This topic is just as the title says. This isn’t a thread about Japanese bands that only released one good album out of several. This is a thread about Japanese bands that only released one album (that happened to be amazing), and then were never heard from again. Drop some of the bands and their respective albums that come to mind for you!
For me, the band that immediately comes to mind is…
DIMLIM! …no I’m jk
Nah, but forreal, Eksperimentoj’s self-titled album from 2007 is what comes to mind for me. It was basically a sprawling album of moody and depressive post-rock. They sounded almost like a more straightforward version of downy, which makes sense since the vocalist was previously in the band Dhal with downy’s vocalist.
At any rate, really enjoyed this band’s sound, and it’s one that imo still stands out in the vast world of J-indie today. Would have loved to see what else this band would gone on to produce.
