Icky Thump album. I've been doing an iTunes relisten over the past few months and I'm finally getting near the end. Never doing it again. Interesting to see how much stuff I never listened to in full though.

This group does covers of popular english songs in Japanese (some japanese covers too). It's interesting to hear their versions, I don't know if I like them as much/more than the originals, but they make it work really well, so I give mad props for avoiding trainwrecks. It seems their earlier covers keep more english and the rapper only changes the rap parts hm.

I "finally got around to" listen to the songs I took notes during the Top 40 singles of my favourite radio station (= only radio station that I actually like/is worth listening to) and this song is pure beauty:

and

David Guetta - Turn Me On (feat. Nicki Minaj) - I didn't know Nicki could sing. I was confused at first listening to the song wondering who the girl was and not making the connection till I saw the MV. Derp~

It's MAAYA SAKAMOTO WEEK On PQs iPod! (Though I should say Maaya with Yoko Kanno since that's my favorite type of Maaya.) Posted Image

Here are few of my personal favorites.

Yakusoku ha Iranai (Though I've been listening to the one on Yoko Kanno's Raichikyuu Kinen album which is a shorter version, the original is still one of my favorite songs.)
Kiseki no Umi (Links I found are live, and you can hear how much her voice as changed over the years considering the two songs were from when she was still very young.)

Kingfisher Girl

And also, did you know Karen has a new single out? Junjou Hanafubuki (BT on H!O) Tsunku was involved, so you better go check it out. Boogie Woogie Enka Pop!

Very nice, just started listening to Yoko Kanno. When I've finished bankrupting myself with Yuki Kajiura records I'll move onto Yoko Kanno :thumbsup:.

Just get the Raichikyuu Kinen Collection Album "SPACE BIO CHARGE" album to start with since it's basically all of her best stuff shoved onto a Best of Album. It's 3 discs of HAPPY! (She's also known as Gabriela Robin, though she's never come out and said it's her.)]

After you've bankrupt yourself with Yuki Kajiura and Yoko Kanno you can move onto Akino Arai. (Who also worked with Yoko Kanno)

Most notable songs being

Hiru no Tsuki
VOICES
Adesso e fortuna ~Honoo to Eien~

And at 50, she's still releasing music today. Has two albums coming out on April. :D (So excited!)

Now let me make this very clear, nobody, and I mean NOBODY, is to suggest any more hugely talented female Japanese composers for at least a year.

At this rate I'll have to go back to selling my body on the street again, and, let's be honest, I didn't make much money last time although I still get Christmas cards from several clients.

Twin!

But mine has been the Escaflowne OST mixed with various Maaya songs. Her voice is clean, sweet, and pure. I love it. Hemisphere seemed to light a creative fire in me because after listening I sat and plotted out an entire novel. I don't know when I'll have time to write it hehe.

So, I downloaded Maaya Sakamoto's You Can't Catch Me album and the 2nd disc has live performances (recorded) from her 15th anniversary concert from Budokan, which was held on her 30th birthday.

She has a special medley with Yoko Kanno which I thought was amazing so I had to find it on youtube. SHARING NOW~ The costumes though. Posted Image

No...at first I though I thought it must be some heavy duty crinoline or startch. But having never seen crinoline in action that I can recall I have no idea how her dress is so... big. And she moves around very awkwardly. I guess mid way through it looks like she's moving on wheels or something, but I saw her shoes so she's not.

In the end I think it just makes her look like a giant marshmallow. Kanno on the other hand, looks like the hunchbutt of Budokan.

And despite the throwing up of feathers and sparkles makes me appreciate some of the outfits H!P get.

I've got Namie Amuro's new songs, Go Round and YEAH-OH, stuck in my head. It doesn't help that I've watched, like, all of the news coverage for YEAH-OH. Both of the PVs are kind of boring, but Go Round does some interesting visual effects (for a pop video at least) and YEAH-OH is extremely catchy and the dance is mesmerizing.

The singe should already be out. Need some HQ versions immediately.

I found out BECCA released a best of album last month before the earthquake hit and I just found it now. I loved Becca when she was with Bennie K, and she does an English version of Dreamer and KAMINARI GIRL on the album with them as well as covers Heart's Alone. It's a pretty good best of album. :dance:

I also found BECCA yesterday (and the collab she did with Bennie K, titled Bennie Becca). She sounds quite promising. ;/

I used BECCA's Best album this morning, and slept completely through the first track. I woke up just fine during the second, but then my problem was that I didn't want to get out of bed and just wanted to keep listening. :dance:

Gah. GAH! :angry:


:puppyeyes: I didn't notice your second BECCA post! FORGIVE MEEEE!!!! :cryalot: I would have found it earlier if I had.

SO Becca's joined a new band called Stars in Stereo, and they're the opening act for another band's US tour this May and June. :eekrun:

(Here's where I tag PQ, Wapiko, Zaeleus, and AEUG.)

She released a Best album in Japan last year. I think that had some new stuff, but I'm not sure since it was all new to me.

Shows are listed at http://theused.net/ , if you'd like to gander.
