Daily Over-Dose: OK Go

So, I don't like OK Go. I can't quite figure out what it is about the band that irks me. It's not that they make particularly bad music, there's just something about their esthetic that just bugs me. Well, they've just relea...

A Daily Dose of Music: Chatmonchy

A Daily Dose of Music: 9mm Parabellum Bullet

The Yokohama hard rockers 9mm Parabellum Bullet are back with a nasty new cut. The always forward sounding alt-rock band from Japan has a new single with Seimei no Waltz, and it's a blistering number.

A Daily Dose of Music: Old School Thursdays

Man, I've been trying to get my hands on this classic for quite a while. Back in 1994, Japanese rock pioneers X Japan was planning to make a full length anime film to put the icing on an enormously successful music career. T...
