Less Known Japanese Singers! (150)

1 Name: Rurutia 2005-09-27 21:42 ID:ctfg1t+q

This thread is for the discussion of Japanese bands and artists who are not as well known in the west as say, Ayumi Hamasaki, The Pillows, and Gackt.
That is, not to put Gackt and the Pillows in the same boat. . .

Anyway, what are your favorite artists from Japan that are less known? I know mine. She's actually my favorite artist of all time. "Rurutia" (「ルルチア」、 sometimes 「ルルテイア」) is great. The thing is, I have only heard one album from her. Her "R" album. I actually listen to it on repeat over and over for days. I have a certain order for the songs on it, and if they are not played in that order it just doesn't sound right. Do you know Rurutia, and if her other work is good?

Other than Rurutia I like Rie Fu. She sings in both English and Japanese, so being bilingual, it is very fun listening to her music.

I have only heard one song from "Mai Kurai", called "Secret of my Heart". It is my girlfriends favorite song. I like it, but I haven't heard anymore of Mai Kurai. Is she good?

I also like Yumi, though I have only heard "New World" from her.
Akino is another good artist (perhaps a band?)

Last but not least, I have a single from Kotoko (sort of famous, I think? I'm not sure) called "Re-sublimity." I love it!

Do you have any other Japanese artists that are good?

I think you mean "Mai Kuraki." She's rather famous, IMO.

And Rie Fu is really famous right now (or so I think.)

Akira Sudou; she's probably best known for doing some Bubblegum Crisis 2040 music years ago and released an album as As Sekiria. It looks like she's going to be releasing a new single soon. If it's prelude to releasing more stuff, I'll be happy.

I live in California and found a little known female group from Japan called, "YELLOW MACHINEGUN". No one here knows of them, which I think is great! They get some air play on Osaka's FM 802. The almbum titled, SPOT REMOVER, is definitely a must if you like the sound of angry women screaming over heavy guitar and drums. Typical 3-piece punk group.

There is a guy who lives in my apartment block who sings in the morning with his window open. He is not very good but better than most of the stuff on the radio.

He is not as nasal and whiney as most Japanese singers get when they try to sound white (forcing L sounds into words where they don't belong: Olly Wakalanai...)

He is a lesser know Japanese singers, as he is unknown.

Also, despite that most Japanese music is not very good, and those westerners who listen to it as a 'culture' thing are not very in the know, there are a few bands I could recommend.
-Mute Beat. Japanese dub. Very good and no vocals!
-The Fishmans - now defunct, singer passed away...
and
-Guitar Wolf, whose bassist, Billy Wolf, passed away last year, RIP.

Actually it's Mai Kuraki (倉木麻衣) - she's almost as well known as the other well-known female pop stars like Ai Otsuka and Nami Tamaki.

A band I think is absolutely hilarious is "Nice Guy Jin" who are a bunch of white guys with afro-style hair who rap in Japanese about the most mundane topics.

My boyfriend is into GISM i think but he likes punk music.

as everyone said Mai Kuraki IS a very well-known singer in Japan. But actually the Pillows are not so famous here. I don't know any Japanese people who listen to them (many say they don't even know who they are) and I think they may be better known to gaijin and to people living overseas.

I can't find a PV but it was the ending song to Ayakashi~(Japanese Classic Horror)~ . A traditional and very beautiful song. I recommend it!

She has a strange way of singing but I think it's cause it's a style that comes from a certain area of Japan.

73-75 Those aren't singers!

Stalin and GISM are good.

By Stalin, get STALINISM (collection of early singles), STOP JAP (first major album) and TRASH (first independent released album). Michiro Endo's solo career is good too - his newer albums (I My Me Amami) are acoustic Kan Mikami type stuff, but his older 80s albums are more diverse. A bit like Fishbone or Primus, sometimes quite new wave or goth / deathrocky (on 1985 Sex Odyssey and Hasan / Bankruptcy) and sometimes straight punk stuff (on the album Vietnam Legend). Michiro also reformed the Stalin as "STALIN" without the "the" during the late 80s / early 90s. Haven't heard much of but it seems like a continuation of his funky bass Primus type solo things.

By GISM, get Detestation. Military Affairs Neurotic is good too, but more metal. As in, metal type riffs and solos and things. Good though. The latest GISM album, SoniCRIME TheRapy, is worth getting too, but Sakevi/SKV's last album was a crap noise thing called The War (has a sample of King Crimson in it though, which is funny).
