GG, the band Sumika is considered alternative.  Alternative is just a general label from music that is distinct from the mainstream.  Btw, a few tracks in and I’m digging the Sumika album.

Glad you like them 😊. If that's alternative then definitely try Mrs Green Apple. Party and Song of the Whale are the best tracks.

BOYBANDS

Winner - Baby Baby https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jBBy2p5EQhs sounds very American like an old barbershop quartet

Do you guys prefer listening with headphones?  What’s the appeal?  I don’t care for headphones since my hearing is shit.

I use headphones so that I can't hear others and they can't hear what I'm listening to. Headphones take up a lot less space than full speakers too, and they're probably cheaper (I've never bought speakers on their own before). I have a stereo system with big speakers that I haven't used in years because they'd be too loud for the rest of the house I currently live in.

While I'm posting, here's another Japanese band called Sigh. Wikipedia has them listed as black metal, avant-garde metal, symphonic metal and progressive metal. The vocals are in English.

I find a quality stereo system is best, but usually listen to music with good speakers and a great soundcard, which is adequate, and preferable to headphones.

I only listen with headphones for privacy. But you must use headphones for listening to Futurebass genre music, especially from your PC. These guys are wizards and the music accesses parts of your brain you never knew existed before.

Can't believe I haven't linked this one before.

It's completely epic and must be watched.

These guys have been around for over a decade and it shows. Great chemistry, awesome retro vibes. Catchy as hell. Boss outfits.

You know what I am not a fan of? Dudes wearing lipstick. If some Korean music videos are to be believed, this is a thing.

This is a fun video, a bit like an Alice in Wonderland set:

Hey Ho by Sekai No Owari Indie/alternative

Rain Love Song - Here's an old ballad from Korean Pop Star Rain

You and I by IU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eAmsTPSneJo this is the Japanese version, as the other videos have poor sound quality. Good upbeat pop ballad

FNCY - AOI夜(Prod. : G.RINA)  ZEN-LA-ROCK / G.RINA / 鎮座DOPENESS https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nKd-QTZjFF4 and Seventh Heaven electro funk/hip hop

No 1 by Tofubeats and G.Rina https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bQWxxdGsSSk and Disco Kamisama https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4TtiPT8mwJ0 more chilled beats

Tofubeats does Future House? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W4TtTzSxqv8 Top Track

This is She is Summer, I think the song is called Say. They are part of the Holy Trinity of Electro Pop groups - Oresama/Shiggy Jr/She is Summer
