NIKASAYA (indie)

Nikasaya – Siroi Ohisama from the album; One Summerheim (mp3)

In the summer of 2009, Hiroshima based songwriter Nikaido Kazumi and Tokyo’s Saya (Tenniscoats) met at Guggenheim house, in Shioya. Overlooking the bay of Kansai, the pair set about recording a collection of songs that capture moments of utterly euphoric song, housed in a shimmer of incidental soundscapes. Album; One Summerheim melds free-pop structures with elegantly intertwined vocal harmonies.

Sakanaction – A Look Around

Sakanaction – A Look Around (Aruku Around = walk around)
# Lyrics: Yamaguchi Ichiro #Music: Yamaguchi Ichiro
http://www.quartet4.net/?p=7800

I’m walking on a listless day, I’ve waited for a new night

I’m walking by myself, the moon above is sadness
I’m walking by myself, I’ve become a lonely person
I’m walking by myself, I looked down at my cold palms
I’m walking, I’ve waited for a new night

On this road I’ve just found the night light grows brighter
What am I searching for? I still don’t know

So sad, so sad, we’re now walking in the swell
Forgetting my fatigue
In this land, in this land, I seek the meaning to end it
And start walking again

Those correct words of yours set me straight
I’ll waiver correctly with you and see if anything’s true

The voice I hear pulls me in and soon I forget completely
We’re fickle and become separated completely
On this road I’ve just found the night light grows brighter
Not knowing what I’m worried about or what’s missing

Drifting, drifting, we’re now swimming in the swell
Forgetting my fatigue
In this land, in this land, I seek the meaning to end it
And start walking again

We worry, trying to know an unknown place again
Forgetting my fatigue
In this land, in this land, I seek the meaning of it starting now
And start walking again
