at some point, someone on youtube made a video called "ebola chan tribute" that featured a song i enjoyed and said song was even uploaded on youtubebut then the song's official video was gone, so the video about ebola chan was the only thing with the song leftyears ago, that video disappeared too and i can't find the song anywherethese are some details i still remember>the song's name was probably "happy morning">there was some piano at the beginning>name of the artist was something close to "tamara" or "tahara", i can't quite remember the name well>it was some upbeat song too i guess and there was a cute girl singingis anyone here at least aware of something close enough?i still have it in my head and it's been yearsit's driving me insane
Holy shit I thought the telephones were long broken up so I didn't realize they were back. That was one of the first bands I really got into when I started listening to Japanese music.>>24767970God TAMTAM when they first started out were awesome. That sort of cosmic dub sound was really original and their live videos were always killer. Then they just dropped all of it and turned really, really shitty.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y7uTm0dhrxoIt's so painful.

>>24983931That was a really good song for less than 1h of work. The message at the end was really nice too.
I don't frequent these threads but last time I was here maybe 4 months ago someone posted a really cool song I don't know the name I was hoping any of you would know what I'm talking about. It had a Tatsuro Yamashita vibe to it but it might have been a recent production? I dont remember much else other than the album cover having pastel blues and yellows, maybe a sketch of a sort and a year on it which I don't remember. Sorry if thats really vague but I'm just trying to find it
>>24985475Nevermind I fucking found it. It had that Tatsuro Yamashita vibe because he's the one who sang it lolhttps://youtu.be/fH-98i5J6ME

>>25129813mikey from tokyo gegegay
>>25107313i guess shinsei kamattechana lot of people seem to not really like their output besides tsumanne, or at least starting with their 6th album, eiyuu syndrome.unlike others i dont think its an issue with going major at all, going by noko's (the lead) streams warner music is incredibly hands off and he'd never change his style on instruction, which i think is part of the issue.noko for the most part is an auteur to a fault so when he runs out of ideas and decides to stick to a formula, or to stick with subpar sound engineers/producers, the band's output suffers for it.
>>25129813that's an amazing video. wow
can someone help me figure out what song is constantly playing in my head?https://onlinesequencer.net/1571658i remember that it's like mid 2010s, japanese idol (singular) teen, song was called something like plastic planet, or planet plus, or something with a P alliteration. the girl went pretty ham on the dancing during the "e-a-b, e-a-b, e-a-b" part and she says something like "suki plus, suki plus, suki plus" while shooting a finger gun (the kind that utilizes the whole forearm)
>>25133606nevermind, found ithttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OEYvI83qPWw
>>25132018Oh wow thanks. How did you know? Any good songs from them?
>>25132018Oh wowhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nRWw-SfmLNware they gay?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z8rly_GCRoA
>>25139413>are they gayWhat do you think?
>>25132598英雄Syndrome is one of their best I think, and 児童カレテ is also great. It's a bitter statement, but noko really seems to create his best during periods of strife, and as you know success hasn't fixed all of the problems he had when he first recorded music, nor has it changed his nature that produced such extreme music to begin with. つまんね is incredible from a musical standpoint, but it's also very hard to build on, so I've come to accept we won't ever get a true successor to it. For me, the spirit that went into those very early demos is still there now, and you can feel it in new tracks like 聖マリ even if they don't cut quite as deep. The feelings are still there, so it's enough for me.
>>25140749To be fair Seimari got a demo like 10 years ago, they only got around to recording it now. He's still one of the best melody makers out there in my opinion, and I hope you're right about the strife thing since these last two years have been rough for him and we usually get a 2 - 3 year delay in songs he writes before he releases them. Apparently he's been practicing his piano skills during corona which might show results in the future. I just think someone else just needs to get into the creative process because in my opinion he's lost his ear for arranging songs in an interesting manner.
Is this actually Utada Hikaru?
>>25132598I'd say they fallen off around '13 or '14, but I really liked their last album. But yeah, just wasn't a big fan of their music for the better part of a decade but I like Noko and if he and the band are making the music they like, then by all means they should be happy.
>>24995073boy I really like X even though I'm new to them.when I listen to them I feel like my overdue rebelious adolescent phase is finally starting
>>24987834babymetal is good though
Does anyone have some overly-french sounding japanese music? I guess stuff with lots of accordions/melodicas and plucked strings.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G3s-wzUy2_Mhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fPRuGq0udqI
>>25193120I need more like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PI1vk3hza_Q
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hA18Y-mf3IYJO1 just release a preview of their latest single.
>>25200975Related since they're both former vocaloid producers, but I thought the new Yonezu album was also pretty good
>>25213350Which one is your fav track, anon? I really dig Himawari and Kanden. Also, his Machigaisagashi cover is unironically better than Suda imo.
>>25238213Honestly as cliche as it might be given its popularity, probably Paprika, genuinely a beautiful song. Then I also really liked Decollette and Yasashii Hito from the non-singlesI kind of get what you mean about Machigaisagashi but listening to it I felt the lyrics fit Masaaki's voice better, if that makes sense. The album arrangement is a lot better though

