Really like Japanese post-rock. The usual - 3nd, Sequence Pulse, sgt., Toe, Euphoria, and Mono.

 

Especially a fan of 3nd's album View from here. Quirky, catchy, unpredictable - and the final 60 seconds to the song Clockworker is among my favorite endings. Shame the label took the sample songs off Youtube, so you'll have to take my word if you've not heard.

Downloading their album now. An if ur not already a mamber, what.cd is a great place to get music. Atlhough you need to get tested into it, if you don't understand appriorate musica transcode and tagging then they won't accept you. Still it's pretty easy, and they have like 4 3nd albums in Flac 

 

Just got thier View From Here album in under 6mins dwnload.

 

Very awesome stuff, a nice grungy sound but still very post rock! I like it!

a community about offering only the highest audio quality files. We don't take no crappy poorly transcoded music. Just a place for audiophiles to get music. The quality is ofc the top priority! We even have T-Shirts n hoodies <3

 

Still check it out if you guys are interested, as they have 3nd in lossless as well music from the previous bands those guys where in

 

In addition I'm really loving the ath w1000x for chillin out to! Terrible for gaming as they are to finicky on my head and distract the tar outa me. But the sound is amazing! 

 

Also [Not japanese but we need a post rock thread any ways]

 

We vs Death, a grand Dutch Post rock instrumental group!

I'm in both what.cd and jpopsuki, and honestly for cpop/jpop/kpop jpopsuki is better, also has good quality flac uploads.

I'm sure although I'm not a big follower of that region of music. I do how ever want a better anime site as well as a good place to get OSTS. I had to buy MH tri Ost CDs from Japan :/

This relatively new j-rock band called Hemenway has quickly become one of my more recent favorites:

...

 

 For example, there was a insert from Tokyo Love Story in the 7-8th episode, hard to believe people didn't notice that (I remember the dorama in particular was decently popular in Korea, especially for a dorama) 

 

...

 

Speaking of Love Story - 


@Lunatique - Just noticed from your location that you're from Fuzhou? That's my hometown as well. Cool to see another one here. Nvm, saw location change. Won't try and get too personal.


I lived in Fuzhou for a number of years, and then recently moved back to California a few months ago.

 

I'm a huge fan of Tokyo Love Story. It's still my favorite Japanese dorama to this day. That cover version while is an interesting take, really misses the point of the song altogether, lacking any of the emotional gravity of the original version.

 

The interesting thing about indie music (based on my observations), is that it's hard to predict in which countries the underground would really flourish and blossom. The political climate and economic progress seems to have little to do with it, since counties you assume would inspire a lot of underground music expressing their thoughts about their sociopolitical conditions, don't necessarily have a booming underground scene. Then in countries where things are relatively prosperous and calm, there's be a thriving underground scene. This is the kind of subject that you can devote an entire book to, and would require extensive research into the history and development of each country's music scene and how it correlates to the social and political development.

 

Oh, and I just have to post this brilliant song by Peggy Hsu (

許哲珮):

 

The lyrics are so incredibly well-written that it brought tears to my eyes. For those of you who don't read Chinese, the gist of the song is about the story of the aristocrats who fell on hard times as society moved forward and banished the old class system, and the aristocrats stubbornly held on to their arrogance and past glories and kept on believing that one day they'll be on top of the society ladder again, but it never happens. In the end, they go through life never learning the true meaning of being alive, and died lonely and forgotten, and the poor starving child who used to look into their windows and gawk at the feasts they have, pulls a blanket over the shadow of the dead aristocrats, thus ending their story.

 

And this is a great example of how mainstream pop seems so laughably shallow in comparison to the indie scene. I for one, am grateful that we can listen to mainstream pop songs in foreign languages and not have to think about the dumb lyrics and just enjoy the composition/arrangement/production value. But sadly, Asian pop songs like to put a few English phrases in here and there, thus reminding us of how idiotic the lyrics are.

 

I'm not one of those snobs who reject mainstream pop though--I've got just as much catchy pop tunes in my music collection as I do the other genres. Mainstream pop can be a lot of fun and put you in a happy mood, and as long as I ignore the lyrics, I can bounce along to it blissfully. And to be honest, I'm probably more likely to sit down and watch a sexy Kpop music video than three slobs jamming out dissonant crazy avant-garde post rock. :D
