Does anyone happen to know much about good Japanese rock/indieish music?
Theres wayyyyy too much out there on j-pop which is quite universally awful. But from what little I've heard there is definitely some good Japanese music.

There's a load of good J-rock. Here are some songs I like:

Shiina Ringo - 本能
Karasu - 夢
Mongol 800 - 小さな恋のうた
Gackt - Another World
Shiina Ringo - ここでキスして
Onmyouza - 甲賀忍法帳
Bump of Chicken - 天体観測
Gackt - Redemption

Hi Tyr,

do you like the links proposed by lichtraus, or are you looking for something a bit more violent?

(I really liked Shiina Ringo-本能 somehow!)

Orange Range - Asterisk
My personal J-Rock favourite - even if it already has almost 8 years.

+ some kind of "poppy Prodigy-like like rock" or "rocky Prodigy-like pop", respectively.

I would highly recommend 犬神サーカス団 (Inugami Circus Dan). They are a fabulous hard rock band that one of
my Japanese friends got me hooked on.
