Updates, finally! [October 09, 2006 @ 4:52am]

taehyunjin
[ mood | sleepy ]

Sorry for letting this go completely dead for the past couple months, I know that I said I would try to update it sooner, but I wasn't able to get around to it.


Artist: 高橋瞳 (Takahashi Hitomi)
Title: コミュニケション (communication)
Language: Japanese
Download: Right Click Save As
Comment: I don't really know much about Takahashi because I just recently got into her while watching an episode of Music Station and seeing a comercial for this song, I knew I had to hear the rest. I think that the J-music world lacks decent J-rock female singers, but Takahashi's "Communication" is worth giving a try. This song is fast and catchy, did I mention addicting?


Artist: RAG FAIR
Title: 君のために僕が盾になろう (kimi no tameni boku ga date ni narou)
Language: Japanese
Download: Right Click Save As
Comment: RAG FAIR is another group I knew nothing about. I watched a clip of the ORICON top 20, and this was one of the songs featured on the countdown so I decided to check it out. To make this simple, if you like groups such as Gospellers, Chemistry, Skoop on Somebody, etc. You'll like RAG FAIR.


Artist: ASIAN2
Title: 遠く(tooku)
Language: Japanese
Download: Right Click Save As
Comment: Another random download. I have never heard of these guys before, but I am glad that I finally did. ASIAN2 reminds me a lot of ケツメイシ (Ketsumeishi) and ORANGE RANGE (both who I love). "Tooku" is a sort of upbeat ballad, but a very nice accompanied by great voices.


Artist: ASIAN2
Title: Lie
Language: Japanese
Download: Right Click Save As
Comment: This is the B-side to ASIAN2's "遠く" single. I actually like this song a lot more than "遠く", but thats my own personal opinion. This song basically proves that ASIAN2 is capable of different music styles. Where as "遠く" sounds like a typical R&B song, "Lie" has more of a rock beat to it.


Artist: BIG BANG
Title: We Belong Together
Language: Korean
Download: Right Click Save As
Comment: BIG BANG is popular Korean hip-hop and R&B lable YG ENTERTAINMENT's new male group. BIG BANG features members featured in previous YG collaborations such as G-Dragon and YB Tae Kwon. Despite their lame band name (IMO), BIG BANG is definetly worth giving a try, they remind me of an older version of 1TYM combined with SE7EN's Korean style.


Artist: AI
Title: I Wanna Know
Language: Japanese
Download: Right Click Save As
Comment: This was AI's latest single before the release of her new album "What's goin' on". I personally like AI because her style and voice differs from a lot of Japanese female artists. This song is definetly upbeat/hip-hop like.


Artist: BONNIE PINK
Title: A Perfect Sky
Language: Japanese
Download: Right Click Save As
Comment: This is one of those songs that you absolutly hate before you hear it about 50x and then it grows on you... Or at least that is how it was for me while I was in Japan... Typical j-girl pop music.


Artist: Dong Bang Shin Ki
Title: O
Language: Korean
Download: Right Click Save As
Comment: Popular Korean boyband Dong Bang Shin Ki finally released their latest album, which honestly isn't much of a head turner (or perhaps i'm losing intrest?) They changed their look, but their style is basically the same. If you liked "Rising Sun" or "Tri-Angle" then you'll like this song as well.


Artist: Kaoru Amane
Title: タイヨウノうた (taiyou no uta)
Language: Japanese
Download: Right Click Save As
Comment: It seems that Japanese female singers must be getting better these days... Oh, and another artist that I know absolutly nothing about, but she has a pretty voice. I guess if you like YUI, then you'd like Amane too.


Artist: Kat-Tun
Title: Real Face
Language: Japanese
Download: Right Click Save As
Comment: So this is my latest addiction. Actually 赤西仁 is... Anyway, this is probably one of the songs that really drove Kat-Tun to fame. It's fast beat, and extremely catchy.


Artist: TRAX
Title: RESOLUTION
Language: Japanese
Download: Right Click Save As
Comment: So TRAX keeps getting softer, and more poppy... Still addicting (damn it!) Though it doesn't really seem like Jay's Japanese is improving much. TRAX's latest Japanese single, check it out.


Artist: 絢香 (Ayaka)
Title: 三日月 (mikazuki)
Language: Japanese
Download: Right Click Save As
Comment: A friend of mine recently got me into Ayaka, and now I am addicted. Ayaka has a beautiful voice, and this song is a beautiful ballad, highly recommended.


