    Now I'm showing you Indonesian indie artists:

    Efek Rumah Kaca - Di Udara

    Indie rock band from Jakarta. They often make social critic songs. This song is a tribute to Muni Said Thalib, a human right activist who was assassinated.

    The Trees and The Wild - Empati Tamako

    A band from Bekasi, they originally an indie folk band but later they adopted post-rock & ambient element as the 2 guitarists use a lot of delays in their pedalboards. They feature both male & female vocalists

    Homogenic - Utopia

    Electronic band from Bandung consisting of a female vocalist, female back-vocalist & synth player, & male synth player. The band's original vocalist, Risa Sarasvati left the band to pursue solo career.

    Sarasvati - Story of Peter

    Former vocalist of Homogenic, as solo singer, she choose art pop as her genre, with gloomy & haunting feeling. Beside having good voice, she has ability to see & interact with ghosts, making her often appear on TV shows about haunted places but she dislikes to be called as a paranormal. This song is about Peter whom she claims to be a ghost of a young Dutch boy died in Bandung during colonial era whom she befriends.

    Bottlesmoker - Boredom & Freedom

    Indietronica duo from Bandung. They've traveled around the world. Though ther genre isn't EDM (though sound similar), they've been invited to perform on DWP, an EDM festival.

    Now I'm showing you Indonesian idol groups other than JKT48. Success of JKT48 in Indonesia affects other agencies to make Japanese style girl groups aka idol groups to compete with JKT48:

    1. Lumina Scarlet - Scarlet Melody

    Actually they're oldest idol group in Indonesia, founded in mid 2011 as a cover group by a group of highschool girls who are fond of Jpop (JKT48 were founded in late 2011). In 2014 they began releasing their own song.

    2. Supermoeland - Summer Melody.

    A reply to JKT48, interesting fact, they're from a small town in Bengkulu, a province in island of Sumatra. Too bad the project is discontinued now.

    3. Twenty Nine Girls - Aku Berharap

    An idol group from Jakarta. I'm sorry, I know only little about them but their songs are catchy.

    4. Shojo Complex - Yume no Kakera

    An idol group founded by Kawaiian TV with Yoshimoto Indonesia (I heard it's branch of Yoshimoto Kogyo). They recruit former JKT48 member Diasta as one of 1st gen member. Their songs are composed by Kato Hiroaki, Japanese artist based in Depok, neighboring town of Jakarta. They have cafe where they regularly perform every weekend in AEON Mall BSD. To gain popularity, they're pushed by AFA, last year they performed in all of AFA in Singapore, Thailand, & Indonesia.

    5. Sakur4 - Justice Knight

    Subunit of Shojo Complex but in fact, they released a single earlier before the main group. The song is original soundtrack of Satria Heroes, movie of Bima Satria Garuda.

    Well. These groups have original songs. It's actually sign that JKT48 should release original songs.

    Egao - Ikimonogakari
    Theme song for Pokémon the Movie: Genesect and the Legend Awakened

    笑顔 / いきものがかり cover by Goosehouse:

    Some of the lyrics that I particularly like:

    Itsudatte mannaka ni aru yo / It's always right in the middle
    Taisetsu na mono wa koko ni aru / the precious thing right here
    Tsutsumu youna kimi no sono te ga yasashii / You hold my hand gently, as if you're embracing it
    Tsuyoku nigirikaesu yo / I squeeze yours back firmly

    Itsuka chotto kanashii koto mo aru / There will be slightly unhappy times and
    Itsuka chotto ureshii koto mo aru / Slightly happy ones
    Demo zenbu warae tara ii / But we just need to laugh everything off
    Zenbu kakae ikite yuke tara ii / And keep them with us as we continue living
    Subete ga mata kawatte shimattemo / Even if everything changes again
    Nando demo hana wo sakase you / Let's make the flowers bloom, over and over again
    Shiawase ni nareru you ni / So that we can live happily
    Kimi to tomo ni aruiteikeru you ni / and continue walking together

    Warai nagara naku youna hibi wo / There'll be days when we laugh as we cry
    Naki nagara warau youna hibi wo / or days we cry as we laugh
    Sou yatte ikiteyukou dakara / Let's continue living that way, that is why
    boku wa tsuyoku naritai / I want to be stronger

    Advent Sorrow - The Wraith In Silence

    A song that caught me by surprise last week. Excellent symphonic black metal with a great atmosphere.
    The climax at the end is truly mesmerizing.
