Tuesday’s Song: Libra, by Mucc


Today’s song cross the pond once again, this time to the island nation of Japan and a band called Mucc. Wikipedia says Mucc (ムック, mukku) is a Japanese rock band formed in 1997. Named after a character from the Japanese children’s TV show Ponkickies, the band is also known by the name 69 since "sixnine" can be pronounced "muku" in Japanese.

The song, Libra, features a solid drum track, “classic rock” vocals, with somewhat of a “music box” thread running through the verses. It is, of course, sung in Japanese. I’m especially impressed with the incorporation of “triplets” in a few of the verses.
