1. Gesu no Kiwami Otome
    Noisy pop that veers between piano rock and jazz.
  2. Suiyoubi no Campanella
    Quirky electronic project with some brilliant videos highlighting traditional shopping alleys, abandoned buildings, the city of Sapporo, and bath houses in a video game quest.
  3. Sakanaction
    Alt rock with a heavy dance bent. One of the bigger j-rock bands at the moment although technically indie.
  4. Perfume
    Catchy electropop with stunning visuals. You may remember their creative director from OK Go's "I Won't Let You Down".
  5. Aimyong
    New indie singer-songwriter with very nostalgic j-rock tunes.
  6. LLLL
    Lush and slightly cacophonic electronica from the netlabel scene.
