This is one of my recent favorites from Jelly Roll, The lyrics and beat are so good.
Recently discovered The Tech Thieves thanks to CloudKid there sound is so good.
And here is a pretty fire song by Rival ft. Micah Martin.
A playlist for a jazz album I really liked recently (Trust in the lifeforce of the deep mystery by comet is coming):
Also a very recent post punk single from a band that released an incredible post punk album last year:
New Vampire Weekend album is out and I think it’s pretty spicy. This is my fav song on the album hands down
this is what i’m listening right now, i think i’ve shared it on new release a while back, still in my daily rotation
Just checked out some of the stuff MGK has released the past week and man it’s good.
And a few days ago he released a cover of a Billie Eilish’s song called Ocean Eyes.
Man, NF is literally one of the best rappers out there, Love his music.
Crypt & Vin Jay put out a banger recently.
and MGK Love this song and the overall sound of it i love when he does these rock styled songs.
Gladly I will - Japanese, end of explanation.
Haha no, for real.
Who are these guys? Why the fancy clothes? Why the makeup?
I’m not a metal fan but I quite like this. It’s weirdly compelling.
Usually, every sub genre in rock and metal music is tied to particular look and what not that was established by mainly the bands that managed to blow up the newly made sub genres.
I know it’s not the appropriate thread, but I will give few examples
Glam rock >
Metalcore (crap) >
Heavy Metal >
Black Metal >
Marilyn Manson (LOL) >
Trash Metal >
Hard Rock >
and many many more …
After all that you have Japan… Japanese something-whatever and they have their own “laws” for style and whatever they do as music like in every other aspect of their existence … Unexplained to the rest of the human world.
I see nothing particularly strange that require explanation. The main guy is dressed in traditional Japanese garb and plays metal. Most if any ‘weirdness’ I see is mostly western metal style and theatrics, the makeup, the headbanging the occasional tongue wiggling and such comes through mostly everywhere metal is played.
Though I guess it clashes a bit with the fancy Japanese clothes, but then so does the music anyway. They’re pretty good at it too.
I fully agree with Fraggles.
In addition to that…
There are two things I immediately think of when I see the bassit’s makeup:
- Kabuki theatre which is traditional Japanese theatre where they use similar makeup
- Corpse paint which is widely used by death and black metal bands
I think it’s ingenious that the bassist is wearing it, especially with his facial expressions. Can’t think of anything that combines metal and japan in a more elegant way
And thanks for sharing, it’s awesome!
Yes, I like this better by far. The Cranberries lead’s voice crawls under my skin after a while, talented as she is, dude I loves this!
