Not that I intend to go through there, but it's fun to find some seemingly obscure album and then probably see it on the list.

1. J-Pop is shit
2. "Japanoise" is amazing

>>55593726
I should specify, the key groups in this list are Melt-Banana and Xinlisupreme. While Melt-Banana are a key band in noise punk and thus are pretty well-known, Xinlisupreme never got the recognition they deserved. For a while people were calling them the new Velvet Underground, though. Here's a sample:

some of the guitar work is like debut fall of troy

>>55591195

>>55594184
I can't dig the vocals.

There's so much good japanese psych/noise rock:

Boredoms
Melt Banana

Acid Mothers Temple
Boris
Space Streakings

>>55594283
if you cant at least dig the bassist's vocals then kill yourself

Yeah it's a good album. Id go as far to say its the jp version of loveless.

>>55594261
I wasn't just listing noise groups. The Pillows, Malice Mizer and Glay also have nothing to do with noise, and while Confuse and Envy are kinda noisy, they're in no way noise... just punk. The fact that the only one you pointed out was Kanno makes me think you're probably a weeaboo...
>>
>>55594427
hu dis?
>>
>>55594353
Woah easy there. If the bassist is the girl then yeah I can dig it. The dude is terrible though.
>>
Kinoko teikoku
ichiro_
Tokyo shoegaze
And some of the others mentioned above
>>
>>55594474
Yoko Kanno is fairly popular and not weeaboo-like at all since Cowboy Bebop is actually a thing mostly normies pick on, so there's that. And no I didn't listen to the others you mentioned but why would I talk about them if I haven't heard them.

Fucking this.

A list of others:

Yellow Magic Orchestra - One of the first Japanese electronic groups. They were pretty early in the grand scheme of electronic music overall, too. They tried to replicate the sound of a full orchestra with synths, and it kind of came out like 16-bit game music.
Sample: https://youtu.be/r23gU7JzGNc

Takeshi Terauchi and the Bunnys - Japanese surf rock. He started around the 60's. One of his albums is sort-of /mu/core.
Sample: https://youtu.be/UbSJ0HVwpzc

Supercar - This group started out as standard J-rock and moved on to a unique techno-rock hybrid. Nice chill-out music.
Sample: https://youtu.be/dn85sA9caFs (video is great, btw)

Kinoko Teikoku - Japanese shoegaze. Posted in another thread at some point, the album really impressed me.
Sample: https://youtu.be/aez4WHRdk5o

Sasagawa Miwa - Years ago, I heard a really good sample in some shitty techno song posted on /b/. A little while back, I got bored and sourced it. Japanese folk stuff, it might be kind of hard to track down because her label dropped her.
Sample: https://youtu.be/xcBZiooTfu4 (live performance)

Yellow Loveless - Not an artist, just a compilation album of Japanese artists covering MBV. Worth a listen, it's a good starting point.
Sample: https://youtu.be/Lbf8h3sykiw

Japan's got a pretty cool noise scene, too, if you're into that. A lot of people have recommended most of the bands I'd recommend already, but no one's mentioned The Gerogerigegege yet. Just like Merzbow, don't start with their more famous stuff - most of their "lesser" albums are more interesting and memorable.
>>
Geek Sleep Sheep is great early to mid 90s american alt rock sounding stuff
Bassist of LTS is in it
