Porno Graffitti is such a wonderful band. I like the fact that they're not as heavy as other rock bands, but always keeping that "something" that just cheers you up anytime. Their music is very catchy and melodic. You could say that they're on the same line as Mr.Children, but their music is much more upbeat. Out of this album, which is a compilation of some of their greatests hits, picking favorites is HARD. But Possible. So my favorites (and highly recommended) songs are Apollo, MELISSA and Hitori no Yoru  specially. That song introduced me to their music. :)
If you haven't already, give these guys a chance. It's worth it!

Cheers for my first Jpop upload! xD
Miwako is an amazing singer. I love her voice. Her songs are generally on the sad mood, being most of them ballads. But they're still very enjoyable. I don't look around the Jpop media exchange enough to be completely sure but, I don't see her stuff uploaded very often. I hope I'm not right, because she deserves attention. Out of this album, my favorite song is "Ame to Yume no Ato ni". =)


*Schwarz Stein was a Japanese electronic band, formed by Hora and Kaya in 2001 as "Rudolf Steiner", and disbanded in 2004.
Schwarz Stein was a solely electronic-based duo, creating a variety of decadent and broodingly dark (at times) songs during their three years of activity.*

o1. Current
o2. Syphilis & Disorder
o3. Current (Instrumental)
o4. Syphilis & Disorder (Instrumental)

Something REALLY different from the other two uploads, huh? Schwarz Stein... I love those guys. Their disbandment is such a shame (though... it brought us Kaya's solo stuff... which is amazing as well). 
I can't find many words to describe their sound. You'll have to do with "synthesizer", "makeup" and "Japanese". Yep, that pretty much sums it up. Kaya has a really, REALLY deep voice. And he generally uses words like "atashi" (which is femenine). That solely makes them entertaininng enough for me. xD But, taking the jokes apart, their music is good. Not a lot of different sounds, as they are in the Electronic genre, but the arrangements are quite enjoyable, and very catchy. ;)



[Artist] Shulla
[Video] Samuzora PV 

Eh, Shulla. I'm not gonna lie, I know nothing about them. I got this PV by mistake, and got addicted to it (but I've been too lazy/busy to look for more xD). I really like the song, and I praise this band for being so creative, despite the low budget! (I say this because I've noticed lots of indie PVs where the band just stands there with heavy makeup, and flamboyant costumes, singing... and do nothing else). And the fact that they're all pretty doesn't hurt either. ;D

That's it for now. May you enjoy the music! <3

And might take Miwako, too. Thinkin' about it ;D
