Is there any good Japanese music out there instead of all the weeb shit?
Yes there are plenty. There are a lot of japanese people who make music not intended for anime viewers. And in a wide range of genres
check these guys out
seriously, I hear that "jazz vibe" in some u.s groups, but japan's the only country who nails it on a consistent basis. I mean wtf, is there nuclear runoff in their water? How is their pop music so based?
You might call J-gaze weeb shit, but the Japanese make some of the best shoegaze around. There is a cover album of loveless by J-gaze bands called "Yellow Loveless"
Clams, Pasteboard, Tokyo Shoegazer, Oeil
All great J-Gaze bands.
Who the fuck cares if something comes from Japan specifically? Especially since their shit is so derivative.
Off the top of my head that isn't derivative
Koenjihyakkei -- Angherr Shisspa
Actual Japanese folk and classical music ie. Hamakawa Bros, Oyama Mitsugu, Takahashi Chikuzan
In after comfy animu--sounding Mass of Fermenting Dregs
Some quality anime music here. 1st track is a cute female voice whisper rapping on a cool beat and then sings. 2nd is kind of a cute circus type of song. The show is about magical lesbians and the songs kind of give off that vibe. Very kawaii stuff.
