Keeping it on topic - Japan

I did say that the blog would vary in content and not just be music. I thought I would tie in my post on Japan with some of my favourite music from the country. I am terrible at genres, but these bands sounds great to me - whatever they are!

Mono are a fantastic band. They're described as post-rock, influenced by shoegaze and classical/contemporary classical. Honestly, just instrumental rock covers it to me. They played at a 2008 All Tomorrow's Parties festival curated by Explosions in the Sky, which I almost attended. I didn't know the band at the time, and I'm regretting not going to that festival more and more.

Mass of the Fermenting Dregs are a shoegaze band with good, high energy sound :) I desperately want them to visit England.



  1. I don't know why everyone has to be so specific with genres these days. Does it really matter that much? If people like your music, who cares how you label it?

  2. I heard of the name Mono many times, but never got the chance to check them out. Their music is awesome! Mass of the Fermenting Dregs is a band that I never heard of, but they sound amazing! Loving the falsetto's vocals and guitars!

  3. I like music, so I'll be checking on ^.^b

  4. Haven't heard of them before but they are really good!

  5. Thanks for all the great music!

    Can´t wait to add them to my itunes :P
