Females that sing with honesty and character, although not always perfectly. Points lost if it's in English, all other languages welcome.

Divas and idols need not apply, please.

Singer-songwriters are nice and all, but if I wanted to listen to Joni Mitchell I would listen to Joni Mitchell.


A favorite of mine for the past couple years. Very innocent, enjoyable music. Not always together. Stop-and-smell-the-roses tier.


Album to start with is probably Tan-Tan Therapy [MF: mnmam41tdyg]. I was introduced on Totemo Aimasho [MF: mhkdqkjhtzo] (that was me), and To Do First remains as one of my favorite tracks.

Noise punkers. They're so hard that by the conservation of hardness in the universe there won't be any hardness left for your COCK. Love 'em, or hate 'em. Regardless, Yasuko is WOOF WOOF WOOF WOOF WOOF.


Album to start is definitely Bambi's Dilemma [MF: 3fdyhnk50tk]. Favorite is probably Cell Scape [MF: ttqmmdm1zom].

Let's see. I can't say I know exactly what you're looking for with the Joni Mitchell and divaidoru bit, but if you're aiming for gentle agreeable music with female singers, then there's UA.

月がきえてゆく: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PnIxxNMKCB4

Just find out about her today on a band's blog even though she's been around for a while.

>Cracked Plaster Cast
The only parts that I don't really like are the parts that get really hectic with the percussion overload (around 0:34). The WOOFs are too harsh for me for the other one.

The songs played on that so far are very nice. Thanks for the find.

This is what it sounds like when you are cute as fuck even if you don't seem to be trying too much. Pop rock, relatively sparse guitar melodies used to good effect, and rolling bass accompaniment.


Best album to start with is probably Hi-Fi Anatomia [MU: SR52TFXJ]. Their other two are slightly more rock oriented, although still mostly mellow.


She has a pleasant voice, I'm seeing if I can find other tracks of hers that are more easy listening, similar to the one you have posted. Short searches have pulled up mostly R&B numbers, which aren't quite my thing. That mix was actually a great deal of my inspiration to make this thread, so I'm glad if you liked it.


Bambi's Dilemma has some similar tracks, but most of their other albums are alot noisier. Cell Scape is a bit spacey, so if you're finding them over bearing it may be more up your alley.
>> No.9234  
I'm not sure what R&B is since I don't pay very much attention or even try to learn about genres, but the album ATTA is pretty good in the easy listening department. I really enjoy the instruments for it.

From the track, I was going into this with high expectations. While it's enjoyable, the rest of the album did not quite snag me as much. It does have its moments, though. Last song is pretty good.

Three piece pop band, often with supporting musicians. You probably already know about them. If you don't, well great. Here's your chance. They're good.


They have a fairly large discography, and I have yet to find something I didn't like. I wouldn't say that there's a bad place to start. My favorite album may be Ten [MU: WIO74DVW]. The first tracks in that album are mono, there was a second disc with a stereo mix.

The Soutaiseiriron album needs a password and it's 'uploader.akibahmaniaco' without the 's.

Four piece band making a big sound playing some kind of hard punk [jazz] fusion. The singer habitually wears seifuku live, and is a character.

[Those video uploads are pretty bad quality.]

Their albums are fairly similar. I would start with one of their most recent, Aratamemashite Hajimemashite Midori Desu. [MF: yemy5tzz3u2]

Well, it's a good thing that I can subjectively enjoy objectively not so good material then.

Soothing music. Drifts between minimalistic pop and ambient with some glitch/IDM influences.


All of her work as Piana is fairly similar. I usually end up listening to Snow Bird [MF: wtwmjgybjyo], although I'm not sure if it is objectively her best.

P.S. One of my favorite songs is a track by World's End Girlfriend featuring her [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1r2iy8ZexdQ]. It used to keep me company on early drives before sunrise.

Steady songs with a good dose of folk, roots and a bit of melancholy. Completed with a touch of whim. It's not like the music is similar, but she probably listens to Slowdive. Just a hunch.


I accidentally stumbled across her while questing for other albums in this thread. I'm a fan. To my knowledge, she has one album, Grapes [MF: nymmtw4tnyw]. She's hard to search for.

