Well, I’ve decided to start featuring music on the site by Japanese bands that I feel deserve recognition for their talents. There is a lot of music that has achieved mainstream success over here in Japan but by artists that I frankly just don’t like, to put it bluntly I just don’t like their music. They maybe good singers but their style of music just doesn’t appeal to me whatsoever (my friends will obviously know what I’m going on about, I can’t stand rap, hip hop or r’n’b, and most Japanese pop is well… like any pop music, it’s shit!)
So I’m going to start with a band that I did not mention in my previous music posts. They are Base Ball Bear, and while I’ve been here in Japan they have slowly been growing on me. I will be posting some of their music throughout the week, so be sure to check back! First off we’ll begin with Girlfriend, enjoy!!
