Bon Iver:

Wisconsin pride! (Where's nomadicmadda when you need her?) Bon Iver was in Seoul last year performing but I missed the chance to see him. Big 실수 on my part resulting in much 후회~ :cry:

Neutral Milk Hotel on repeat for the last week.

Airplane album is boss - always a joy to come back to.

Anyone dig Brand New? First album in 8 years. Totally worth the wait.

Otherwise, I've been spinning:

Ben Gibbard's new solo stuff
New alt j (and old alt j, and older alt j, alt j for life, srsly)
Latest CYHSY (The Tourist, rad album)
MISSIO (mainly at gym)
Latest Cold War Kids (mainly when I'm cleaning my apartment. It helps somehow)

Biggest disappointment(s) of 2017:

AF and MO. You know who you are :rolleyes:

I'll probably go down as total dork and only person on waygook listening to Jrock.
XJapan (really disgusted I didn't discover them in high school)
L'Arc-en-Ciel
One OK Rock (I like them but they're a little strange with their American girl fetishes)
But mostly I feel like the music composition, drumming, and guitaring of XJapan is amazeballs.

Having lived in Japan, all of those are on my playlists. XJapan especially: I really love their instrumentals! Siam Shade, also a Japanese rock band, has similarly awesome instrumentals.

I made a nice little playlist of shoegazing/dream pop bands such as: Mazzy Sat, My Bloody Valentine, early Verve, Slowdive, Cocteau Twins, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Lush and Galaxie 500

Awesome! I'll check them out. If you have any other Jrock suggestions, I'll take them. I tried Gackt, the sound is okay but not exactly my thing.

Literally right now, bluegrass covers. I love bluegrass, so I really enjoy listening to covers. The song on right now is an Offspring cover.

Following the JRock topic, I used to listen to a lot that my friend got me into back in high school. I dropped some of the ones she gave me, but I still listen to some of them, like those that travelingpantsgirl mentioned. When I went to Japan the last time, I holed up in a music store for a little while and just checked out a bunch of bands.

Halo, I've fallen into the rabbit hole of visualkei. Even though it's popularity is fading I absolutely love it. Honestly, if I can see XJapan at Tokyo Dome once, I'll have finally crossed an item off my bucket list.

Yeah, I have seen a few. I'm from Seattle area, so Japanese bands come from time to time because of our Asian population (and proximity to Vancouver's Asian pop) and I probably because we're the closest starting off point, haha. My friend and I went to go see a fair amount of visualkei bands, but never xJapan.

Not quite J-rock, but anything by Nobuo Uematsu is gonna be great for listening etc.

Mike Shinoda has some solo work (Fort Minor), and while he's American, he's also Japanese-American, and it definitely shines through. Leans more towards hip-hop though.

"Bump of Chicken" is pretty cool. The band name is actually Banpu Obu Chikin, meaning "counter-attack from the weak man", but... yeah. Bump of Chicken. :laugh:

Shonen Knife is also pretty neat: kind of a punk/alternative/pop/garage band sound.

If you like "The Rainbow" then you'll probably also like "Gley" which was also originally a visual kei band.  :smiley:

Jealous! I don't have many band names so if you want to send some my way, I'd really appreciate it.  ;D