Any similar bands to recommend?
>>25276317Also anything related to japanese jazz, stuff similar to nujabes, uyama hiroto, or fox capture plan? I listened to haru nemuri as well.
>>25276317I became a fan of Petrolz mainly because they were recommended to me when I listened to Tricot live. These guys have a good blend of Jazz and Pop.https://youtu.be/aYRGVa4K6JMhttps://youtu.be/ZmuzWEdVg3Yhttps://youtu.be/ek2BThAmsKw
>>25276317Might be a cliche rec in general but Zazen Boys, especially live performances for a lot of songs they have the same almost-but-not-quite-mathrock style tricot has, with one or two tricot songs sounding very similar to Zazen Boys (tricot's telekinesis and pork ginger, someone familiar with both tell me i'm not just imagining it)they draw from a lot more genres and from japanese buddhist & rakugo themes so I'd recommend them in general if you want something althttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ap6IjS1g3JYhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wcu19bg9CIchttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0-ZjYq8-SHw

>>25276317https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lln2NPx3aKwI really like this song, specifically this live version, but most of their other stuff is kinda tame and doesn't scratch the same itch for me.
>>25316764i feel these two go hard like that onehttps://youtu.be/KtKsyUin8r4?t=681https://youtu.be/nQd-Nj4eH48
The first half of this album is seriously some of my favorite music of all time. The atmosphere and instrumentals are insane. Such a shame that they didn't continue down this path and now just put out decent pop music. Wish there was more music like it.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YgukUfdRLRo
>>25320203They're gone now. Chiaki is doing solo stuff but most of it is pretty generic pop.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a50mx9uvR8IHer pre-kinoko stuff was good though.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pRO4Eh_mGkg
Italians pronounce Japanese very well.https://youtu.be/c3F8kLoazGg