Artist: 氷室京介 (Himuro Kyosuke)
Title: SWEET REVOLUTION
Language: Japanese
Download: Right Click Save As
Comment: This is Himuro's latest single release. He never disappoints me, this song is fast, addicting... Just simple amazing. I love how most of his songs still have this old-school rock feel to them.

[ mood | sleepy ]

After this current updated, nameless0star will be on HIATUS until around August 20th.
Why? I will be leaving for Japan 07.24 until 08.14 and won't have my music with me, therfore I won't be able to update.
So please be patient, I'll get this thing running again once I get back!



Artist: Milosh
Title: City
Language: English
Download: Right Click, Save As
Comment: So I have been on somewhat of an electronica high. A friend of mine gave me a copy of Milosh's CD recently. Honestly, I know nothing about Milosh... I can tell you that his music is beautiful and relaxing and his voice is amazing.


Artist: DRY & HEAVY
Title: DAWN IS BREAKING
Language: Japanese/English
Download: Right Click, Save As
Comment: Surprisingly, I was introduced to this group by my own brother. DRY & HEAVY is a reggae band based out of Japan. Majority of their songs are in English (including this one), they have kind of an old school feel, high recommended if you like reggae.


Artist: GLAY
Title: 誰かのために生きる(dareka no tame ni ikiru)
Language: Japanese
Download: Right Click, Save As
Comment: GLAY is finally back, releasing their latest single just recently featuring 4 awesome tracks (this being one of them). The 4 songs on the single all have a different feeling to them, this song in particular is a little more up-beat and happy.


Artist: SIA
Title: Breathe Me
Language: English
Download: Right Click, Save As
Comment: If any of you are familiar with the group ZERO7, then you might be familiar with SIA (see-yah) who does the female vocals on many of ZERO7's songs. This is a track from her solo album, a slow ballad, but beautiful.


Artist: TRAX
Title: Without You
Language: Korean
Download: Right Click, Save As
Comment: After a long awaited time for something new from the popular Korean gone Japanese rock band TRAX... They slap us with a pop-ballad. Though this song, being quite poppy and non earlier TRAX like, it is still a beautiful song and really shows off TYPHOON'S vocal talents. Yes, this is a song released after drummer ROSE had left.


Artist: OLIVIA inspi'REIRA (TRAPNEST)
Title: A Little Pain
Language: Japanese
Download: Right Click, Save As
Comment: I haven't watched anime in quite some time, but some how I managed to get hooked on the new NANA animation. The anime has both NANA or REIRA inspired songs that are performed by popular j-pop artists. This song is featured during the ending credits of the anime. The lyrics are beautiful, the song is beautiful, what else can I say?


Artist: ANNA inspi'NANA (BLACK STONES)
Title: Rose
Language: Japanese
Download: Right Click, Save As
Comment: Like the last song, this is also from the NANA anime, but the intro theme. More up-beat, rock-type.


Artist: Caroline
Title: Sunrise
Language: English
Download: Right Click, Save As
Comment: Contributing to my somewhat electronica addiction... This in fact is popular j-pop singer OLIVA's little sister. Don't expect Caroline's style to be similar to Olivia's, they are completely opposite. Caroline is still an indie artist, but her music is high recommended.


Artist: The Fray
Title: Over my Head (Cable Car)
Language: English
Download: Right Click, Save As
Comment: It's very rare that I listen to mainstream American music, yet I heard this song while listening to FM802 (Osaka radio) and for some reason it stood out and I couldn't get it out of me head.

Updates 2006.07.03 [July 03, 2006 @ 2:51am]

More updated to keep this thing going.
Comment if you download.

Artist: 5tion
Title: Eternity
Language: Korean
Download: Right Click Save As
Comment: 5tion, pronounced as ocean, was one of the more origional Korean boybands but were left in the shadows of more popular groups such as Shinhwa and so forth. I believe that 5tion was under-estimated, these boys are extremely talented and have beautiful voices, yet they did not get the fame that they deserved. 5tion eventually split and a couple of the members formed a new group titled After Rain. This particular song is probably one of my favorite songs that 5tion has released, definetly a pop ballad, but beautiful lyrics and beautiful voices.


