SXSW2010 - Japan Nite
Chatmonchy are three girls from Japan who rock. Playing raw, energy-infused melodic rock music, Eriko (guitar and vocal), Akiko (bass), and Kumiko (drums) have been making a buzz all across Japan since their 2005 major label debut. Now, with their latest Oricon chart-topping album "Kokuhaku" (Confession), they're ready to infect North American fans with their catchy take on girl-rock power.

Omodaka - Kyoteizinc (video mix) mp3
OMODAKA is a solo project of Soicchi Terada, a composer, arranger, and remixer who has been musically active since 1989. Terada studied computer science at the University of Electro-Communications, and it was while still in college that he launched his music career. He is also the founder of FarEast Recording, the label which releases all of OMODAKA’s music. He has been producing a wide variety of electro/techno music collaborated with other artists (some of them visual artists, not musicians). OMODAKA’s sound is characterized by the seamless mixture of Minyo. "KOKIRIKO BUSHI" , the collaborative work with a veteran Japanese traditional folk singer, Kanazawa Akiko, got over 750,000 views at YouTube from 2007 and it will knock over your existing image toward a music video by a beautiful trajectory.
