    Default 日本音楽部 [Japanese Music Club]

    日本音楽部へよこそう!!
    (Welcome to the Japanese Music Club!)

    I've noticed there are several members of SPPf who like to listen to J-Rock, J-Pop, etc, but there was no club for them to congregate in. Hopefully now everyone who listens to Japanese music day and night like me will have a place to call home! Want to know how everyone feels about the new AKB48 release? Want some recommendations to help you expand your library? Want to learn what the heck Aristocratic Visual-Kei is? This is the place for you! Also, feel free to discuss some Korean and Chinese music here. Just keep in mind that the club is centered around Japanese music.

    RULES
    01. All regular forum and club rules apply. ~
    02. No spamming!
    03. No three word posts.
    04. Please don't ask about becoming a leader/club mod.
    - If I see someone active and knowledgeable I'll probably appoint them to some higher position! But until then everyone is on member status.
    05. Don't be annoying or stupid.
    06. Break one rule = one strike.
    07. THREE STRIKES = BAN

    I'll join this club if I could! The name's Sweet May and I've been into a mix of music from Japanese groups for a couple years. Some of my favorite artists/groups are Perfume, Mami Kawada, Nana Kitade, L'Arc~en~Ciel, Berryz Koubou, Rie fu, supercell, Kalafina, BoA, Crystal Kay, and Utada Hikaru. Honorary non-Jap mentions to Big Bang, Brown Eyed Girls, Jolin Tsai and Shinee. =P

    But as for my top, top favorite, I can't decide between Mami Kawada or Rie fu, heehee. Waiting on the former's new single though! Not a fan of the anime the single's song is used in so I'm waiting for the release to actually listen to serment.

    I've heard of Perfume (Cho-ko-le-i-to Di-su-ko! ~), Mami Kawada (I LOVE I've Sound bands! PSI-missing is my fav from her btw), Crystal Kay. I'm also a huge fan of BoA, in both her Korean and Japanese works! The Face, Identity, and Girls on Top are probably my favorite albums from her. c: I haven't really heard of the other bands, but I'll def check out Rie fu and the others.

    I'm a fan of music of all languages. From English, German, to Japanese! \
    I only have stuff from The Gazette, Ali Project, and some Vocaloid songs. I know its not much, but this club will get me open into more music!

    Even if I don't listen to the music of the artist, a lot of musicians/artists/bands from Japan (and Asia) have very good style, and look very nice. I really adore the style and image of the two bands I know and love. (Yeah, I know the image doesn't make the music :P )

    Anyways, I'm here. Hello. How are you?

    I would like to join this club. Got introduced to the music through anime and have become a pretty huge fan since then. Some of my favourites include Masaki Endoh, Granrodeo, Flow, Kra and Nico Touches the Walls.

    I think you may like exist†trace and Yousei Teikoku. Check em out and tell me if you like. c:

    I'm learning about so many bands I've never heard of before. o': Anyway, welcome to the club!

    Also, to everyone: Anyone know of any J- or K- bands touring the United States this Spring/Summer? The last time I've had the chance to see someone like that was Shonen Knife in '08. I wish more bands toured around this country. :< (Not to be American selfish, any announced European tours from anyone either?)

    ^I like the sound of them!
    Both bands you menchined have good music, seem to have solid lyrics, and as a bonus have really good looking members :3

    Another one I forgot to menchin was Gacket. I listened to his stuff, and he has everything I just menchined above me <3

    I like Ali Project for the fact that I can have their music going whenever I want peace with myself. I know it doesn't sound "cheerful", but I'm with peace with myself when listening to a lot of their softer songs. The language is very soothing and lovely and its easy to get relaxed with.

    To be honest, I haven't heard much outside the songs from the Ouendan series, but listening to the original versions of all of the songs from those games and that got me interested in Japanese music. Especially Morning Musume. The first time I heard Koi No Dance Site, I was hooked by the catchy, haunting melody. It made me want to get up and punch to the song. Eventually I listened to another one of their songs, As For One Day. And that song was another winner for me. It had a similar haunting feel to it that I liked about Koi No Dance Site, and I listen to both songs a lot. ...I haven't heard anything by them other than those two songs though. I'm not sure how this group can help me know more about Japanese music, as my knowledge of it is very small. But is it alright if I join incase I ever feel the urge to learn and discuss about Japanese music?

