first off, Mami Kawada is awesome! I discovered her in 2009 and enjoyed her 2 albums,
then last year she released a new one. I casually listened to it at first, but lately I've been revisiting it and it has really grown on me.
her style is very techno/rock~ish, and her voice is kinda high pitched so it's easy to clump her into stereotypical animu jpop style, but I do not care coz she is awesome and I enjoy her a lot.
track from her latest album and another one of my personal favorite songs:
next is Yu-A, who I already talked about. Her new album was released earlier this year and it's amazing. Not better than her first, but not worse either... it is just as good and that makes me happy.
all her singles are mostly slower ballad type songs, but she was part of a pop group and still manages to supply a very healthy dose of party dance style music, closing the album out with her collaboration tracks she does with other artists.
finally, I discovered my new favorite group sometime last year called Juliet. Typical pop/r&b style group, but I really do enjoy all of their songs a lot.
on the kpop side, I heard this one song by this group called House Rulez
I think I have found my new favorite artist. this song is straight up @_@
I have been able to track down their first 2 albums, I've only listened to the first one thus far.
it's OK, but I'm maad hype to give album 2 a listen as it's the one that this track is off of.
