Have I lost it? (my mind)
Posted by: blooz

Okay I admit I have been under some stress lately (loss of a family member last month, estate stuff, the usual angst-causing life things) but I have really fallen for these four Japanese women. They call themselves Chai, and, believe it or not, are listed as punk in iTunes. Not sure joey Ramone would agree to that, but he probably didn't know any Japanese.
Getting used to the higher voices may be a challenge but they are really good musicians—fronted by a pair of twins (we're twins—same face, same face)— and the drummer and bass player are especially tight. they all have an incredible amount of energy especially the lead singer/keyboard player. They also have a thing about changing the Japanese concept of kawaii—cuteness— and they say everyone is kawaii.
So if you have a few minutes to kill, check them out, then tell me I should check myself into some sort of rehab facility.

The music sounds a lot like 80s alternative rock, I can't get past the voices though.

Well, they’re no 5.6.7.8’s, but they’re not bad.

That voice, though...



It is what it is.

It’s like Pikachu and a human female had offspring.

I caught a music festival on TV in Japan a couple of years ago. There was a young woman, maybe around 20 or so, who played acoustic guitar who sounded amazing. I took a picture of the screen and searched for anything she may had done, but alas I never found anything about her on the internet.