    I know what you're saying. It's really the same for me listening to Mell and Kotoko. Their songs are so soothing. ~ They help me to relax a lot of times.

    Also speaking of Ali Project... Have you heard their new single released a few days ago? I was so excited when I heard about it. Kyomu Densen.

    Welcome and glad to have you! c=

    Koi no Dance Site is pretty good. Morning Musume always has something interesting going on I think. If you haven't heard of it yet, check out Shabondama by them. That's their first song I heard by MM (and the first single from a Japanese band lol), and it's still one of my faves.

    Meow, Gimme Gimme was awesome.

    Olivia's voice was a little annoying for me, though :/

    ^ Glad you like Gimme Gimme. Yeah, Mademoiselle is awesome. ;D

    I'm curie what you think about the band 'else. I bought their CD pretty cheaply on amazon jp a while ago and oh my gosh they're amazing I think. They were active in the 90's and I'm unsure if they ever became popular. Angel Talk - 'else

    Meow, that was actually pretty good

    Although, I have to admit, I'm a little more into electro/dancepop than rock-type music. (i.e. Koda Kumi or, uh, Roisin Murphy (she's Irish, actually, but w/e))

    Would the Vocaloid songs count as stuff from Japan? If so I got some great things I could bring up :3

    Nyan ~

    The Birthday Massacre and Crystal Castles are my two top favorite North American bands EVER (both happen to be Canadian). I have a feeling you may like both. c: Japanese wise, definitely definitely check out the I've Sound scene. I think you'd like every one of the bands in that production group.

    Sure go ahead. c:

    I actually own Miku but I'm still not that great at producing full on songs. It makes me appreciate how hard people work on some of the Vocaloid hits.

    Meow, I have recently been listening to Ayu's stuff, and I'm really liking M and Mirrorcle World.
    Why do I like the most depressing songs the most? @___@

    Allright, I'm doing the new banner for the thread, but for small signature support banners. Should I use something like a sprite from K-On or Vocaloid? I want it to be really small, and sprites are pretty small :>

    I've always been a fan of depressing works as well, so I know where you're coming from lol.

    Wanted to point out this to you - Precious - Miu Sakamoto. It's really not depressing at all but I think you may like it!

    Signature support banners would be awesomeee. I would say anything Touhou or Vocaloid-related would be great. I think Houkago Teatime and Girls Dead Monster would work good as well.

    Well I just need some sprites! For what I want to do, sprites work best.
    I know their are some of Miku out there, but none with any insturments. I would love to have a sprite with insturments on it. It doesn't even need to be a character.

    I agree with Atari, some Girls DeaD Monster would be great. For reference.

    Hey, that was pretty good! And on the depressing crap note, my previous music fixation was with Goldfrapp, and some of my favorites of them were the saddest. (liek Lovely Head and Utopia) And Bjork before that, and she was never really happy. :/

    Um...ya, genkide ya tsu teru? I'm DTX, as you can see, and I was informed by the kind Atari that there was a thread for those who favor Japanese music over American. Personally, I just think that we have horrid music, save Skillet and Crush 40. I enjoy listening to Japanese a lot, and my favorite bands are UVERworld, Vocaloid, and Back-On, plus a couple other ones. I hope that I enjoy myself here

    ^Well I don't think singling out the whole entire country's music as crap besides a few artist's is really good to say. There are loads of good and bad artists with every country!

    Granted, I think I know where your coming from as I prefer music with a foreign flavor such as German, Swedish, or Japanese for example, but I'm going to listen to bands that don't seem to have a genre appeal in only their country (example - the industrial German metal genre is obviously German, just like J-Pop is Japanese)

    By the way, with a few exceptions with Vocaloid, I don't like J-Pop. A lot of it, for me at least feels a bit annoying. There is a lot of dark, gothic sounding stuff that sounds amazing such as Ali Project and ExitTrace
