are there any particular songs or tunes you listen to to feel comfy/or calm down? I find that the theme from Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence to be uniquely comfy.

Anyone still jamming to cassettes?

I recently bought a compilation tape from a Slovakian cassette label. Pic related. Some really good stuff on there, and it's all new music. (It's 'Spring 2019' from Z Tapes, by the way.)

Surprisingly, in certain music circles cassette trading is very common. I traded a few, got bored one day and decided to see how long the tape was and regretted the mess.


What kind of music circles? IRL or online?

Sure am sushi! Very comfy label by the way. I'm checking out random releases right now, is there anything specific you'd recommend?

I used to be big into black metal which, combined with a collecting spirit, led me to collect lots of demo tapes from the early 90s (thrill of the hunt, completing a discography or finally finding a tape which has never been uploaded online is pretty fun). Don't have a walkman anymore but I do have a tapedeck setup in the living room which is nice.

Used to trade with some guys from discogs, thought it was very fun to send out stuff you like and be surprised by what you received. Wish it was around more though and I've been thinking about hanging up flyers at my local college to see if people are interested in setting up a small circle.

My walkman broke I think, need to get a new one.

Got a KX-580 that I sometimes use to record things on.

I have a fuckload of tapes I got from some old people (mostly just trash from the 80s) who wanted to chuck them away, although you do get a few decent ones.

Listened to this Psychic TV album on repeat for quite a while, and when it goes into Paul & Linda it's also pretty pleasant.

I occasionally buy dance music on cassette but mostly just record my own mixes, which I find enjoyable.

Problem is I have a load of unlabeled tapes because the labels are only on the cases, and they all got mixed up at one point so if I want to listen to something it's basically pot luck what I get.


Nice collection sushi! I've listened to a bit of black metal but don't recognise the bands you've collected. You must have some rare stuff.

As for Z Tapes, the compilations (there's one for each season of the year) are great because you get loads of music. Apart from that, if there are still copies of orchid mantis' albums, those are well worth a listen.

Lads can you recommend me some metal bands? I've been getting into it and liking it, but I don't really know of any bands besides the absolutely most popular ones.

The best way to find out what you like best is to learn the history of metal. Listen to the original bands, then move on to the sub-genres that started to appear in the 80's and 80's. I'd highly recommend Black Sabbath as a place to start, seen as they created heavy metal.


Based on your image I'll give you this.


What bands do you already listen to?


I don't really like Metal but I like this one song

There's a lot of variation between the various genres of metal, in the same way that The Beatles and Frank Zappa can both be considered 'rock', yet sound nothing alike.

My advice is to find charts like these, containing some of the classics within genres and subgenres of metal. Maybe you've heard some of these before and want to find similar bands? Or maybe you want to simply find some good albums to get you started somewhere.

In any case, I have considerably less of these than I thought I did so maybe other sushi rolls can post some, or have a lurk through /mu/ if you're interested


I took this post as an excuse to practice my shitty japanese, but I'd still like to post a thread about screaming japanese lady-core here. Thank you.

>screaming japanese lady-core
I don't think that is an accurate categorization lol. Everything seems well in line with Ruins and other Zeuhl acts, maybe we should call this style Jzeuhl.

Fucking amazing stuff by the way, Midori, 385, discovering this shit just made my day. Thanks rolls :)
Here's Ruins, for comparison


Damn sushi rolls have good taste.

I'd say they all fall under the umbrella of jazz-punk/rock/pop, though I think the vocal styles of the Japanese bands her are distinctive enough to be worth identifying as a defining feature.

Here's some stuff that's a little more noise than jazz, but I hope it fits the thread conceptually:
大高丈宙: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qv2VzhuD4x0
Watshi no Koko: https://watashinokoko.bandcamp.com/album/--2


fits perfectly, thank you :)


Noise is ALWAYS welcome

Great music in this thread, absolutely love midori and wakusei abnormal is really great as well.

Since discovering midori years ago I've been on the lookout for bands/groups that are conceptually/thematically similar, so I'll post some of the gems I've come across.

Bleach is pretty cool, though aligns itself more with 385 than with midori (bit more static, if that makes sense… less jazzy?)

