Telecastic Fake Show

凛として時雨 (Ling Tosite Sigure / Rin Toshite Shigure) - Telecastic Fake Show

Genre: Post-hardcore
Song style: Heavy guitars with wispy high-pitched female and male vocals.

This is one of those really impression-making songs that never gets old to me (it's been maybe 1 year now?) but I haven't managed to get fully into the band, even after listening to two of their albums ("#4" and "Inspiration is Dead"). If you like this song you may just like them though - it's a very similar sound. I have yet to hear their new album which holds this single (entitled "Just a Moment", came out 5/13/2009) and I look forward to checking it out. Their style is very unique and their sound somehow reminds me of Thursday mixed with The White Stripes. They do a good job of combining the female and male vocalists, and their similar-but-not-quite-the-same voices create an androgynous and surrealistic sound. Many people who like the heavier side of "Japanese Indies" (specifically, 9mm Parabellum Bullet) tend to also like this band.

EDIT (3/4/10): Their newest album "Just a Moment" is a MASTERPIECE. My opinion on this band has skyrocketed. Was a great song to reminisce while at the gym.
