I'm looking for Japanese music. It can be anything pop or rock. I honestly dont even know where to look, or how to pick names. General recommendations on how to find music of that kind would be appriciated as well.

I also look for music of the following bands:
Brazilian Girls
Goldrush
Poni Hoax
OMFO
Mountaineer
Virginia Jetzt!
Arctic Monkeys
Leash
Skywards
Tele
Razorlight
The Pipettes

any mp3 would be appriciated.

please and thank you!

A friend of mine was/is crazy about Hyde. She let me listen to some of his music, I can't remember it very well but I thought it was ok.

Quick Google search:
http://www.hyde.com
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyde_(singer)

edit: hyde.com is all Japanese and stuff...

The only Japanese music I know is from games.
Well, you said anything.
How about a game music inspired, Japanese rock band?

I know of a few Japanese bands, but the only thing that's coming to mind at the moment is Tokyo Jihen.

When I think of more, I'll let you know.

Nina
02-10-2007, 02:43 PM
mrconeman - I checked both out (they took very long to load, I only heard like 30secs) and I really like both! I'd appriciate it a lot if you could upload it for me ;D

Professor Chaos - downloading! I'll tell you what I think in a bit.

Tijs - LimeWire is full of shit and wont find anything, so I'm now looking for the band he's in. :/

02-10-2007, 02:59 PM
Uploading a little compilation of Piano/rock/orchestral songs now, theres only about 5 or 6 tracks in there, but I'll upload more if you hear these and are still interested.

Nina
02-10-2007, 03:02 PM
Awesome, cant wait :]

Tijs
02-10-2007, 03:02 PM
Tijs - LimeWire is full of shit and wont find anything, so I'm now looking for the band he's in. :/According to the wikipedia article I posted he's in a band called L'Arc~en~Ciel (http://www.larc-en-ciel.com/).

Nina
02-10-2007, 03:07 PM
Yeah I know, I meant I tried to download their stuff. But that's not all that easy either, haha.

02-10-2007, 03:11 PM
Ah like that, let me give you a hand then. I'm getting curious myself too.

Nina
02-10-2007, 03:13 PM
I found one downloadable song, then it turned out to be a completely different song with the wrong title. hahaha.

wtf? How do you always do that?
Downloading now and being a little hyper.

Nina
02-10-2007, 03:20 PM
Oh...none of them are in Japanese? Well if the music is good I'll still like it!

Tijs
02-10-2007, 03:23 PM
Well some of the titles are in English, so I guess the lyrics of those songs are in English too, I'll search some more.

My computer is too shitty to upload stuff, but I figured I'd mention my favorite Japanese band: Mono. Amazing post-rock band. One of the best bands I've ever heard.

Yay for J-Rock! A Yes that is a man is always a good way to start a conversation!http://www.scape.sc/images/eternite0014.jpg
lol!

But anyway some good J-rock is Malice Mizer (band in the picture with Gackt)
And if you can get round the girlie looks I would advise you try them. A mix of metal, rock, pop, classical, opera and tencho.

Gardenia with Klaha
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gSbAWq8YReI

Beast of Blood with Klaha
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OLKQvr13wHo

Syinkiss with Gackt
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U8GqXC1xW-A

Bel Air with Gackt
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EjI4e3QEoPQ

Shiroi with Klaha
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xgn2a8Jz9nY


Another is Galneryus who are pretty much the Japanese answer to Dragonforce I feel only with more dramatic vocals

Whisper In The Red Sky
http://youtube.com/watch?v=fY2zbo9RHoA

My Last Fairwell
http://youtube.com/watch?v=ZuILAx-5BoE

Silent Revelation
http://youtube.com/watch?v=rfBI_kmDlNQ


Onmyouza another metal based band with male and female vocals

Tsuki ni murakumo hana ni kaze
http://youtube.com/watch?v=RUGTf2uZYAA


Animetal is also another good one although sometimes know as Animetal Lady as they have a woman singer (and that woman can sing I'll tell ya lol)
Just straight up Speed Metal covers of old and new anime themes with odd bit of classic heavy metal riffs thrown in here and there for good meassure

Zankoku na Tenshi no Teeze
http://youtube.com/watch?v=X5ASzGEecrY

Animetal Lady
http://youtube.com/watch?v=lhBTYiYa5S0

Saku

And I think thats more than enough for you to shake a stick at

02-10-2007, 05:15 PM
Oh my god. J-Rock bands. The only good one listed so far is Galneryus. Check them out, Syu is a fucking GOD. He shreds, man. They're not really anything like Dragonforce though, they're better. Probably more similar to Sonata Arctica or Stratovarius or whatever.

All of these bands are pretty-much essential if you want to get into J-Rock (or J-Metal in some cases):



- Guitar Wolf (Amazing amazing rock band. Did I mention amazing? Also, they're amazing)

- Sex Machineguns (You. Will. Dieoflaughter. A promise. Dieoflaughter being all one word, they're just THAT cool.)

- Japan X (Like...the AC~DC or Black Sabbath or Maiden of Japan. They're the classic. Amazing epic metal band with some occasional orchestral stuff too.)


Check those three out and you'll die happy. Sex Machineguns would be my favourite of the bunch (they're not a "comedy" metal band as such, but they're just fun - don't take themselves too seriously, and play some ultra-fast entertaining catchy speed-metal), but all three are great.

P.S. None of these bands are like "psycho scream/grunt/groan metal" or anything, so don't worry about that. They're all kinda mainstream and accessible and cool, without the depressing yelling bullshit most Euro-metal bands seem to have.

Tizz - The download for the Artic Monkeys has finished. I got their name from a weird (free) magazine and thought I'd check them out. Well, I listened to a few songs of theirs now and I think it was a good decision to check them out :] How did you get to know them?

Downloading Razorlight now. Since when do you like them?




Haruta Kanata (http://www.w-t-f.nl/Asian Kung-Fu Generation - Haruta Kanata.mp3)

Mad Capsule Markets - P.O.P. (http://download.yousendit.com/230098950A18177D) one of their ealier albums, mainly in Japanese, not really any of the synths/samples and such that's in their later ones which also feature a lot more English.

X Japan - Dahlia (http://download.yousendit.com/F6EE4B2B0D55C443) Called X until they put stuff out in the US and had to add the X because of X from LA. Last studio album they released. Mixed English/Japanese.

I never really listened to Japanese music all that much while I was there, but I guess it can't help but stick somehow.

GLAY is pretty much the most famous band ever there. I think they're supposed to be pop-rock, but considering how fast fads came and went in Tokyo, I'm amazed I heard of a band more than once, and these guys were it.

Dragon Ash was also really famous for quite a long time - I think they're supposed to be hip-hop rock or something. You might want to check both of those out, and I'm sure you can probably find them on a torrent site or a p2p program since they're way famous there.
