Let's ignore the shitposter and try to actually talk about music.

Tamahimesama is a pretty fucking great album, however I haven't managed to get to interested in a lot of her other work. How familiar are you with YAPOOS, anything you can recommend?

I've been listening to this a lot recently, it's such a fun album.
>>
>>61982827
Yapoos is amazing. Check this album out, it's my absolute favorite. Their best effort IMO.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7K3hk4qeJoE

I'll check Philharmony out.
>>
Boris is fun
>>
>>61982873

I'm a few tracks in so far and I like what I hear, track 3 is pretty wicked.

You can have this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D0Lim2XmVc4
>>
Akiko Yano or Luminous Orange are probably my favorite Jap artists

>>61982827
Yapoos is really good

>>61983191

Togawa Kaidan is kinda cute I wish it was more Togawa and less Kaidan though.
>>
Suki Suki Daisuki and the first yapoos album are amazing

A lot of people seem to adore those first two Guernica albums. Not my style but I can see why they are loved so much.

>>61983377
YOOOOOOOOOOO how have I not heard of this yet? Holy shit.

Yes. Yapoos are amazing. Have you heard Togawa Kaidan OP? It just came out.

My other favourites include YMO (including their solo stuff) Seiko Oomori and Shiina Ringo (though her recent stuff hasn't been so good.)
>>
First thing that came to mind.

Been going through the dudes catalogue for a while.

Just good fun pop music

>>61983398
I can't stand the vocal, some songs are catchy as fuck though

Tricot for best mix of accessibility and great song writing. The occasional jazz sessions are absolutely insane as well. My favorite band as of now.

This is super cute. What albums of her should I start with (looked her discography up and it seems pretty big so I want some direction).
>>
this thread triggers me
>>
>>61984163
Her first two albums Japanese Girl and Iroha ni Konpeitou are more folk and a little different than that song but still really good

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_J3L1CV1FI4

Gohan ga Dekita yo is where that song was from and starts her using more electronics because she started to get involved in YMO, I'd recommend just going chronologically with her first couple of albums they're all really good

That's not Midori, OP.

YUI is my favourite Japanese artist.

I'm interested in the songs though. What are they about?

sorry, bit of a newfag. What is that exactly?

>>61985189
It's a private torrent tracker. Basically, like The Pirate Bay, but it requires and invite, and it has a set of rules you have to follow.

It's an awesome site. You can find almost everything there.
>>
>>61985257
Alright, sounds good.
>>
>>61985257
very easy to maintain ratio as well, as long as you are not being a piece of shit. (except when you are being a piece of shit by downloading torrents in the first place)
>>
>>61985321
Great :D Tell me your email so I can send you an invite.

The shitposter is right, this is a terrible meme band. Every song sounds like this

>>61985257
How good is jps compared to what? And is it strictly Japanese stuff or do they have Korean and Chinese shit too?

Also do they have Guitar Vader's discog? I've been hanging at 99.9% on a piratebay torrent for ages now.
>>
>>61985366
True lol. It's all in the points.
>>
>>61985410
Do you have somewhere I could send you private messages, so I don't have to post it publically
>>
>>61985439
They have Korean and Chinese stuff too.
Their rips are cleaner, and very rarely you find a torrent with no seeders.

They have Guitar Vader's discography, but only Wild at Honey is in flac.

You probably won't get one, people inviting randoms to jpopsuki doesn't happen often because if he gets banned then you get punished too and can get your whole invite tree banned too

It comes up with an error message when i click the invite

Seeding the huge freeleech 15-30+ gb music shows has always been way easier. My ratio rn is 11.31. FNS, Best Artist, Music Station Super Live, Kohaku Uta Gassen etc.

Kind of missed your chance since nearly all of them happened last month, but look out for Music Station they tend to have special 2-3 hour episodes every couple months and it probably will be freeleech.
>>
>>61986177
> he doesn't possess 5TB for HD porn for when the apocalypse inevitably happens.
>>
does jpopsuki do jazz or ogg vorbis? if so invite pls
>>
>>61986059
My upload speeds rarely go above 10-50kb/s and I only ever have my torrent client open when I'm downloading shit. Most all of my ratio comes from a single freeleech torrent of some memeactress.