Artist: 태빈 (Tae Bin)
Title: Don't Stop (feat. Perry)
Language: Korean
Download: Right Click Save As
Comment: Tae Bin, also known as Danny (1TYM's lead vocal next to Teddy) released his first solo album a couple years back. I personally couldn't really get into this album, but this is one of the better tracks. I guess if you consider yourself a fan of SE7EN's music, then you'll enjoy this.


Artist: 정인호 (Jung In Ho)
Title: 여름향기 (yuh reum hyan ki)
Language: Korean
Download: Right Click Save As
Comment: For any of you that have watched the popular Korean drama 여름향기 (Yuh Reum Hyan Ki) or Summer Scent, you should recognize this song. This song is quite interesting, definetly full of cute lyrics, kind of cheesy but extremely catchy in that way.


Artist: 宇多田ヒカル (Utada Hikaru)
Title: Wait & See
Language: Japanese
Download: Right Click Save As
Comment: This is one of Utada's older songs, dating back to I guess when she was more in the main stream, it seems as if she has somewhat drifted out of it for a while. This song is indeed one of her better up-beat songs.


Artist: 河村隆一 (Kawamura Ryuichi)
Title: Spoon
Language: Japanese
Download: Right Click Save As
Comment: I remember seeing the PV for this on Space Shower TV while in Japan for the first time in 2004, and I thought to myself that the video was complete crap and the song was catchy but so,so... Well, then I heard it everywhere! Music stores, restaurants... It eventually grew on me. Kawamura is the ex-vocalist of popular Japanese rock group Luna Sea, and now vocalist for new mellow-rock group TOURBILLON. This particular song is definetly more poppy than anything from Luna Sea or TOURBILLON, so don't expect any type of rock beats or anything.


Artist: 浜崎あゆみ (Hamasaki Ayumi)
Title: Real Me
Language: Japanese
Download: Right Click Save As
Comment: If you haven't seen this video, download it. It's quite strange yet I guess interesting. This isn't any recent Ayu, I have kind of stopped keeping track of her releases from a while back. This tends to be one of my more liked songs by her.

Welcome☆★ [June 28, 2006 @ 3:15pm]

[ mood | bored ]

Welcome to nameless0star, a mp3 & video rotation journal. If you haven't read the user info page yet, please do so.

This is the first batch of mp3's up for download, please comment if you download any of them.

Artist: スピッツ (Spitz)
Title: 優しくなりたいな (yasashiku naritai na)
Language: Japanese
Download: Right Click, Save As
Comment: I have been on a Spitz high recently. I noticed that a lot of Spitz songs tend to be more up-beat and poppy, "yasashiku naritai na" seems to be the opposite, it's quite slow paced consisting of mainly piano and vocals. Even if you aren't much of a ballad person, this song is lovely and very relaxing, also the lyrics are quite sweet.


Artist: Click-B
Title: To be Continued
Language: Korean
Download: Right Click, Save As
Comment: I believe that the current members of Click-B have joined with the members of J-Walk to create some other group, obviously I've lost track of them since three of the origional members first left. "To be Continued" is another mellow-type song, quite catchy and the video for this song is beautiful. If I get a chance in the future I'll try to get the video uploaded to here.


Artist: ミリヤ加藤 (Miliyah Katou)
Title: Love me, I love you
Language: Japanese
Download: Right Click, Save As
Comment: Katou debuted sometime last year if I remember correctly... I remember that she gained much popularity after her collaboration with M-Flo on their Beat Space Nine album. I guess Katou can be compaired to Crystal Kay musically, though I find Katou's music more appealing than Crystal Kay's.


Artist: TAKE
Title: Ring
Language: Korean
Download: Right Click, Save As
Comment: This song was released some years ago, it's the 5th track to TAKE's debut album. TAKE I guess is your typical Korean boyband, though I tend to think that their voices reach far above such groups as Shinhwa (not hating!), etc.


Artist: ハナレグミ (Hanaregumi)
Title: ちらら (chirara)
Language: Japanese
Download: Right Click, Save As
Comment: I don't think that many overseas listeners of Japanese music are familiar with Hanaregumi. He was quite popular in Japan in winter of 2004-2005. His style is quite mellow, yet his voice is very soothing. Give him a try!


Artist: コブクロ(Kobukuro)
Title: 六等星-NAMELESS STAR TRACK- (rokutousei)
Language: Japanese
Download: Right Click, Save As
Comment: I'm mainly uploading this song because it's where I got the name for this site from. Kobukuro's style is similar to Spitz, so if you like Spitz, you'll mostly likely enjoy Kobukuro.
