Funnily enough, because it's posted on the gaming side, is that I found this band just because of a video game. Space Funeral, to be exact, which has a very unusual soundtrack.

It probably has been posted, but I find this Mixtape pretty great:

Starfunkel: A Mixtape From Japan

Pretty much every song is a hit in my ears.

And my absolute favorite is this song from that mixtape:

Yuiko Tsukobura - Tsukanoma yotogi bito

P-Model's In a Model Room is a classic album which transcends just being a cool piece of Japanese music. Really awesome.

Then my housemate suggested Sandii and the Sunsetz and they are fucking aaaamzzzzinggg I'm obsessed

I want more! I know there's at least a few people here who love this stuff. Give me some suggestions please!

edit: ugh wrong forum lmao

haha was gonna suggest Miki Matsubara but I see you got that covered. Stay With Me is one my favourite tunes from that era.

Flipper's Guitar is a quintessential Shibuya-kei band.
