What is some good music out of Japan? What are some of the best releases to come from Japan or Japanese people? Discuss
Pic related, anything by Ogre You Asshole or Shonen Knife
Japan has been putting out droves of top-tier jazz musicians for the last 7 decades but it never shows up here.
also the pillows, boris, Stop! jap, and asobi seksu are pretty great
fantastic and essential if you want to listen to japanese music
Beautiful Japanese math rock
This is a special moment for me, because it's the first time anyone has ever insulted my tastes in music on /mu/.
I feel honoured to finally know that somewhere in the world, somebody hates my taste in music.
>tfw discovering new music this good
Always a great feeling.
YMO is fucking god tier and so is all of the guys' solo projects, I was turned on to them by my dad who has been a massive fan of theirs since the 70s and owns like all of their shit
I've never seen 猫又Master posted on /mu/ ever.
工藤礼子 - 夜の稲
taj mahal travelers - august 1974 (free improvisation/drone)
不失者 - 悲愴 (noise rock)
acid mothers temple & the melting paraiso u.f.o. - la nòvia (psych rock)
les rallizes dénudés - heavier than a death in the family (noise/psych rock)
Lately I quite like Infinity Eighteen vol.2, hard to believe 15 years ago idols were releasing music like this!! Some songs can be considered trip-hop I guess, and j-electro.
half the album can be heard here http://nhac.hay.mn/nghe-album/infinity-eighteen-vol-2.XFpQV0c=.html
Does anyone have an invite to Jpopsuki they can send to me?
I actually want to download some Hosono and Sakamoto albums. The only thing I really have to offer are the Number Girl Kiroku Box Live Sets and compilations and Zazen Boys I-IV, all ripped by me.
Luminous Orange is severely underrated Shoegaze. Probably the best Shoegaze I've heard from Japan.
