This is just a place to keep track of Touhou/-related music on THBWiki with a specific theme that isn't really "coverable" by current wiki software.

Ideas for more lists

  • Releases with liner notes or commentary (e.g. every 人生の気だるさ日和 album)
  • Cover arts that reference other cover arts (e.g. Jealousy(Unlucky Morpheus) and X Japan's Jealousy
  • Crossovers with other fanbases (e.g. Ragnarok Online, Kirby, Madoka etc.)
  • 听着酷似周杰伦的音乐 (
  • Subjective lists
    • Uplifting
    • Depressive
    • Meditative/Atmospheric
  • Hifuu album canons
    • Maribel is Yukari!
    • Maribel isn't Yukari!
    • Maribel is dead but is also Yukari????????
    • all tracks are just renmeri chuchu (a.k.a the worst non-r18 hifuu music taste possible?)

ε=( o`ω′)ノ ε=ε=ε=┏(゜ロ゜;)┛ (/ω•\*)

视觉系/Visual Kei

多个封面/Multiple Cover Artworks

Note that fake-out artworks (e.g. ) or updated covers (e.g. Apollo Rises) aren't included.

Unconventional Release Formats

For physical media, this includes anything not distributed through regular sized CDs or DL cards1. This can include mediums such as vinyl or cassette.
I can't explain what I'm looking for in digital releases very well, but to give non-Touhou examples, it would include albums distributed through phone calls or through a series of online puzzles.

Furry musicians

For musicians who consider themselves to be a furry.
Suggestions welcome.

Chiptune Type Breakdown

Disclaimer: I am nowhere near an expert on chiptune music. I'm making this list because I'm curious about what each artist/circle's chip music is categorized as in terms of sound.
The types on this list come from the Russian chiptune wiki chipwiki.ru. A lot of the info are from there too.
If you know any Touhou chiptune albums in 1-bit, created using virtual platforms like PxTone or PICO-8, or music in the digital fusion style, please feel free to tell me about it!
Whoops I should have added this disclaimer already but I'm not doing this list to say that fakebit is bad. What I hope you get out of this is a sense of the variety of approaches people have to making chiptune, even on a hardware/platform level.

Music Reviews????

You like Touhou music reviews by people who are at least somewhat knowledgable about the fandom? 
Just learned that 东方我乐多丛志 has music reviews and want to see more?
Here's a list about it.
  • Touhoupop - a review site by kbnet, who wrote circle introductions for the now-defunct overseas doujin webshop BuyDoujin. The reviews talk about the music with a dose of music knowledge and humor. The site has an ongoing series that looks at Alstroemeria Records' albums and the context that they were released in. Also, the writing style takes influence from Ishkur's Guide to Electronic Music, and by that I don't just mean the guide namedrop in the Nite Versions review.

Futuristic Music

This is for things that sound futuristic, not things that have a futuristic theme like Hifuu albums.
Think science fiction, utopia and dystopia, cyberpunk and solarpunk, space exploration, cyberspace, and virtual reality.
What futuristic means is subjective, but for me a lot of it comes from sound design - are there a lot of electronic elements? If the entire album/EP is electronic, then is there a diverse range of electronic sounds that makes it different from your average dance album?
side notes
Since this is a subjective list, it's going to be biased towards some genres. Take chiptune for example: I grew up playing flash games, so I find most chiptune music outdated and would probably not include them on the list. In contrast, someone who grew up play playing lots of NES games would put music similar to Metroid or Mega Man soundtracks on the list.

But even "outdatedness" is subjective. The sound design for Metroid: The Sky Call's soundtrack is based on 1960-70s sci-fi movie soundtracks, which makes it sonically older than the first Metroid game soundtrack. Even then, I find it fresh and futuristic. On a similar note, I find a lot of future bass incredibly nostalgic and a lot of futurepop4 forward thinking, even though futurepop existed way before future bass did

