Default Suggest good Asian-ish mewzik?



Okay, um, I listen to American music. That's it. Nothing from anywhere else. In general, that is.

Um, Japanese music and stuff. I only listen to AMVs, so..yeah.

But I've heard a bunch of neat Japanese/Asian music, and taken a liking to it about 10 seconds prior to typing the first letter of the thread title.

So..suggestions?

Personally, I'm a huge fan of L'arc~en~ciel. They're also fairly generic as far as J-pop/rock goes (leaning more towards rock, but it's pop-rock really).

If you want more poppy stuff, I'd suggest the classics faves, like Utada Hikaru (most famous for her work on the Kingdom hearts theme songs (Hikari/Simple and clean, Sanctuary/Passion) and Rebuild of Evangelion theme song (Beautiful world)), Ayumi Hamazaki and Megumi Hayashibara (Famous for well...doing voice acting and theme music for a crap ton of anime including Slayers (all of it, she's Lina Inverse), Evangelion (Original and rebuild, IIRC), Shaman king, and lots of other stuff. She's a woman of a thousand voices. For Male pop vocals, Takenori Nishikawa (TM revolution and Abignon Boy's school) is pretty good, and I'm kinda a fan of Soul'd Out (And thus M-Flo and Diggy Mo).

For J-rock/Visual Kei, I'd very much recommend Gackt (and by extention, Malice Mizer), Girugamesh and Gazette.

For Korean...eh...I'm not a big fan of Korean music but I do like some of BoA's stuff, as well as As One. BoA's also got some good Japanese stuff too.


If you want more exotic (as far as Japanese music anyway) I'd go for Asuca Hayashi (DAMN that girl can sing), Kokia, and my personal favorite, Akiko Shikata (I'm in love with this woman. She can sing and write gorgeous music).

...Speaking of which, I'm gonna go listen to some Ayu, brb.

If you're looking for pop music

Some Korean artists I listen to are 2PM, Super Junior, Epik High (very recommended for soulful hip-hop!), Big Bang, 2NE1, 4Minute, SHINee, SNSD, Lee Hyori, KARA, After School, BoA, and B2ST (basically the very mainstream ones)

If you're looking for J-rock...well I can't help you much with that, sorry.

Utada Hikaru for generic jPop. I've been listening to her music for years. Then again, that's the only Japanese music I listen to.

Have you tried to search in LastFM yet? It's a quite good way to find new music.

Why are you guys recommending pop to someone who listens to Amurrikan music?

If you want J-Rock, L'arc and The Pillows.

Not many kPop fans here?
From the top of my head, I'd like to drop in TVXQ and Wondergirls in addition to the artists on Ascherit's list.

And give HY a go for jPop; some of their songs are pretty sweet.

Because she never specified what genre she wanted, just that she wanted Asian music, and a huge majority of that is gonna end up being pop. Kinda like how if you ask someone for Korean music, you end up with a ton of hiphop.

American music has pop too. lol i dunno about you but i listen to a lot of diff genres of american music.

some of what ii'm about to say has been said but it doesn't hurt to have someone second your choice, right?

anyway my fav as far as foreign artists go:

Super Junior
(Bi) Rain
MBLAQ
Hwayobi
L'arc~en~Ciel
w-inds (lol xD)
Perfume
Faye Wong

obligatory Jay Chou plug goes here. i don't care for him but... my friend does. i like rap just not into his stuff

uh yeah those some of my fav but like others said there are a lot of diff types of artist you can check out. also if you tell us what kind of american music you like that helps too.

for example if you like RnB Rain is perfect. He's been my favorite singer many years now.

anyway if you're interested in exploring music outside of American maybe you can check out what other places have to offer too.

inb4 by asian he meant the indian sub continent.

R&B, pop, hip-hop, mellow stuff, etc. Pretty much anything. :P

Edit: I like that song that Virus posted very much. :3

Listening to a lot of Yuna Ito. So many artists to listen to.. @_@

Rain then. Hwayobi, Epic High, F(x)... I think you'd like Korean artist. I listen to mostly rap and hip hop too when it come to american stuff and that's the type that appeal to me. Some Japanese groups are pretty good and soulful too though none come to mind right at the moment. oh wait MINMI is a japanese singer who is good for that. try Minmi!
