Music Finds #11 – Some J to your Rock

Music Finds

“Music Finds” is a new series, with new posts here on the blog each Wednesday. The concept is as follows:
As I listen to a lot of music, I from time to time finds a piece that sticks out, sometimes because it’s quirky, mixed two very unlikely genres, unlikely instruments, or just damn right having an awesome sound. Expect any kind of genre to appear here. These songs is what I will be sharing with you in these posts called “Music Finds”
But really it’s mostly a segment about some of my most played songs of the past week.”

From my last reminiscence, I wrote about how I stooped looking into new Japanese music with the energy I once had. Not sure if that has really changed much, but I do stumble on more interesting Jrock-song now than I’ve done in a while!
Here’s one of those stumbled songs;
GRANRODEORose Hip-Bullet

It was my sister Izzey who told me about this group, the do apparently do a lot of anime-songs?
This song got tempo and a taste of aggression in the intro, with the typical switch to a smother sound during the beginning chorus that developed further with the bridge, and then a catchy chorus. The last notes of the chorus mixes with the intro riff, and we’re back to an altered version of the first verse. Looking at the structure, this is a fairly typical J-rock template being put to use – but they make it interesting!

#10 – Lynch. the devil
#9 – Oldies but Goldies
#8 – Gotta have that ‘oumpf’

#7 – “The Visualist from OZ”

#6 – A French Danse
#5 – Post-rock
#4 – Japanese Anti-Hero
#3 – Reggae meets metal
#2 – Korean Idols?
#1 – Steampunk Sing-along

  • Not sure you want to know my view on this. Well it seems to be a bit aggressive at times and kind of desperate in a loving way.

    This to me scream of sexual frustration. Yes… I guess I associate the penetrating bullet and death together as strong desire. The question why seems to be connecting the music, lyrics and the video. I like the video, of course I do it’s full of words. Yeah… kind of how I doodle actually minus the use of lipstick on walls. People get upset when I doodle on walls. Well, I did doodle on the walls of my teenage room, mostly quotes, it was an excellent way to get parents to finally buy some wallpaper.

    So is this a bad desire? No, I think it’s a powerful angry desire, because it wants in a way that is almost scary. But only almost. It’s screaming for intimacy more than angry. Calling out, just give in to me. But why me? Oh, take me up and away and I will colour you redder than a rose. I like that she eats the rose petals in the video. It’s very symbolic. Kinky if you like. Eat my rose…and I will turn rose coloured.

    I like the intro, it kicks this up immediately. Hot touchy desire then simmering down to intimate passion until intensifying and almost climaxing, but not really reaching that small death. A perfect melody for frustration.

    And frustration is often used as a narrative in anime series so that fits the bill.

    And if you think my mind is overimaginative there’s really only one known cure…
