It's interesting, but a lot of the reason that seems to be happening (at least in my observation) in the instrumental is because there's way more melody (or at least micro-melodies) in the vocals. A lot of these dudes are kinda making single-line phrasings into hooks and then riding that hook (or 2-3) throughout the song. In these shorter 2-minute songs they also seem to eschew choruses a lot more often, but for almost like the opposite reason of lyrics-focused underground of previous decades. It's all hook, instead of no hook, even if it's all in the vocals and not the instrumental.

Band-Maid performing 'about Us' during last week's Online Okyu-ji. They wrote the song specifically to be debuted at the Nippon Budokan show that had been scheduled for the same day but which was, of course, canceled and replaced by the online show. It's one of their gentler songs. The online show, which was fantastic, is getting a limited blu-ray release in May.

'Rebel Riot: The punk soundtrack to Myanmar's anti-coup protests

Inspired by protesters in Hong Kong and Thailand, Myanmar's youth aim to grab the world's attention as they fight to remove the generals.

"It's not an easy thing as a woman here in Myanmar," said Hnin. "You have a lot of restrictions and you are not supposed to [be a singer in a punk band]."

The tattooed 23-year-old features in "One Day", a new film clip by Myanmar's foremost punk band Rebel Riot, delivering seething vocals over the top of a barrage of heavy guitars.

In the background, mohawked and leather-jacketed punks wave red and black flags and raise three fingers, a symbol of resistance derived from popular film series, The Hunger Games, and adopted by Myanmar's anti-coup protesters.

[...] the collective are known not only for their music but for street-level social initiatives, such as handing out food to Yangon's homeless.

Hnin says that being a part of Rebel Riot allows her to share her voice, which she says goes against the grain of what is expected from young women in Myanmar.

"One of the things is you can't get angry. You need to be quiet, you need to be patient, you need to be polite," she said.'

Aww, I can still remember the first time I saw that anthropomorphic dog walking around the city with a boombox.