Mass of the Fermenting Dregs

I mostly listen to them for the delicious guitar and bass tone, but Natsuko has a voice that fits in very well. Originally they were a three piece girl's band. Due to what I can only assume was DORAMA, they now have a stand in drummer. They still rock. Head bobbing music.


Only a couple albums worth of material has been produced. My favorite would probably be their first release, Kirametal [MF: y5jjlfunwyj]. Three tracks, about twelve minutes. It was later incorporated into their first album with some small changes.
               I did it again.

Nikaido Kazumi

While I would like to say that she has a very distinct voice, I hesitate because sometimes she doesn't sound like herself. Very flexible voice. Her material usually floats between folk, pop and jazz.


She's done alot, and I don't have exposure to most of it. Listen to Mata Otoshimashitayo [MF: dd3gzdgzmzn] first. No Album [MF: mnlmjd055nn] is worth picking up, as well. Pictured is her with Saya from Tenniscoats who she has worked with, which if I remember correctly is how I was introduced to her in the first place.

Very similar to Piana. There are definitely stylistic differences, but if you like one the other should suit you. Soothing music. It would probably be good for snuggling with your dakimakura.


She only has one album that I know of, Mirror Flake [MF: gonmmnzdjnm]. No large, intimidating discography to deal with.


Not only is it an album, it's also pretty good and in VBR to boot! (・∀・)人(・∀・)

I'll admit, the track linked to almost put me off, just for having that horrible 80's sound to the guitar. The rest of the album wasn't really like that, though. It won me over. As a note, it actually is the self-titled album.

(゚∀゚) Sensei sensei! What's VBR?
>> No.9516  

(″・ิ_・ิ)っ-̾  VBR is an abbreviation of "variable bitrate." This term indicates that varying amounts of memory were allotted to different portions of the song when the music file was created. The significance of this is that it maximizes sound quality, and minimizes file size. Different levels of encoding in VBR are designated with a "VΔ" label, where Δ is a positive integer or zero. V0 uses the highest average bitrate, and quality is lost as the value of Δ increases. While you may need to encode a song to 320 kbps to avoid quality loss in CBR (constant bitrate), the same song can often be encoded to an average of ~250 kbps or less in V0 and keep similar levels of acoustic integrity. Encoding in V2 will have no discernible audible difference compared to a lossless format when analyzed with a plebeian ear, and many people consider it to be optimum.

Another girl band with three members, but more by the books than fuck yeah. Most of what they do is admittedly similar to whatever's on the radio, played at a reasonable volume. There's definintely a bit of spring in their step, though, of the feel good pop rock variety.


They are almost a guilty pleasure for me, but Eriko's voice keeps it interesting enough that I don't feel too bad. At least not bad enough to keep me from driving around the open highway on sunny days playing the one album I have, Kokuhaku [MF: j2t3wxnoqty], very loud. She has just enough flaws to come off as emotive in what otherwise might be generic music.


\m/ Although, I have to wonder how much intentional irony there is.
Unrelated, and not that it matters a lot, I realized that I mixed up which CDs are mono and stereo in >>9303.

Ah, it's been a while. How are you? Today, I was looking through my files trying to clean up my folders a bit when I finally came across an album I downloaded a while back, but never found the time to listen to. I think I was surfing around YouTube looking for interesting references when I came across an image that I found most agreeable and Dorlis's music was what was playing in the background. If you're curious, the interesting image was a piece made by Megumi Sugizaki (http://bunbunmaru.com/wakaba/photos/src/1299551752.38372258.png).

A bit of text to hint at what you're getting into, I guess: Dorlis (born February 23, 1982) is the stage name for a Japanese musician from Okayama, Okayama Prefecture. She started out in classical guitar, but at about age 17 became a street musician and dropped out of high school. In time she became a jazz and swing musician. Her music has at times been deemed nostalgic because of its Swing Revival style. This makes her work somewhat analogous to American swing revivalists like The Brian Setzer Orchestra or Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, though stylistically it is more similar to 1920s and 1930s swing jazz such as Django Reinhardt's. She is primarily a jazz singer, though also is a guitarist.

Boris with Wata on the mic throughout. I'm not too hot on it, but most people seem to think it's the best of this year's releases. Definitely enjoyable, but not in the kick-you-in-the-face awesome way I was hoping. Find some time to sit, relax and chew on it.
