Boo! Music I was uploading for my friend to try different artists.
I also just got an Audioscrobbler account so if anyone is curious as to what's currently in my playlist (and I've already warned people numerous times about my dubious taste in music) my user name is emika.
175R: Party - (pop/rock) This is my favorite 175R song. It just makes me happy when I listen to it. I went to an 175R concert in Nagoya about two weeks ago, which was awesome! It was my first large Japanese show and the audience was fabulous, the band really put on a good show and best of all they also did this song even though it's off one of their older albums.
Chemistry: Running Away (Spanish Passion) - (r&b) I have been iffy on Chemistry for a long time. This duo does have a pleasant harmony going on however. My mother of all people is actually the person who requested I buy her a Chemistry album o_O This song has a nice acoustic Spanish styled guitar in the background and a terrific beat. A bit of swing without being overbearing.
Katamari Damacy: The Moon and the Prince - (game) Katamari Damacy was the sleeper game of the year in the US. If you haven't played it you should! Not only is the simplistic game play of rolling up anything and everything on the earth addicting, but the soundtrack is well put together. A great mix of jazz, samba, techno, classical and funk. This is my favorite song from the soundtrack. It's a slightly more funky, pseudo-rap song.
Kick the Can Crew: キックOFF (Kick OFF) - (rap) Okay my friend has firmly made me a huge KtCC fan! The three guys are now doing solo projects (Kreva's solo CD isn't half bad either), but hopefully they haven't broken up for good and are pulling more of a Destiny's Child. This is from the Vitalizer album, my personal favorite so far. The guitar track laid behind the rap showcases the range KtCC uses. Their song "super orignal" doesn't lie. (boy that sounded cheesy, even to me >.<)
Kick the Can Crew: TORIIIIIICO (feat. CASSETTE) - (rap) A faster song than Kick OFF. This is my favorite song off of their magic number album. There is just no way you can't feel cheerful when listening to this and start bouncing around in your chair.
Natural Punch Drunker: Start on Me - (pop/folk rock) This was my cheap CD purchase of the week (I troll the used CD store once a week and try to buy an album for under 500yen that I've never heard before) They are a cute rock/popish band. Nothing really special so far, but I would be willing to listen to more. This song is all in English, not bad English either. It has a cute happy vibe.
Road of Major: 僕らだけの歌 (Bokura dake no uta, song just for you) - (rock) Just to get it out of my system, the lead singer is HOT! Alright I'm done now. RoM is a great rock band although I'm more partial to the sound of Bump of Chicken. Hopefully I can snag tickets to the RoM concert in June *fingers crossed*
Didn't get a chance to upload everything I wanted...coming soon songs from the new Spitz album, LOVE PSYCHEDELICO, GO!GO!7188 and some shamisen music.