Any Shibuya-kei recs?More upbeat poppy stuff like CHAPPIE, Plus Tech Squeeze Box, Shinowa or Cecil.Also is there still a Shibuya-kei scene nowadays or is it pretty much indistinguishable from Twee Pop or Chamber Pop stuff now?
been jamming to Mass of the Fermenting Dregs lately, any recs for something similiar?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kSDCEwuOVD0Livestream started about 20 minutes ago. This guy is an awesome piano player.
>>24753735At the start of the pandemic, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu posted a bunch of live videos to her YouTube channel. They’ve all been taken down now. I think they were from dvds or blurays. Where can I buy those online? Does she have a digital store for her western fans?
New Shinsei Kamattechan music videohttps://youtu.be/N73vc7IWdzE
>>25849295I wonder if the odd mixing in his videos is deliberate. They tend to sound worse than the LP versions, but a lot of what sounds off would be easy to fix, so I suppose he may prefer it that way. The rough version of 夕方のピアノ is great though
>>25854398They're all rough demos recorded by himself in his home studio so he probably just doesn't have the software, equipment, or know-how, but he probably also just likes it that way.I think his entire music philosophy, if you want to call it that, is centered around the song's main melody; the recording and mixing is usually sloppy and comes second to the melody, which always comes through very clearly
>>25821473pretty sick, know any more?
>>25326014is that benitos daughter?
>>25819380Maybe too obvious but Ging Nang Boyz/Going Steady, Creephyp, Sambomaster. The one you posted also kinda reminds me of acts like Helsinki Lambda Club or andymori.
Anyone able to recommend me anything that has this same kind of sound?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2eo_ytwFKo4
I've known this band for 9 years. I realized Tsumanne/Minna shine will be 10 years old this year and had this thought creep into my head about how whether there's any new music now in 2020 that can resonate with hikkineet fuckups in the same way that those 2 albums did with me back then. I feel like the current zeitgeist isn't really conductive to that kind of music getting produced anymore. It's a very sincere sound that employed a classical form of irony (juxtaposing lyrical tone with major key composition) but currently it doesn't even register as irony to people because it's not comically exaggerated, detached, misanthropic self-mockery presenting itself as self-awareness. All that aside information and media dilution by sheer volume makes it functionally impossible to find any genuinely good underground stuff on streaming sites and share blogs are dead so how would I even find anything analogous to them anyway? hahahttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u6mFTRlukTA
>>25917945a lot of self-produced underground japanese artists are on soundcloud now, search through some tags and you're bound to find something analogous they might not all be underground or recent, but Noko/the person who made all those songs said some of his main japanese influences are >togawa jun >kinniku shojo tai>hirasawa susumu>fishmans>boredoms/yamatsuka ai>kurahashi yoeko>jagataraso going through them might give you something musically similar
>>25918368That's a fucking based list
>>24767970This shit hurts my ears man.
>>25276317Finally a non-garbage rec.
>>25854398I'm used to their demos sounding rough. Most of the time they have a certain noisy charm to them.
>>25909023hadn't heard all of these, they're pretty sweet thanks chief
>>25915999still hoping somebody can rec some 90s j-rock with a clear 80s western influence. JDK is about the only one I know of
>>24987834B O R I SORIS
>>25917945> how would I even find anythingSpend a night at Japanese music club and you'll have whole bunch of promising bands no one in the West have never heard of. Basically, what makes its way into the West is more-or-less well-known in Japan - of course relatively - mainstream stuff is just know, for independent stuff it's well-known on relevant scenes. Yet Japanese music scene is full of vibrant bands exploring the darkest corners of music and beyond which will never make it past club scene and self-produced CD made on home CD-burner.
what else should i listen to if i like tentenko and koto?
>>26000676Their new album Nanka suru seinen is really good. I was initially afraid of that two disc set since it usually ends up feeling like over-long chore which would be better with some trimming but they really made it work. Their best release since GG reforming and finally an album that made me really feel like them coming back as BBHF was truly meaningful.
>>26024443They released a single earlier this year that I wasn't the biggest fan of, and their other releases including most of Galileo Galilei were hit and miss for me, so I was a bit apprehensive about the album but I agree, it turned out pretty good. Doesn't feel like a double album and goes by without overstaying its welcome.I liked this trackhttps://youtu.be/e9PrTzQoILkAnd the lyrics in this one https://youtu.be/1AEssR5mVRY
>>25972141Do you have any recommendations for noise pop from 2017-present? I did something similar at one point (looking up a lot of small supporting acts for shows) but couldn't find anything expect slightly quirky vanilla pop.
>>26030791Not him but I recommend searching through shoegazing bands as well considering how tight-knitted the genres are. Maybe also some post-rock.https://youtu.be/4YC7QD2ruwohttps://youtu.be/9rfqXShuGughttps://youtu.be/d5Noeczgliw

Anyone knows of any japanese music store that allows you to buy digital and DRM-free?
>>26095317quite a few but OTOTOY is really useful for that since they also take paypal which very few stores doyou can buy lossless and lossy files, and they're all DRM-free, once you download them the files are yours to do with as you pleasethey don't have everything though even if it is on spotify so temper your expectations
>>24948278I heard news about a private facebook leak, but missed it. Anything interesting?
>>26128826No idea. Was this recent? Doing a web search only brings back a minor happening from 2015 where Akane's private facebook account was mentioned, and people tried to be her friend on Facebook.
>>26129484It was Akane's. I thought it was recent, but maybe I got it wrong.Actually, I web searched too, and google says a reddit link is from 2015, but the page itself says Apr 25 this year.
>>25042552>>25129813I immediately fell in love with this song and can't stop listening to it. It's been a while since I found a song like that.Thx.

>>24987834https://youtu.be/5DjFpPSuGR0I don't know if this counts as metal. I like heavy but no wailing and gnashing of teeth. So it's probably babymetal level.
