A little while ago, I happened to stumble across this lovely all-girl jazz band  on youtube. Called ‘Tokyo Brass Style’, their soft jazz covers of famous anime songs are delightfully fluffy and fun to listen to! On the other hand, for some songs, I felt that their musical arrangement seemed to slip dangerously close to elevator-quality muzak, but that’s probably because of my unfamiliarity with jazz music in general.

Here’s their cover of Gurren Lagann’s Sorairo Days. As one commenter noted, the imagery of a “1970’s Gurren Lagann!!! Kamina and Simon with DEM SIDEBURNS!’ is extra awesome.

Music Monday

As we finally near the end of a tumultuous year, with the onset of a new, fresh start with 2011, it is a time for reflection and celebration. Some of us turn inward, looking back at all the good and bad things that have come to pass, but also looking forward with excitement and trepidation at the glorious future to come. Well, at the very least, I know that I am. So here’s some music that I felt was suitable enough to accompany and compliment such a contemplative mood.

“Even when trapped by karma’s cycle, the dreams we left behind will open the door! Even if the Universe? stands in our way, our seething blood will determine what will be! We will break through Time and Space! And defy all who would stop us to grab hold of our path!” – Nia, Yoko, Leeron, Viral and Simon

Peace out, everyone, and have a Happy New Year!

So I was going to be predictable. Then I was going to be more predictable.

Then I stopped being predictable and starting being awesome.

Thoughout my trawling of this site, Youtube and my harddisks this week to try and find something worthy of a post here, there were a lot of things I considered and cut out. So while I look to this quote from our esteem’d president: “Stealing this idea off of another blog, every Monday we’ll be posting up a music clip that caught our attention in the past week.”

So, while this might not have been in the past week, or indeed what I initially intended to post at all, take this shameless plug for an anime certain-people-that-you-don’t-know won’t stop talking about. Kick that reason to the curb and leave it shivering in fear. Then kick it again. Who needs it.

Dramatic text means dramatic show.
