Shishamo (Music Finds #50)

“Music Finds” is a 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!”

Look at that, we’re already at episode #50! Thank you for continuing to read my music tips!

This weeks find is the Japanese Girl-group SHISHAMO, a light hearted and upbeat musical appearance with the occasional feeling of influences like Plastic Tree.

SHISHAMO -「君とゲレンデ」

「量産型彼氏」

One of my favorites due to its melancholic sound; 「夏の恋人」

Let’s end on another favorite, which is a bit more upbeat. Also nice seeing them shooting an Olympus Pen F!

「中庭の少女たち」
