ex Negoto by NEGOTO [Album Review] | J-Music Exchange/Rate

I guess this quarantine has helped me revive some old blog segments lol Waaaaaay back in 2018, fellow blogger/Japanese music fan Leap250 and I started a collaboration where we both gave each other an album from our respective libraries to listen to and review in a blog post.

Creating Apple Music ‘Essentials’ Playlists for Some J-Artists

As I’ve mentioned in the past, my preferred music streaming platform is Apple Music.

Retiring the “Slice of Alfredo” Name…

Hello, it’s been a while. After a long period of time of being busy and not having much motivation to write, I think now is a good opportunity for me to (slowly) get back into the gist of things. I still love writing about random stuff and interacting with all you lovely people, and I ...
