Amazarashi ❤️ I may not understand a word while listening but love it, the texts are so powerful

 

One of the reasons for me to learn Japanese (hopefully again in the future) is understanding these songs😊

it's not in japanese but they are a japanese band. i met them a few years ago and they were all super sweet and friendly. their drummer seen my friend was having back pains, he ran downstairs, grabbed a big comfy chair, carried it up the stairs and just said "just in case"

I also listened to amazarasi's other songs and became to like them . I will follow the band from now on. Thank you, Quasar.w for telling me!

nutterwithasolderingiron, taffy is a fashionable and very kind. I'm Japanese and I'm taught Japanese music by people from overseas. It's amused and also strange feeling.

One of my favorite bands is a Japanese deathcore band called Nocturnal Bloodlust. I highly recommend you check them out if you're into metal; they're amazing!

Ldlelee, listening to NOCTURNAL BLOODLUST, my sleepy head woke up. I'm really about to awaken.

Black Tourmaline, I'm very enjoying the music on your site.

There's so much I like, and people here have shared lovely things already, which I'm really grateful for 😌 for me, it started with a classmate in lower secondary school who was from Japan who one day let me listen to what she was listening to, it being some vocaloid songs, so then I started listening to that and it lead to me learning Japanese casually for a while and then even living in Japan for almost a year ^^ now I mostly listen to utaite/vocaloid-"adjacent" music rather than actual vocaloid though I still do that a bit and have many favourite songs ^^ if I was to list some of my favourites with samples I guess something like this could do (very hard to choose just one each but I tried; I could also have listed a lot more just in general but well that would've been a lot so):

Spoiler

Mafumafu

Soraru

Harumaki Gohan

Yonezu Kenshi

Sou

InvaderT

Eve

Itou Kashitarou

(and to also have a vocaloid song in there, Jin with IA)

 

... just to name a few ^^

Oh boy, so much! Similar to Nazokashii, lots of vocaloid and utaites, along with a handful of J-pop and J-rock acts.

Mafumafu is probably my top favourite, his musical styles are very diverse and his lyrics are powerful. He also has an incredible vocal range.

One of my top vocaloid producers is R-906. I don’t really know what any of their songs are about but many of them give me nostalgic or uplifting vibes, although there are a few darker-sounding ones too. They have a very unique style that I’ve never heard before.


I also really like Ado, she’s just started gaining attention recently. She’s like eighteen years old but she’s already developed a distinct vocal style.


Okay I’m done rambling lol

I know right :D I love how he's now even done a duet with two different vocal versions of himself...

That was a super nice one, never heard of them before, so thanks for sharing ☺️

That's super cool that's she's so young! I think I've only heard others' covers of her songs before, but yes, I've started seeing them ^^ nice to actually listen to the original, so good ^^ Mafumafu's cover of that one was probably the first I heard, and that's super good too ^^ (yesterday, I also listened to Shima's recent cover, which was something else... definitely weird if nothing else, like, he did it using 50 different voices 😝) Thank you for linking the original, I'll definitely listen to more of her songs now ☺️

Yes that self-duet was so good! Lol I love his girl voice/alter ego/whatever Manun-chan is at this point 

😂

Heck yeah I finally got someone to like R-906 they deserve so much more attention! Soraru actually covered one of their songs in late 2019 which is how I found them.

Wow I had heard Mafu’s cover of Usseewa already but not Shima’s, that was ... an experience lmao. Thanks for sharing! Highly recommend Ado’s other songs as well, I’m excited to see where her career goes.

Quoting specific pieces of posts is difficult for me so sorry for responding to everything at once lol.

That's perfectly fine that you're responding to everything at once 💜 (I'll probably do the same now, haha)

I'll definitely keep my eyes open, I subscribed to her channel now ^^ Shima's cover is something of its own, haha yeah xD

I don't really understand how I had missed the Soraru cover of R-906's song, as I'm subscribed to him too since a long time ago... but thanks for making me aware of it ^^ and sure, I like discovering new music so thank you ☺️

Listening to my favourites playlist on shuffle, and this one popped up, while they've mostly moved on to human vocals, I really liked n-buna's vocaloid songs, like this one:
