The Japanese music industry is actually the largest in the world, even moreso than US and Europe--so big that they don't even have to worry about pandering to us by worrying about oversea sales, so except for occasional world tours from popular arists, musicians there tend to stay focused in Asia.
Speaking of the Japanese music industry...guess who the biggest selling international artist is over there?
Okay so, this is one of my favorite songs EVER. It's a really nostalgic ride for me to the point of it almost being spiritual so it won't be quite as amazing to everyone else probably but it's still fucking awesome.
It's by my favorite composer, Yoko Kanno; @Hawthorne @Chanaynay she also did the music for ZnT and Cowboy Bebop, please listen to this and fall in love with the bassline like I did
"Yeah, there wasn't a lot to do back on the old farm. Just sit back, think about things, and then repress those thoughts immediately..."
