VA for Tsutaya Nov 2013: Ruki's Favorite Music

Happy Halloween, everyone!

This is Ruki's column from this month's VA magazine.

While I'm not a huge fan of everything he likes, it's actually quite fun going through his list and checking out the music he recommends and listens to.

My reaction is usually, "Huuuuuhhh??" but a very amusing type of "Huuuuuhhh??" nonetheless.

How do you feel after listening to his recommendations?

Let us know in the comments below!

Ruki's Favorite Music

the GazettE

This wasn't a bought advertisement (laugh). I was doing this exactly when this album was starting, so I was listening to it a lot anyways. As I thought, since it's our own songs, I listen to it with a lot of personal emotions, but I really feel that I genuinely like the parts that I replay. I think that this time around, there's also a lot of variations with the sounds, so doesn't that mean a lot of different people can listen to it too?

Sigur Ros

I'd listen to this now and then from way back, but during the tour, I listened to it pretty often before I went to sleep. Even if it wasn't Sigur Ros, I think I would've bought it since I like the CD jacket. Of course.

Daft Punk
『Random Access Memories』

This definitely goes without saying, but as usual, there's a nice feeling in the sound selection. Personally, I feel like I get to feel a different side of Daft Punk each time, but what do you all think? I'd like you to also get that kind of a style from our album--of us progressing, whether it's one or two steps forward. I listened to this a lot during tour when going to bed and waking up.

Nine Inch Nails
『Hesitation Marks』

NIN always has a huge impact with all of their releases, but this time was really incredible. They created something that makes you unable to resist screaming from the noise in your head. I wonder what kind of equipment they used...well, moving on from that, this is one album I'm really glad I came across.

The Blood of Heroes
『The Blood of Heroes』

I only found out about this people recently, but I bought it because I thought the jacket was interesting. And it was worth it! This is the feeling we've been going for lately, and this album really nailed it. I don't know what genre this is, but my first impression was that it was a little crazier than Prodigy. I recommend this for those who like noisy beats!

Yes, Ruki, I'm sure that wasn't self promotion there...haha!

At any rate, I actually also garnered some interest in The Blood of Heroes, which is apparently a super band (made of people I don't actually know...).

What do you guys think? Who would you listen to more from this list? Let us know in the comments below!

For me it's a pretty... well.... strange(?) taste in music... not bad... but not good either xD

I think I would listen more to Sigur Ros^^