>>61986125
Damn, I don't even use my bonus credits, just leave them to rot. Plus I rarely download full torrents which I think means it doesn't count towards your credits.

And if I had the space to have 500GB of porn I'd probably blow it all on 4k impulse downloads and other videos I'd never watch.

>>61986268
After what happened with Fakku I'd probably just dedicate it all to accumulating a massive amount of hentai.
>>
>>61986344
What's Fakku and what happened to it?
>>
>>61983731

Mah nigga. I was introduced to them from /mu/ about a year and a half ago and they're my joint favourite band of all time. As for recs:

Lostage
toddle
Cowpers
Number Girl (well, not really that similar...still definitely worth a listen though)

>>61986543
They got a ton of porn deleted from sadpanda and now is trying to sell them on their site for $30
>>
>>61986543
Fakku is a hentai site that went "legit" and started publishing hentai for a price, which resulted in them forcing exhentai to take down all the stuff that they were selling. This caused a monthlong shitstorm on /a/ and the collective suicides of countless weeaboo neets whose corpses are probably still undiscovered. It was like the holocaust but with hentai and it actually happened.

So I have to ask, because I find a lot of Japanese stuff incredibly difficult to find torrents or even CDs of online most of the time: how should I go about getting hold of all this? Is there a good dedicated torrent website for Japanese music (particularly all the late 70s early 80s stuff) which my google-fu has been far too weak to locate?
>>
>>61988189
slsk and jps
>>
>>61988189
>even CDs of online most of the time

If you want to go down this route, take a look on Yahoo Japan auctions (basically their ebay) and use a proxy buying service in conjunction.
>>
Do you tag your jap albums in English or in kanji?
>>
>>61988381
漢字

>>61988259
I had a quick look through the thread after posting and felt like a bit of an idiot when I saw that JPS had indeed been mentioned. Should've looked first I guess, but now I know I need an invite. The hunt begins. Never used SLSK, how does it work?

>>61988315
May give that a go if the downloading plan doesn't work out.
>>
>>61988381

I used to not really give a shit, but I've started trying to organize my music collection as much as possible now.

I go for the original kanji, and then either the romaji or english translation (as long as it's not a Google Translation) in parenthesis, mainly so I have at least some semblance of which track I'm listening to.
>>
>>61984106
>>61984908

Here is my collection (all their studio albums, a couple singles and a few live albums). Not the greatest quality (between 160kbps-320kbps), but it's better than nothing.

last album i heard from her was love again. anyway i think she deserves a lot of commendation since she was a manufactured idol, but chose to go against the grain by writing nearly all of her lyrics as well as composing and even arranging some of her work. added bonus that quite a few of those songs just happen to be really good

which albums of hers do you like? duty belongs in a museum

>>61984312
Favorite album? I burned Aratamemashite and Shinsekai to a single CD and I think the latter wins by a hair on most days. I listen to both constantly though.

recently, more appeared of her online. this session is good: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=30A6watN2wA

she soundtracked this stage play:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w91peIdX_7U

and today's the first time i've seen this very quiet video of her playing at the top of a tree:

All of Yoshimura Hiroshi's stuff is really solid if you're into nature-tinged progressive electronic and ambient

I've been listening to a comp of jpop idol artists that had singles or songs written by Yellow Magic Orchestra. It's really good. I'll upload it in the current general sharethread. It's also for freeleech on jps.

https://youtu.be/A4yCIu0oobI

Hosono wrote this song:
https://youtu.be/CoyDSkj27dw
>>
>>61982827
I like Hosono but not his albums really. I think this one really meanders, and not much of it seems fully realized. Of course, Sportsman is amazing, and by far the most interesting/catchy/danceable thing on that album. Second being Living-Dining-Kitchen I suppose.
>>
>>61997614
You probably won't like his later works then, when he delves more into ambient in the late 80s/90s until he comes full circle back as a country/folk R&B artist in the late 00s.

