General Eastern Asian Non-Metal Thread

I would like to introduce you the Progressive J-Rock band called WABi-SABi from France & Korea. These are friends of mine (the singer and the guitar player).

Here is their official facebook page :

Their first release, sounding like an AKB48 J-Pop song : WABi-SABi - 希望の始まり ~ New Hope

Their last release much darker than the first one : WABi-SABi - Remake the World!

They will soon start concerts in Asia, they need a lot of support, so please, help them to reach the top by sharing, liking, and commenting their materials Smile

Introducing Taiwan math-rock band Elephant Gym.
3-piece. Have some good tracks up on youtube.
Here's an article about them : http://=

and a couple of videos

and a live one :

Some smooth jazz-funk from South Korea.

It's the Free Groove Drum Academy with a track by John Blackwell "Mind of J"
(If I understand what's going on, there's 2 drummers, one of whom is part of the band and the other is a student of the academy ?
I may have that wrong though.)

Anyway it's a cool tune :
Introducing supposedly the very first female Thai hard rock / AOR band Mighty Queen (ไมตี้ควีน) from the 1980s. I cannot seem to find much of information about this band and its history other than a Facebook post listing the associated personnel.

However, their self-titled album, which was released under a Thai record label called Sound Scale, sounds quite nice.

Pretty interesting, I wonder how early in the 80s they were around.

I suspect that this will float some boats around here:

Elephant Gym, from Taiwan

Audiotree's description of them:
Quote:instrumental math/post rock trio with heavy jazz and classical influences. They write technical, agile tunes with irregular rhythms and off kilter song constructions

I did not expect to like this as much as I do.
That's actually a really cool band name. Perfect for the scene they're in.
If you can't get enough of me giving my opinions without having asked for it, you can read more of it on my Kevy Metal weblog.
That's not bad at all actually.
Occasionally, I write music reviews.
