Ringo Shiina/Ringö Shéna/Rinngo Sheena (椎名林檎)

Yumiko Shiina (椎名裕美子) was born on November 25, 1978, the Year of the Horse, and is a native of Fukuoka. She debuted in 1998 with release of the single “Koufukuron”. Thereafter, she sung her own songs, wrote songs for others, and sang the songs of others. Following a freewheeling solo career, in 2004 she began performing as a member of the band Tokyo Incidents. With the encouragement of her comrades, she continues to playfully explore musical horizons. The solo work she occasionally reveals remains as vital as ever.

Tokyo Jihen/Tokyo Incidents/Incidents Tokyo (東京事変)

Tokyo Incidents was ushered into existence through Ringo Shiina's Sugoroku Ecstasy Tour in 2003. The five musicians who played together on the tour officially began performing as Tokyo Incidents the following year. They debuted in 2004 with the single "Gunjou Biyori".  After a lineup change in 2005, the new incarnation of the band set about wreaking havoc once again in 2006. Their sophmore album "ADULT" debuted #1 on oricon weekly.  2010's "SPORTS" & 2011's "Dai-hakken" also topped the oricon weekly. They officially disbanded February 29th 2012.

Any previews for Sora ga Natteiru yet? Title does suggest it might most likely be a slow alternative song along the line of Ariamaru tomi lols

I've recently discovered her through her debut album.
I like her debut album a lot. Don't really know yet what to think of "Kalk Samen Kuri no Hana", I think it's a very original album though.

Really love Meisai, Marunouchi Sadistic and Koko de Kiss Shite.

Her debut album might be my favourite! Kalk Samen Kuri no Hana is definitely more refined in terms of production and songwriting, but it's not nearly as catchy or easy to listen to, in my opinion. There are some great songs on there.

From her debut, Koko de Kiss Shite, Kabukichou no Jouou, Koufukuron, Marunouchi Sadistic, Tsumuki Asobi, Kouhaku and Morphine are my favourites < 3.

My favourite Shiina album is definitely Shouso Strippu, probably because it was my first Shiina album. When I first got it I listened to it non-stop. I remember I didn't really like KSKH but loved her debut album. KDKH is a grower though, I love it now. I really recommend Shouso Strippu! Get that one if you can.

The new TJ songs are beautiful!

Little bit of info on the covered song. 夜明けのうた (Yoake no Uta; Song of Daybreak) was first sung by Kyu Sakamoto for a TV dorama he starred in back in 1963. Youko Kishi's version in 1964 became a big hit.

Kyu Sakamoto's 1963 original

Youko Kishi's 1964 version

Two songs off the new single are great.
Sora ga Natteiru is an awesome rocker.

Which one of their albums would you guys recommend to start with?
