What else do we listen to?

    So, I've been meaning to start this discussion for a while (I don't think it has specifically been discussed here - I'm sorry if it has!). We need to get some new threads going to keep this place alive ^_^

    Anyway, besides Lee Jung Hyun - what else do you guys listen to?

    For me, my other favorites include Namie Amuro, FEMM, John Carpenter (also a favorite director of mine) and Aural Vampire. I also listen to a ton of 80s stuff, my favorites being Duran Duran, Bananarama and SSQ/Stacey Q. Other singers/idols I listen to are Babymetal, Koto, Up Up Girls Kakko Kari, Aira Mitsuki and Little Boots. Not much Western things for me - I have a hard time finding Western songs/artists that fit my taste.

    Thanks Scuz for trying to keep this site alive!! Yay! :x

    I like KyaryPamyuPamyu, BabyMetal and Perfume. I actually went to all their concerts this year. I would say Perfume's concert was my absolute favorite!

    I have Spotify and I found some really cool indie electro/pop/dance/synth or just chill music that I like a lot.
    My current obsession is Grimes. Anything from Art Angels or Visions! Maybe check her out?

    Also some random songs worth checking out.
    AlunaGeorge - Mean What I Mean
    Stalking Gia - Second Nature
    Kingdm - Baby
    Geowulf - Saltwater
    Astrid S - Hurts So Good
    Follin - Memories
    KLOE - Teenage Craze

    I like some of Kyary Pamyu Pamyu's songs. Especially Pon Pon Pon! As for Perfume, I really like their early stuff (Baby Cruising Love! <3) <br />
    I saw Babymetal in London a couple of years ago! We didn't have the best seats, but it was still a blast! ^_^ Wouldn't mind seeing them again.

    I'm currently listening to Art Angels by Grimes and I've already found a couple of songs that I really like. I'll definitely continue listening to her! It feels like she went in the direction Little Boots *should* have gone in after Hands.

    I find it difficult to recommend songs ^_^;; For Koto, I absolutely adore Platonic Planet! Aira Mitsuki released an album with Saori@Destiny a couple of years ago, which is also really good. It's called X Park of the Safari.

    Aside from that, I'd recommend Screaming In My Pillow, Big Electronic Beat and Tonight by SSQ, if you haven't listened to them already!

    Well it varies quite a lot:
    - 199x-201x eurodance/trance... songs, and I think it was and is still my main thing
    - older japanese/korean songs that I have found years ago (not that much new content, but maybe few every year)
    - older western rock/pop/reggae... songs

    I'm using mainly Spotify now and I've found some "new" songs/artists/bands from there, those varies by the genre but is more or less the same that I have liked earlier. I hope to see more asian (japan/korean) music on spotify.
