Shishido Hinata wa sugoi desu!!

[Translation: Shishido Hinata is amazing!!]

Once again, I went myspace digging.  Curious after hearing that one of my favorite actresses was making music with M. Ward, I shuffled over to have a listen.  While poking around Mr Ward's top friends list, I came across Shishido Hinata.

It's probably not suprising that I clicked on him with my obvious fascination with Japan.  He reminds me a bit of Aqualung.  Refreshing and relaxing pop that doesn't give you that sugar overkill.  He would have been a perfect fit on the Lost In Translation soundtrack.  The second track on his myspace, translated as "Seed", is beautiful with touches of traditional Japanese melody in the vocals.

Is Myspace digging anything like the crate digging hip-hop DJs use to do?