Name Release Commentary
BLANKFIELD Fast Forward To End Of East (2009), This Is the Dead, and I Reached the Deathless. (2011) Chaotic, heavy, and flashy, like the soundtrack to a high-tech shmup.
Draw the Emotional Funny party in the Fog (2011) This is here mostly because of the track Tuning space, which mixes piano music, mechanical clock sounds, and experimental electronic music rhythms all while creating a cathartic experience.
Ecriss [Dualism] (2018) The best comparison I can make to releases on this list would be a "night" version of IOSYS' Bloom. Ecriss and とらっしゅ (from ごんばこんなか) are the two people on this list who I consider extremely good at sound design. Both mixes together acoustic (piano, flutes, bells, and so on) and electronic elements in their own distinct ways. The end result is something that feels organic and yet high-tech at the same time.
IOSYS Bloom (2009) The most solarpunk album on this list. Bright, playful, and has a great mix of acoustic and electronic elements.
Pizuya's Cell Clair de Lune (2013)
Pizuya's Cell 電幽バイオメトリクス (2014)
Quintet EXLIPCE (2011) Space-y dance music.
Yonder Voice ヴァイス・シュヴァルツ (2018) The alarm sounds on Black and White feels like I'm in a rave inside a nuclear plant where Utsuho is the DJ. The weird speedcore moment around 1:45 is also worth pointing out because the sounds used in that part is more "abstract" than the ones used in traditional speedcore.
永久立体<キュービックループ> FASTER THAN LIGHT (2013) One possibility that computing technology opened is the ability to fit more and more complex media in shorter and shorter times to create experiences where images and sounds unfold at speeds too fast for the brain to process. What I'm saying is that this is the musical equivalent of watching someone play Tetris/rhythm games/shmups at an extremely high level while knowing that this doesn't even scratch the surface of what the top players of all time can do.
ごんばこんなか Any release (2012-) As I said in the commentary for Dualism, とらっしゅ is extremely good at sound design. The circle's Hifuu albums fuses electronic music with folk and rock instruments in a way that's both organic and high-tech. The closest non-Touhou comparison I can think of is Ed Harrison's Neotokyo soundtrack but with less vocal experimentation and more folk elements.
群雨アンブレイラ Any release While Blankfield's warinside takes the concept of "cyber heavy guitar music" and turns it into energetic battle music, シイナフユキ takes the concept and turns it into an imaginary film soundtrack. まりつみ also contributes with atmospheric electronic music with great sound design.
上海爱丽丝幻乐团 东方绀珠传 (2015)
上海爱丽丝幻乐团 燕石博物志 (2016)
Nu-naut Any release (2015-) The Megaman Battle Network series (and, by extension, the Star Force series) is filled with cyberspace-y music, so it shouldn't come as any surprise that music done in the style of those soundtracks would also sound cyberspacey.
八雲総研 夢現忄実験 -Dreal experiments-(同人专辑) (2018) Something that is based on Serial Experiments Lain should be somewhat futuristic.
Melonbooks Records Compilation CD-BOOK 東方スチームパンク (2018) A compilation of steampunk-themed arrangements. (Suggested by Violet)
梦现彼岸结界社 能源卮暮铭 ~ Futuristic Gloaming Energy (2017) It says "futuristic" in the title! okay I'm not trying really hard for this list
This section is for people whose Touhou-related music doesn't fit on the list, but makes original music that does.
Name Commentary
Camellia While his Alstromeria works are great, he really shines when making his style of eclectic hardcore techno. Take all the big electronic dance music genres from this decade, blend some of them together, add some hardcore elements, then put in some chaotic and ethereal moments, and top it all off with shiny clean synths and sci-fi titles, and you get a futuristic-sounding Camellia track.
Kobaryo More eclectic hardcore! Take Camellia's music, but make it faster and add some more genres into the genre pool and you get a regular Kobaryo track.
Lapix (from LiLA'c Records) His original albums are the closest you can get to regular EDM in J-core, but those albums are also some of the most cleanly produced in the genre. They're also more dense and rhythmically complex than you'd expect.
Mr.Sweden (from Stratiotes) Mr.Sweden's other band, Regnum Caelorum Et Gehenna, plays melodic death metal that features distorted synths and electronic interludes.

Horror Music

Think horror movies, doomsday scenarios, and really, a lot more things.
Name Release Commentary
MA.S ATTACK Drawn Drones Drown Drone (2010) The first two tracks are somewhat tame, but the last two feels like something out of Yume Nikki or .flow.
UFO County (2009) It's just one hour of noise and xylophone-sounding things, I don't recommend listening to the entire hour, not because it gets too extreme at the end, but because the intensity of the music stays the same throughout so it gets boring.
蟲とlumpyとミュージックコンクリート 蟲と東方と青酸ソーダ (2007) Each of the tracks have a distinct horror feel:

Nyctalopia Reverse feels like being trapped in a forest with a lot of bugs

暦 (screamer warning) feels like watching a biological weapon evolve in real time

スキスキdieスキIシtell feels like Flandre hunting you in a large dark room

堕武者グラインド Any release (2007-)
深夜放送 Any release (2012-) Noisy lo-fi guitars and sudden transitions between sections gives the circle's music the feel of an old horror movie.
  1. While distribution through download card isn't as popular as CDs, there are a significant number of such releases already recorded on the wiki and listing all of them would take up quite a lot of space
  2. An online music sequencer with a chiptune-ish sound palette.
  3. For what it's worth, I think this should have a page once it's finished and released. Other music databases consider Tristan Perich's circuit albums eligible for inclusion and the same should apply here.
  4. Referring to the 1990s genre. Because of misunderstandings, the term "future pop" refers to a different genre in Japan. Due to further misunderstandings, the genre that future pop refers to in Japan is called something else entirely in English.
