ITT: God-tier Japanese.

Also, if anyone knows what the fuck any of these lyrics mean...
>>
she says "kawaii" a lot
>>
>>52414674
This is true
>>
>>52414465
You know this is one of my favorite albums. I even bought it on vinyl and got a lyric sheet with it, but I never actually made any effort to discover what the lyrics are.

Also this is one of the best live albums ever made.
>>
>>52414811
I probably wouldn't be as interested if I hadn't been learning Japanese for a couple years. I'll check this live thing out.

Fishmans - Long Season
>>
>>52414948
Depends what genre you want to get into, there's a lot of different shit in there. Also, Kinoku Teikoku is Mushroom Empire, start with "eureka" if that's what you where asking.
>>
>>52415061
my bad, had never seen a translation. I have Eureka but haven't been able to get into it yet.
>>
>>52415084
No worries. Eureka is a great album if you like math rock or shoegaze or both. Would recommend.

>>52415030

Is there anything in the same vein as mouse on the keys? or Toe? but with no lyrics? I like how the japanese write music, but I hate when they sing it.

A good example is the NGE soundtracks and the Gran Turismo Soundtracks.

pretty good, didn't like the processed drums. The piano parts had a little too much going on compared to MotK, but song structures were good, build ups were great. 7/10 will delve deeper.
>>
>>52414811
Any idea where I could find a copy on vinyl nowadays? I've been looking for forever trying to find one.
>>
>>52416945
Te gets compared to toe a lot, and you can see why by listening to it, but IMO it's not nearly as good.

About Tess and Hitorie both have that mathy goodness but lose the jazz influences that make toe and MotK great. Hitorie also has vocals on every track so you probably won't like that.

Pele did a collab with toe I think? They're associated somehow. Their stuff is good, really nice percussion, but they play the rock aspect of their music pretty straight. Worth checking out though.

To pivot in the other direction Serph is a Japanese producer that keeps the jazz influence but comes from a much more electronic direction

Babymetal.

From what I gather, they're mostly about lost love and sex.

Also, The Stalin are an incredible punk band.

is "3nd" supposed to be intentionally poor english or is it like "sand"?

>number girl
How do I into number girl? I tried School Girl Distortional Addict and wasn't really blown away. It sounded like garageish rock with kinda subpar vocals and hooks that tease at being great but kinda fall flat. Would I be better off starting with a different album, or a different mindset, or is it just not for me?

Borrowing thread, does anyone know any jazz artists where the piano is heavy and dissonant, but still really groovy, maybe even a bit goofy like on Chiharu no Koi for example?
Not necessarily Japanese.

OP here. Thanks to everyone who boot'd, didn't expect this to turn out so well. If this thing is still going I'll try and organize some stuff so we can get a much needed collection of Japanese stuff going (not to say there isn't a plethora of genres on here).
