Haven't listened to them since Headphone Children. And was thinking of them the other day. I hear their last few albums have been pretty mediocre, but saw that they released one recently. Was hoping it was a return to form. Ningen Program and Shinsou Orchestra were great though.

HAH those two albums wouldve been an all time great double cd. Their first 5 albums were monsters , however Taiyou No Naka No Seikatsu had like 5 great bsides that shouldve been on that album and it would've outshined all of them. Complete miss there.

The self titled album was weak save for a handful of songs, one of which is one of the best all time. Album after that, Pulse is kinda luke warm nothing stand out like your used to hearing from them except for a bside whice of course needed to make the album, not bad just nothing grabs you like other albums. The last album Asylum is very good though its in the same company as the first 5 and yomigeru hi. The first 3 tracks alone could fit right into those two albums you mentioned and you wouldnt think they're out of place.

The first 5 songs listed are brand new. FAKE came out sometime last year. Rock U came out in 2009 (though it was used for COD:BLOPS :lol). The rest all came out a while ago.

Stuff I've heard today...

Tulip (group sounds, here's a 1973 pop song of theirs, very Beatles-esque)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2wbAJzhR69o

Maki Asakawa (1968, this is so cool)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jZScKk26Dk4

BOaT (rock. this is off one of my favorite albums post-2000, the physical CD would cost you over $100 since it's rare now, but lucky for all it's on YouTube!)

Fixed that for you. I don't disagree. But that's all pop, not just kpop. It's all about the marketing machine, and right now it's better in Korea than in Japan, and it's obvious with the huge popularity of Kpop groups in Japan itself.

The only two korean groups that hold a candle to the best japanese groups in other genres are Clazziquai and Delispice, and Delispice isn't around anymore.

Only idol groups in Japan are like that. If you venture out from idol, there's tons of great pop.

I'm not that well-versed in post-rock but World's End Girlfriend is indeed great. The soundtrack to Air Doll is actually my favorite release of his though, and that's way different (not post-rocky at all) than most of his other releases. His new album 7 Idiots is quite good though; Les Enfants du Paradis is a great single!

te' is makes some great instrumental rock. If you like them I recommend Toe, though you might know them already? Their new album For Long Tomorrow is their best yet, but again I wouldn't call it post-rock.

I've seen Mono live before and it was pretty awesome, but I never can get through their albums. BOaT's album RORO I mentioned above has been labeled post-rock before... Natsumen is sort of the post-rock brother of BOaT (after BOaT disbanded, some key members formed Natsumen) and maybe the closest thing to post-rock that I listen to frequently besides World's End, but they actually describe themselves as a "Japanese Progressive HardCore JAZZ Aggressive Improvisation ROCK band." haha

I didn't post them because this thread is mostly full of pop fans. I think you, me, Vard, Antiochus and Inflammable Slinky are the only ones in this thread who have compatible music tastes. No point in bringing up stuff like Number Girl or Bloodthirsty Butchers when no one here is even going to know who they are or even appreciate them I guess.

If you're really interested in broadening your Japanese rock horizons, I'd really suggest visiting Vard's awesome site, Keikaku.net and Greg Bueno's awesome music blog, musicwhore.org. I've been visiting those sites for more than 6 years and they've introduced a great many excellent bands to me. A lot of people seem to think that Japan is only producing plastic pop groups or Visual Kei bands or whatever, but there are a ton of great indie and more underground groups making music along the lines of My Bloody Valentine, Explosions in the Sky, Rites of Spring, Naked City, MC5, The Pixies, Blue Cheer, Television, Gang of Four and stuff that's not even really categorizable.

That is fucking badass, Cell-Scape is one of my favorite albums. I love Agata too, the dude is such an incredibly inventive guitarist. I remember reading an interview with him where he said he'd play Tony Hawk and try to create sounds on his guitar that recreated the mental sensation of those tricks or whatever.

I talked with him briefly. He bowed down to take my band's CD when I gave him a copy, sort of like the whole business card etiquette thing in Japan. Cultural shock. Also, we have the same guitar amp so there was something to bond about.

Sadly I can't make the same noises come out of mine.

Hay, a j-music thread. I tend to listen to Last Alliance, NICO Touches the Walls, Do as Infinity, HIGH and MIGHTY Color and Galneryus quite a bit.

Album Recommendations:
Last Alliance - the sum
Last Alliance - Me and Your Borderline
Galneryus - Reincarnation (if you like power metal)
9mm Parabellum Bullet - VAMPIRE
HIGH and MIGHTY COLOR - San (their best album, imho)
Bump of Chicken - Orbital Period
Do as Infinity - Deep Forest
Maximum The Hormone - Buiiki Kaesu (or however the hell you really spell that)

I also don't know if it counts but
Nujabes - Metaphorical Music
Nujabes - Modal Soul

RIP :(

Will edit in some YouTube links later...I'm sure AnimeGAF has heard a lot of from these bands already...

Haha. Well he plays with a slide, and I'm sure Agata has like ten pedals stuffed down the front of his pants, so that goes a long way. Was he wearing a surgical mask at the gig? If you're into Melt-Banana, you really need to check out Zazen Boys. They're a math/funk/electronic/post-punk/hardcore band that has atonal riffing elements similar to Naked City. It's honestly really hard to pigeonhole them as their sound has changed so much over 4 albums, but they're one of my favorite bands. They actually spun out of my favorite band, Number Girl, which is a post-punk/post hardcore band. So check them both out actually.

Yeah he was rocking the slide a lot. And he had two pedalboards completely full of stuff. I got my spot right in front of him to see what he was up to with everything. He also uses two amps that are insanely loud. A lot of times he just has this really amazing distortion tone without using anything but the amps, I have no idea how he does it. He makes the craziest noises and then just the most powerful rock sound, going between them like it's nothing.

I'll check this stuff out, I'm a fan of Naked City.

I don't really want to clutter up the thread with a bunch of recs unless I'm going to post a summary behind each band, or at least a genre and that's really difficult to do since a lot of the bands I listen to are either difficult to categorize, or play music that spans multiple genres. I'd honestly just check out the links I supplied and read up on some of the stuff there. That's how I started out years ago. I'd just read about some random obscure band, hop on ebay and try to score some CDs. It's a lot easier to procure Japanese music these days as it's more in vogue with adventurous listeners than it was back then when all you could find was pop and visual kei type music being shared amongst anime fans.

Yeah Agata is definitely up there for me when it comes to original guitarists, no one out there sounds remotely like him. He's got a solo album that's pretty awesome too. The Naked City style stuff doesn't really crop up until the band released Zazen Boys 3, which was full of bizarre atonal jamming.
