And what I mean by that is, sometimes I log into Twitter and realize I have new followers. Some of those new followers happen to be bands. What some bands do is they’ll follow me and if I follow them back, they’ll unfollow me.
I ain’t into that. So if I FIND YOU, I’ll follow you. If YOU find ME, there is a chance that I might feature you on my website.
If we are mutual follows, coolies, nice to meet you, I like your music, I’m glad you appreciate and support my efforts to promote you, cuz I think you’re cool.
So just to clarify, these are bands that either follow me, or we are mutual follows.
Fuck YouTube, I ain’t even gonna try today.
First up is BFTS, aka Betray for the Scarlet. They are a metal screamo band. This is from their “Affection” mini album. It’s a trailer. There are three songs, “Against,” “Alteration,” and “Saying.”
Next up is Sounds Good. They followed me recently and I figured I’d give them a listen. I really like their sound and highly recommend that you check them out. This is their latest video, a lyric video of their single, “Carry On.” It also includes the tracks, “Ships” and “Island.”
Nano An Aperture released “hello hello” awhile back. It’s a happy go lucky song while the band mess around on the beach. This is from their second mini album, “roly poly.”
This is POT‘s latest single, “Don’t Be Shy” from their first album, “ARCO IRIS.” This is a great song, and the music video has a great message about self confidence.
Next up is the band el. el is an emo rock band formed by Norifumi and Sin, the guitarists back in 2011. This is a live performance of “Sora,” with lyrics by vocalist Haruna and composed by Sin.
There are a couple more, but I have to get ready for work. Don’t forget to check out Artema, The Winking Owl and Super Beaver! And don’t forget to follow me for more J-Indie Picks!
