Having just entered December, we are almost at the end of the year and this is the last Top 10 we’ll publish in 2021 (the next one will come at the beginning of next month as usual). So let’s take a look at November’s best MV’s!
10) 15GERM – フラウ (Frau)
November gave us many 15GERM MV’s, so let’s include at least one in this list. Despite being an electro-pop song (as expected from them), the ah-ah thing in “PARADISE” made my thing of the wooh-ooh stuff in Blur’s “Song 2”. Not that it matters, but I can’t really take this comparison out of my head.
9) プシュケとラーガ (Psyche And Raga) – Stray’s Banquet
Our favorite psychedelic rock idols Psyche And Raga are back with their new MV for “Stray’s Banquet”. Their everchanging line-up has been reduced to three members now, but their awesomeness is still there among guitar solos, organ melodies and a otherworldly atmosphere.
8) unknown – 何億光年先の星 (Nan’okukōnen-saki No Hoshi)
“Nan’okukōnen-saki No Hoshi” is a great song from unknown, with quiete eerie and slightly dark sounds on top of their intense rock music. It features a lot of interesting elements in both the intrumentals and the vocals, often in a choir-like style.
7) ASP – NO REASON
In case you needed some new digital hardcore stuff, ASP are here for you bringing “NO REASON” with them. Fast and distorted drum beats, a powerful bass, aggressive electric guitars, and of course the girls’ vocals: do you really need anything else?
6) BLACKNAZARENE – URGE
BLACKNAZARENE‘s rock sound is something I’ll always enjoy, despite not being my favorite idol genre. “URGE” is a nice song following their usual style, balancing the power of rock with some pop catchiness, and that’s exactly why I like it.
5) SARI – Paraiso
Another paradise-themed song? Of course, we can’t leave SARI out of this list. With “Paraiso”, this incredible artist gives us a very dreamy approach to pop music: a perfect sound for her unique artistic sense. That bass is awesome anyway, and it gets even better with everything else around it.
4) Malcolm Mask McLaren – Try&Try
While it’s true that punk idols are alwyas a lot of fun, Malcolm Mask McLaren are probably the ones who bring the most fun with their music. Combining a good amount of energy with some catchiness, “Try&Try” is a very enjoyable and well-done song, with interesting guitar riffs and bass lines.
3) Bon Club – 祭りの夜に (Matsuri No Yoru Ni)
Bon Club are one of the groups that you almost forget, until they come up with a new song or video which makes you think how did I forget about this? With an almost psychedelic atmosphere, “Matsuri No Yoru Ni” brings back the unique sound of this duo which deserved to be mentioned in this Top 10.
2) ぜんぶ君のせいだ。 (Zenbukiminoseida.) – SCAR SIGN
I’m always happy when Zenbukiminoseida. goes hard, and this time things got quite hard. The group dive right into an intense alternative metal sound with “SCAR SIGN”, featuring very fast drumming (that double kick is unstoppable) and dissonant guitars.
1) みんなのこどもちゃん (Minna No Kodomo-Chan) – 明滅する世界 (Meimetsu Suru Sekai)
There is no doubt about who made the weirdest MV last month: Minna No Kodomo-Chan totally deserved the first place. Bizarre doesn’t even begin to describe “Meimetsu Suru Sekai”, but let me just tell you that this may be the creepiest industrial metal song I’ve ever heard. And let’s not talk about the video, since it’s probably cursed or something.
