Namie Amuro is one of my favorite Japanese pop performers. As a song, “Golden Touch,” is representative of her musical output, but this video is a fun departure…
An awesome virtual-reality promotion featuring “Doraemon”; required reading about how marketers use your data; the CIA’s writing stylebook; an interview with the author whose work inspired Edge of Tomorrow; Game of Thrones-style state flags; and the music video for the new Sailor Moon theme song. ★
Spring and summer always seem to be the best time of year for dance tracks. (Or at least, it seems to be when I’m in the mood for them.) That’s why it was such a pleasant surprise to find After School’s latest Japanese album in the U.S. iTunes store recently.
Point of interest: If you are a fan of 1990s club music/or and J-pop, After School‘s Japanese tracks “Heaven” and “Shh” are produced by Shinichi Osawa (Mondo Grosso). You can see the video for “Heaven” and check out the other playlist tracks — which include dance tracks, plus a little bit of everything else — below. ★