But pretty much everything I've heard on "Philharmony" is remarkable how much it stands against today's electronic music like Fennesz, Autechre, OPN and even pop acts like Grimes. The fact that Hosono, a bass player with limited keyboard virtuosity, is able to assemble and mix these sounds and timbre into these dense miniatures of songs and pieces from "Sports Men" to "Happy Birthday" really makes you listen deeper to YMO songs and feel for who was really taking creative reigns on their individual songs on their albums.

>ctrl+f
>no haco

do most of you not care for her much?
I think her solo efforts (for the most part) are on par with her After Dinner work
plus, give me a song that stradles the border between intimacy and distance as well as this

Always heard good things about ACO, and irony in particular (by the way I think youre confusing ACO with haco - insofar as I know, ACO wasn't involved with After Dinner)

But thanks for the rec
>>61998380
Ya know, personally aint too much a fan of Daoko's style, but I actually like the composition on the track you posted - but like with daoko, not much a fan of the voice and delivery

I posted a song by 泉まくら in comparison to daoko's- albeit limited- popularity on /mu/. I have similar concerns about daoko though.

hey, sorry for the delayed reply. all of seiko matsudas 80s albums are great. her 90s stuff isn't that great. I actually was lucky enough to find one of her albums sealed on discogs. It wasn't cheap though.

Are there any more synth albums with traditional instruments or anything similar to

No Honda? For shame. Literally too rare for youtube even.

Haco's amazing, a personal favorite for sure. After Dinner was great, but my favorite is Ash in the Rainbow. The last two Hoahio albums are fantastic too.

aww yeah, great one indeed - I think Riska is my favorite atm (a girl who can/would sing high tension wire to me is all I ask for).

Also, really really enjoyed Secret Garden - definitely one of my fav releases from 2015

amen on Hoahio albums (and you know what, I enjoyed happy mail too)

>>61999118
Have it in the libra, but havent given it a fair shake yet - the concept is pretty cool tho

and FYI, she recently put out this alternate mix of Less than lovers, more than friends (its a live from 2000, but she did some extra production on it) - really loving it

https://soundcloud.com/hacohacodotnet/less-than-lovers-more-than

and goddamn she still looks good
>>
Love Takako Minekawa too
apparently working on a new album with Dustin Wong (and they had a live show last summer with fucking Haco - life is total suffering)
Anyways, I do think her solo work is stronger than what she's put out with WOng, but they've also had some fantastic songs so who knows, maybe they hit the money with the next album?
>>
>>61999346
>https://soundcloud.com/hacohacodotnet/less-than-lovers-more-than
This is great! Thank you.
She's always been pretty cute, sadly there's not many picture of her out there.
>>61999778
She's great. Destron (off of Roomic Cube) is easily one of my favorite tracks of all time. Her new albums with Dustin Wong have been seriously great too, excited to hear more of it and where they'll grow next.
>they had a live show last summer with fucking Haco - life is total suffering
There's so many cool shows in Japan, it's ridiculous. There's EAI festivals going on every second weekend.

Does anyone have Koraechattokinai by Kaientai?

Hey, check out vampillia, they are on the same label (Virgin babylon records) as worlds end girlfriend and kashiwa daisuke. Vampillias new album had songs with jun togawa and bis singing. There's also other guests and collabs (like tujiko noriko) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HIs7yRbpCIU
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XeO8lv-TxSQ

Also i recently found this great rap track by akko gorilla https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jLnMkRViftE

Aaand, shintaro sakamotos (from yura yura teikoku) solowork is amazing, especially i love this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EY6sWifUbrI

Links to the Togawa Kaidan album would be great!

shinsei kamattechan was the band that got me into japanese music. Like 5 years ago i stumbled upon this song https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YqE3oaJmVS0 and got hooked instantly.

i urge everybody to check out high rise, similar to lez rallises, but more rock-ier https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rdlJ_szMK5I

And gotta hype my favorite japanese musician Otomo Yoshihide, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jPnP3Sqi3kQ

>Otomo Yoshihide
He's worked with so many other musicians, it's crazy. IIRC, he did a trio with Bill Laswell and Tatsuya Yoshida even.
