Started listening to new Japanese music using last.fm; for the longest time, the only people I’ve listened to have been Perfume and MEG, but then John wrote about The Pillows on Tofugu, and then I saw a post about how to listen to Japanese music online (last.fm being a suggestion), so I put the two together and it turned out to be pretty good :D I quite like The Pillows now, but here’s a different artist:

Cheesy as hell, but it’s still pretty funky and catchy :D Surprised to hear the guy is 100% Japanese because he totally looks half-Caucasian haha.
@AstralFox: Hm, that’s odd; I don’t even have a Vimeo account and I can play it fine :D I would have posted a YouTube link, but there wasn’t one ;_;
Also, not a fan of Cowboy Bebop (as in, I’ve only watched maybe 3 episodes), but I love that song; would be pretty awesome hearing it played live. So energetic and invigorating :D
