New & Noteworthy J-pop of the Week (February 25, 2024)


New and Noteworthy J-popIn reference to my need to totally sustain with the J-pop trade, I’m planning on doing a weekly round-up of any new releases which have caught my ear. A few of these could have been coated on the weblog already, however my hope is that this may turn into a one-stop store for anybody considering what’s new in J-pop.

With that in thoughts, right here’s the place you are available: I’m one particular person with one set of musical preferences, so please embed some other new J-pop tracks you’ve loved within the feedback so we will get a fuller spectrum every week.

*And similar to I do with my evaluations, I’ll wait till full variations of songs can be found earlier than posting them on this round-up. It will largely apply to Johnny’s teams, who nonetheless restrict the vast majority of their YouTube uploads to shorter, edited variations.

Ado – Worth

The refrain is stable however the remaining is slightly boring.

Atarashii Gakko! – Howdy

Typically this group feels slightly too jokey/gimmicky for me.

Ballistik Boyz – In My Head

Sigh. It’s been awhile since I’ve loved a Ballistik Boyz music…

Charisma.com – Shut Up

I really like once they go extra melodic. What a wierd music video, although!

Da Pump – Use Your Physique

I actually like the large, brassy vitality. I want Issa’s voice didn’t annoy me a lot, although…

Genic – N_G (music(s) of the week!)

This isn’t a music. It’s eight of them, put right into a video medley previewing their new album. Even so, it’s my straightforward decide of the week as a result of I feel this group is extremely gifted and a lot enjoyable.
I’ve already pre-ordered all three variations of the album… what did you count on?

Hiromitsu Kitayama – Guess

That is extra in keeping with how I feared his solo music may sound. It’s good, however sort of middle-of-the-road and could possibly be nearly anyone.

Hockrockb – Butterfly

I do know nothing about this band, however I just like the old-school sound and video.

Kazuki Hayashi – Tokyo

Easy R&B from the Doberman Infinity vocalist.

LisA – Howdy World

Easy rock. Meh.

Ryokuoushoku Shakai – Get together!!

This group is admittedly on a roll. This isn’t considered one of my favorites from them, however they’re of their imperial part.

Sakurazaka46 – Nando Love Music no Kashi wo Yomikaeshita Darou

I don’t know… not one of the songs on Sakrauzaka46’s new single have hit me. It’s all stable however unspectacular — particularly given their observe file.

Shiritsu Ebisu Chugaku – Twinkle Wink

That is catchy, cutesy woman group pop. Not unhealthy, even when among the vocals are fairly tough.

Tremendous Beaver – Setsubo

I haven’t actually gotten the hype round this band. This is without doubt one of the most on the spot songs I’ve heard from them, although.

Takanori Iwata – MVP

He’s been releasing loads of music these days. That is tied to a Pepsi commercial, although it doesn’t sound prefer it. It’s dumb enjoyable.

Vaundy – Time Paradox

I’d file this amongst Vaundy’s extra boring songs.

Tokyo Efficiency Doll – Junai Chaos (2016)

Tokyo Efficiency Doll have a ton of nice songs (each of their 90’s iteration and the reboot), however this one bangs particularly arduous. I really like when pop music has life-or-death depth. Junai Chaos‘s rave-meets-rock sound is *huge*.
