Polysics - Rocket

The North American takeover of Japanese electro-pop darlings Polysics hasn't quite happened like I thought I would, which is really too bad. A lot of people are still missing out on this quirky and infectious band, but maybe they're just too quirky for even the most adventurous listeners stateside. The good thing is that they just keep on truckin', putting out a new release of some sort every couple of months over in Japan. This is their latest single "Rocket", which was released back in November. The disc comes with a karaoke version of this song and the b-side, but unless you can speak Japanese, you'll probably end up embarrassing yourself! Then again, that's what karaoke is all about.

I bought a friend of mine a ticket to a Say Anything/Hellogoodbye concert in November and went with him and The Polysics were one of the openers. I'm a pretty big Say Anything fan, but The Polysics were by far the most awesome performance of the night. I'd heard some of their stuff before, but both hearing and seeing them live was a hell of an experience. I've never seen a band with so much enthusiasm before in my life.

Agreed... what an amazing live band. I hope they come up to Canada again sometime soon.

Another good recommendation! You guys are pretty amazing. Because I'm so busy and don't have time to trudge through pitchfork and bunch of other sites that supposedly deliver on good music, I only go to this blog, and I am never disappointed. I have discovered a lot of music through you guys, and I just wanted to say, keep up the good work! :)

Sweet! I haven't been able to find this track, so 'cheers'. I do usually buy their stuff on import but money's too tight to mention.

One of the best live bands around. Love 'em.
