Bathe your toes in the window sunight with Rina Katahira. She can rock out on either an electric or acoustic guitar and still come off as sincere and cute. “On’na no ko wa nakanai” show that girls don’t cry. They just write songs about their problems and will probably be paid handsomely for it.
She might look at mess with her stringy just woke up hair and her football jersey over dress outfit. Yet she sings like Tomoko Kawase and can strum a guitar like the best of these girl singer songwriters.
Her single “On’na no ko wa nakanai” is dropping 1/15/2014 at Yesasia and CDJapan.

Prepare to lube up. Trip Men are thrashing about in their amazing New Jack Swing meets punk rock combo “Jack Boozer.”
Mashing up styles can be fun, sometimes it can be a disaster. TRIP MEN skirt the issue by making high energy rap over sped up new jack swing horns and beats and throwing in some electric guitar to balance things out. Surprise! It works.
The director of this crazy video is Kussy Pussy. Hooray!
TRIP MEN is rolling your way with their album I’ll Be Back slated for a 12.18.2013 release. Score it at Yesasia or CDJapan.

Get red in the face with anger with Gagaga SP. “Jidai wa Mawaru” is a mouthful of words that stutters its way out with the help of scary energetic lead singer’s Cozzak Maeda.
It’s punk at it’s best. Even better is the Sunset Bus T-shirt. Nice.
Gagaga SP have a new album Kudamaki Otoko no Akitaran Seikatsu
dropping on 12.18.2013. Look for it at Yesasia

Holy Christmas bells, this snuck passed me. Band jyanaimon! don their seasonal santa apparel in the wonderful “Yukifuru Yoru ni Kiss Shite.”
The girls are adorable in their poses, their weird sideways floor exercises, their Christmas red dresses and jumping on beds. Most exciting is when they beat each other up in the rock solo.
The only thing cooler would be to see the band in their underwear. Luckily, you can if you check out the cover of this single at CDJapan and Yesasia. Buy it on 12.18.2013.

Fabled Number “We don’t care what you break my mind” is your new EDM rock jam. IT IS DAMN IT!
This kind of came out of no where. Electro Rockers Fabled Number release their 1st EP on Nov 11th, 2013 and two weeks later I get my jam on and it’s not even Thanksgiving yet. The band do everything right on this baby.
Devo inspired outfits, 90′s rave culture lights, fractured guitar riffs, and jumpable moshable funtime rock music. Break your mind, it hurts so good. Also the lead singer sounds like he’s singing through a seizure which is inspired. He also dances like a robotic Forest Gump. Amazing!
Fabled Number’s Might Makes Right is available at Yesasia and CDJapan.

In-sist return to bring the hip hop and the funk and the jams in their 5th album HIPSTORY released 9.25.2013.
If you were undecided about buying the album, well now you can hear every song on the album as well as see clips from what looks like videos for every song as well. These dudes are cooler than school and know how to rock it out and rap it out.
You can buy HIPSTORY at CDJapan. Visit the band’s website and see some cool characatures of the band members.
It’s a nighttime rooftop dance-a-thon for Himekyun Fruit Can in their latest exhausting video for “Moratorium.”
It’s dark and kind of blurry, but when the girls come into focus, you better watch out. Umbrellas are brandished, bubbles are blown, clocks are sledgehammered and balloons are deflated just like your dreams of meeting these girls.
I dig any pop idol song with guitars and “Moratorium” will have you chugging along in joy. Stick around for the guitar solo if you feel the urge to air guitar.
The single Moratorium is slated for 12.18.2013 at CDJapan.

A-B-C-D-Eo. Keiichi Sokabe rolls through a disco beat in the clever video for “汚染水.” Plus, we get zombies.
There is even a little Bob Dylan homage going on in this video. So clap your hands everybody, everybody clap your hands.
This single is dropping on 12/3/2013 which you can read about HERE. You might be able to buy it through ROSE Records. Yet this link shows it’s sold out??
We dig into some Halloween Candy in November and open up the new SiM album Pandora.
The cool this is using my new iPhone 5s and it’s front facing camera now takes full frame video. Also Adobe Premiere effects is allowing me to adjust my audio and background soundtrack levels better!
Now I just need to figure out to upload at a higher quality! Still I hope you enjoy these, because I’m having a blast making them.
GLIM SPANKY is blues rock with a side of funk crafted to perfection under two shining stars: the fabulous and sexy lead singer Matsuo Remi and the guitarist Kamemoto Kiroki.
Together this duo will set blues rock on fire. Their single “ダミーロックとブルース” is one stiff drink and an 8 ball in the corner pocket bar jukebox blast. You feel it from the beginning. B-b-b-b-b-b-badass.
If you are a music freak, you’ll freak for GLIM SPANKY’s album.. also called Music Freak out 12.4.2013 at CDJapan and Yesasia.
