“Goose House” is a Japanese band that began as a musical cooperative of singer songwriters.  It’s a spin-off of Sony’s PR project for the “Play You.” walkman (gosh, do you even remember those?)- where artists and musicians applied to live in the same house and work together, releasing their content via internet.  

 

“Goose House” actually gained their momentum through youtube covers- familiar territory for big name artist in North America (cough- Justin Bieber).  They mainly cover Japanese pop songs, but there are a few sweet oldies in their playlist too.  

 

Like the Candies, for instance. 

For some God-forsaken reason, SONY hasn’t released the original Candies’ “Toshishita No Otokono Ko” (A Boy Who’s Younger Than Me) on the internet, but you can find many beautiful renditions on Recochoku. Either that, or I’m too stupid to find the original recording. That may be… But Goose House really got people’s attention through this amazing cover of the Radwimps  song “おしゃかしゃま”(Oshakashama) that you can watch and listen below:

They’ve released a much anticipated new single “光るなら”(Hikarunara- If You’re Going to Shine) on November 19th. If you’re in Japan, you’ve probably seen their TV ads a bunch of times. Here it is:

You can watch a live acoustic version too:

KILLER. If you’re an indie bopper like me, you should support these DIY artists. Too many plastic looking lip syncs dominate the J-Pop industry. In solidarity with true art! Available on iTunes Japan store and iTunes Japan gift cards available through JapanCodeSupply.

iTunes Gift Cards can only be used for the iTunes Store for the country in which the card was purchased. This means that an iTunes Gift Card purchased in Japan can only be redeemed in the Japanese iTunes Store.

From a strictly legal perspective, Apple’s Terms and Conditions limit you to only using the iTunes Store in the country you’re in. However, as of June 2012, Japan snuck in some strict copyright laws. The internet was sniped of almost all Japanese media and entertainment, as the attorney at law Toshimitsu Dan put the following changes in place:

1. Ripping and copying of copy-protected and encoded materials like DVDs and games is no longer considered “for personal use” and is punishable.

2. The sale of software and hardware that circumvents copy protection and access protections is forbidden.

3. The intentional download of illegally uploaded materials is now punishable.

 

What options does an Otaku outside of Japan have? You can purchase a Japan iTunes gift card here. You can purchase a gift card and will receive the code by email in seconds (FAST and CHEAP!).
