Default Japanese indie

I'm into discovering Japanese bands, especially indie/alt-type stuff.

Anyone on here into that?

Some of my favourites are:

– Tokyo Jihen / Sheena Ringo
– Vola and the Oriental Machine
– The Novembers
– Polysics
– Sparta Locals

Gito Gito Hustler (Punk)
The's (early Rock n Roll)
Supercar (Alt-Rock early material, electronic later on)
Number Girl (Alt-Rock)
Tokyo Shoegazer
Plastic Girl in Closet (Shoegaze)
my dead girlfriend (Shoegaze)
つしまみれ (Alt-Rock)
きのこ帝国 (Shoegaze)
