Well oops. Not-quite-the-latest Codomomental project, akugi, who is currently in the lead for Group Most Likely To Fill The Komachi-Shaped Hole In Your Heart, officially dropped their second single and MV and … well, this is really different from the last one! In fact, my above description is way more apt than I would’ve expected. Team, predictably, adores the track and had a brief chat about the video, and then we all had other things to do and holy hell it’s Saturday, let’s real quick do something with akugi before the boss thinks we don’t like their things anymore.
It’s actually a really easy thing to do. Frankly, I’ve had the refrain in my head for days and have been completely happy about it. So, on the off chance that you’re in this community and you like sequester yourself from Codomomental for some reason and aren’t hip to akugi, let’s take this brief step back into, uh, mid-week to enjoy it all again:
Akugi, one of Codomomental’s new mysterious projects, has decided to soften out parting with 2020 by providing us with an amazing first MV for their first track r u serious?
Now, I use soften out here in the loosest of ways; our dear Dae has described the video as “Visual ASMR gone wrong” and “revulsing”. I prefer the term cathartic and nightmarish, for my part. The song will wrap you in a trance-like state for just under 3 minutes, and the psychedelic visuals of crushing, squishing, stabbing and an horrifying figure straight out of the likes of The Magnus Archives.
There’s been a lot of Codomomental to work with these past few days, gang, what with Tsurezure previewing their final song the other day and akugi letting us all know that we’re in for a world of trouble when their first MV drops probably any minute now. But the cherry on top (or maybe the whipped cream, I’m bad at this analogy) is that akugi is also gracing us with another new track, a complete change of pace from this one that under ordinary circumstances you’d only have two hours from the origin to view so if it’s still not yet your time zone’s equivalent of 9:00 AM ET then friend you should click in the tweet but otherwise you do realize which website you’re on right now right?
After yesterday’s impossibly bad terrible awful soul-eating news, one could be forgiven for wanting to not get too close to Team Codomomental for a little while. So of course it stands to reason almost perfectly that they’d come to us with:
A new unit
That is loud
That has a first song to share
That features Yamakomaro
This is of course officially available only for the next little while, but you know how we roll around here. Check the source and then click through.