Similarly, Otori is less jazzy, though in this case also lacks the punk/metal department (still worth a listen though)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=93jWs4DqZL4 (serious epilepsy warning for this one)

Bokutacho no Iru Tokoro captures the fun and energy of midori while deviating from the chaotic arrangements. It's one of my personal favourites, though I can't find samples of their (imo) best material

Share your Vocaloid music.
Anything is ok.
Just because it sings, doesn't mean it must have lyrics.
And more poppy stuff and songs are alright too.

>Just don't advertise your homebrew AMVs.


Cool stuff sushi roll, I specially like koronba and nATALIE, though that Kikuo Rainbow stuff is pretty chill as well.

I'm not actively into vocaloid, so I'll just post some stuff which I came across over the years and found chill/cool/nice/whatever.

re;mo is nice, kinda shoegazy, kinda post-rocky, really lends itself to vocaloid imo.
https://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm19331563 (I'd recommend checking this album out)

Quadrophenia can be pretty comfy, though it's sparingly vocaloid

Always thought this one was a banger

Mine is Metronome Melody by Prism/Susumu Yokota. Lots of relaxing /tunes/ on this one.

It's actually pretty difficult for me to settle on one, so I decided to pick the ones that I like from different subgenres.

Infected Mushroom - Classical Mushroom
Aphex Twin - Drukqs
Pendulum - Immersion
Wave Racer - Flash Drive


Any reason you picked Immersion over Hold Your Colour? HYC holds up far better today imo. feels like it has a stronger drum and bass focus and less of the rock band and 2011s EDM stuff they moved towards.


Skating to grand central with voodoo people playing


You're quite right, HYC is more "quintessentially" Drum 'n Bass, But I have to say, I didn't mind the movement toward the rock/EDM style, and Immersion felt polished and cohesive in a way I find difficult to describe. I understand that among DnB enthusiasts this is a bit heretical. I tend to view different subgenres of DnB seperately, so for something like more traditional DnB I'd go with Formless, or LTJ Bukem's Journey Inward for artcore. if we're going harder than that, I'd end up settling on something from the neurofunk or techstep world, though I'm not sure what. Maybe something by Spor?

Doing the same, can't pick one so I'm dropping a few:

Floating Points - Elaenia
FM Skyline - Advanced Memory Suite
Röyksopp - Melody A.M.
Aphex Twin - Syro

Kazakh rapper Skriptonite formed a live band. Laid back beats and great vocals.
Lots of shakers.





I've been going back and finding some old J-Rock/Visual Kei bands that I've enjoyed.


>started out listening to liquid dnb mixes on youtube
>Enjoyed this for about a year until it got very boring
>Start listing to older dnb tracks by the likes of goldie, LTJ bukem and Adam F
>Love it
>Start listening to more artists
>check out jungle
>this is amazing
>check out a few breakcore albums
>its like jungle on crack and is great

Anybody got any breakcore albums to recommend to me?

Lastly, if you like breakcore, I highly encourage you to learn more about the amen break (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5SaFTm2bcac), and free jazz/Sun Ra: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j3Tk6Z6XbMs
For the sake of comparison, a Venetian Snares track called Pouncelciot (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-I2723x44uc) has some free jazz elements a few minutes into the song during the crescendo, about 2 minutes and 15 seconds in. It's chaotic, glitchy, dissonant, and abruptly tears apart preexisting notions about what constitutes music. It's a simultaneously visceral and cerebral experience.


I listed all that music and yet I somehow managed to forget Machine Girl. In any case, give Machine Girl a listen here: https://machinegirl.bandcamp.com/album/wlfgrl


> Run the Place Red by AFX
I meant jungle in Run the Place Red


Its interesting that lolicore as a genre has sort of died for a while now except for goreshit. It seems the only thing from lolicore that has been left behind is the anime and net culture inspired aesthetic.


if you like some gabber mixed in with your breaks


Do you like memphis rap?

ghostemane makes rap and black metal


anthony fantano lol





I figure there are at least a handful of city pop loving sushi rolls lurking, or people who would like it if they heard it. This is the album that introduced me to the genre, please enjoy ^^

Nice taste, some real bangers in there.

Gonna throw out a recommendation for Hitomi Tohyama, especially her debut album. Her music is peak comfy and her soulful voice radiates so much warmth and love.


posting my top 3 here, so excuse the spam (they're all from the same channel, but it's great for finding some underground city pop!)




thanks sushi, real nice stuff
