Spitz reveal Live Music Video for “Samenai” & to provide the latest Mezamashi TV Theme Song

Well liked rock band Spitz have announced that they will be releasing a new Live DVD / Blu-ray next month on May 3rd.  Well ahead of its street date, the group have published a live music video for their song “Samenai”, the title track from the album the tour was meant to support.

In addition, it was also revealed this week that Spitz will be responsible for the new theme song for popular morning television program Mezamashi TV.  The track will be titled “Heavy Mellow” and has been described as a song which pairs positive emotions with their more typically introspective lyrics.  A preview of “Heavy Mellow” can be found here.

You’ll find the live PV for “Samenai”, an additional teaser, the DVD’s full track list, and an extended look at their new Mezamashi TV theme song below.

        “Samenai” was my top album from last year, so I’d be remiss not to have posted about this. xD That said, I also do rather like the sound of “Heavy Mellow”, since it seems like it’s adding just a bit of disco to the Spitz formula (they played with that a little before on “Endroll wa Hayasugiru”, but this seems like a more ‘mellow’ application :p).

          It was in my top 5. I’m not a huge fan of Spitz but I really like them, I have the feeling they’ve always been with me since I started listening to J-music many years ago. Also I particularly appreciate Masamune Kusano’s vocals. You surely noticed I’m more into female vocals but he is one of the few male voices I enjoy thoroughly.

      I knew it was written by @Ryusenkai! I still haven’t had the opportunity to listen to the ones you recommended, that “J-Pop website” is the only way I can listen to their discographies and, well, I can’t just download everything… Of course, there’s YouTube, but I only started really loving Utada Hikaru after listening to more than just her singles because the b-sides are the songs that demonstrate if they actually care about their music.
      Anyway! This is the first time I’m listening to them, and it’s even a live performance!, and they sound so good. If not for your recommendation, I probably wouldn’t have given them a chance for a long time, although just reading what you wrote, “their typically instrospective lyrics”, is enough.
      Thank you so much!

        It’s no problem! And I hate to add even more album recommendations to that list, but the last two Spitz records definitely belong there. As I already mentioned below, “Samenai” was my favorite album from last year (for a whole host of reasons), and the record before that, “Chiisana Ikimono” was my second favorite album of 2013. In retrospect, it could actually be my favorite from that year. Hard to say.

        What’s much easier to say is that their singer, Kusano Masamune, has one of my favorite vocal tones in all of J-music. And he sounds virtually the same whether performing live or on their CDs, so there’s always a consistent level of quality there.
