Jan 29th – Nana Mizuki – Smashing Anthems

Recommended by Matt

I really, really enjoyed this album. It’s absolutely bursting with energy. It’s J-Pop that skirts closer to the Lady Gaga end of pop and not the Sakura Gakuin end of things. Songs like The New Star wouldn’t be out of place in an English club. While songs like Clutch!! may be a little twee, it’s at a level that debatable rather than hyper-teen-idol levels that can put people off.

This is a genuinely good album that a lot of people will overlook, but you should definitely try it out, don’t dismiss it just because it’s in a different language.
