Hey! It’s a Friday in Japan and that means it’s time for the weekend! Finally! And the weekend means it’s also time for the second edition of Top 3 Videos – Weekend Edition for May 29, 2015. Can you believe that it’s almost June? The year is almost half over!

I’d like to say thanks to all the bands and labels that have started reaching out to us. With your help, we are able to make this countdown twice a week so keep the videos coming!

First off today is a band I just discovered about 30 minutes ago. If you loved the seventies punk band, X-Ray Specs, then you are going to love this band! They are called the Downtown Boys. Punk News Org says this:

“Downtown Boys are a political punk band from Providence, Rhode Island, who shake things up in a variety of ways. They sing in English and Spanish, switching between languages with such seamless ease that even when listeners don’t understand the words, they still get the point.”

#3) Downtown Boys – Slumlord Sal https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V6vQHtICr8w

Next up is a girl’s band from Washington D.C. and they formed in 2013. This band is Mary, Betsy and Laura and they are called Ex Hex and they are fab! (Regular readers and listeners know that I always like bands with female vocals!)  This reminds me of early Go-Gos or the Bangles (when they were called, “The Bangs” and didn’t become shitty commercialism).

#2) Ex Hex – Waterfall https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2AxIA4042WA

Next up is a band that is definitely going places! They are called The Mirror Trap and they are not newcomers to our chart. The Mirror Trap is an alternative indie rock band from Dundee, Scotland. The band have released two albums to date and they have supported fellow Dundee band The View and toured Russia with Placebo in the summer of 2014.

#1) The Mirror Trap – Silent Men  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MXmAaSBY8dM

Finally, this week’s freebie! And it’s a Japanese band that were guests on our program a few weeks ago.  Their name is Sawagi and they are from Kansai. Sawagi are a rock-dance music quartet band that incorporates jazz and funk.

オマケ:Sawagi – Fuss Uppers  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lmh5nrU0Xi4

Well, that’s it for this week! See you next time. Keep rocking and have a great weekend!
