Next Friday, We Go #Deathless4Necroma

Hello everybody! I wanted to share this quick reminder about the next big community idol support project, this time to celebrate NECRONOMIDOL and the release of their DEATHLESS album that I could not be giddier about.

The overall details are here, and right here are the really relevant bits:

  • Friday, Feb. 24
  • Corpse paint and/or spider
  • On your face
  • Snap a selfie (or, gods forbid, a group photo)
  • Update your social profile picks for the day
  • Use #Deathless4Necroma and tag @NECRONOMIDOL on Twitter or Facebook or maybe even Instagram, I dunno
  • And remember to tell your friends!

So. Continue reading

The Billie Idle Double Album Experience

Any time that Billie Idle goes more than three months without announcing a new release, I start to wonder what’s wrong. We just crossed that barrier in a post-bi bi bi bi bi world, so the requisite announcement teaser meant either “album” or “member revolt,” and here we are:

April 26! Two albums! Continue reading

Two Fresh Song Previews from BiS Make Me Feel Weird

Welcome back into the world that somehow has BiS in it again, amigos. I’m not in the least bit unhappy that one of the basest of inspirations for me putting this whole game together in the first place is back and living and stuff, though I have concerns! And those concerns are very important!

That being as it may, we know that there’s a second indie album from what I think is BiS 2.0.1 if I’m doing the version histories properly, and, presuming that they follow the same general pattern of releases as they did through BiS 1.3.2, this would be the loud and angry album that would, well, make BiS into BiS.

Oh hey look! Two new songs to preview for free on Soundcloud and download from OTOTOY!

You Review Things: DISDOL | “HARERUYA”

Dofphoto has another gift for you! And very well-timed, as DISDOL crept a bit into the wider homicidol consciousness over the past week, and darn it, that makes me happy. Personally, I’m dying to know if HARERUYA is any good.

My first experience with DISDOL (they were called Dissenter Dolls back then) was back in March 2015, which I’m pretty sure was their debut on stage. There were four girls and they only had two songs, which were “Jolly” and “Miraibana,” the latter being the track that caught my attention. So like anyone would do, I followed them on Twitter. A few demos of new tracks were uploaded to Youtube and it seemed it wouldn’t be long till DISDOL were in the studio. Continue reading

All I Want Right Now Is the Yanakoto Sotto Mute Album

I’m not even sure if I’m strong enough to handle how amazing this album is going to be:

Sorry, that’s the cart before the horse. Yanamyu is awesome! Their two EPs and regularly live-debuted new material prove it — while classic alt rock was slain by the nu-metal beast in the West, it managed to re-gestate in Japan and materialize in idol and Yanakoto Sotto Mute is right there on the leading edge. Their releasing BUBBLE right around the group’s birthday feels so, so right. Continue reading

We Got Two More BiS Previews!

While I’m not even going to comment on the latest BiS-related kerfuffle, I was pretty eagerly waiting for when they were going to do something more album-related than this ridiculous marathon business, and they delivered today.

Mixed bag of stuff!

Ska-core! How tremendously fitting in the context of what else is scheduled for today!

HKFC Titled Their New Album after What We All Really Need

Patrick snagged this one for the Idolmetal group, and though we have it listed on the calendar(!), it’s too good to pass up. Himekyun Fruit Can, big sisters of Fruitpochette and right at the top of the idol rock heap, have an album on the way for the day after Valentine’s. That’s, like, pretty much a year after their last (very good) album.

A Kick to the Brainpan (yes) will also feature solo tracks for Mai (who doesn’t age) and Honoka, with the songs composed by a whole slew of bands. More details here. Continue reading

Is This Where We Are Now?

Bear with me, you guys.

I’ve seen different iterations of this tweet now several times in the last few days:

Because DISDOL has something like 45 members, and they all RT one version or another

You might not find it as interesting as I do, but look at which account it’s coming from, and look at the URL linked in it. Continue reading

PASSPO, Zombies on a Plane, It’s All Good

PASSPO, who as we discussed previously are cool and good in their own right, have an album coming out next month. People seem to be excited about it! If this is the degree of fun ideas and general “girls rock” goodness wrapped up in it, I bet it’s going to be a pretty good album; for now, a bunch of people over the age of 30 are going to be like “oh, ha, I recognize the things they’re doing here!” and a bunch of people who only remember MTV for Real World/Road Rules Challenge are more “I don’t understand why there are dancing zombies on an airplane.”


Have you met any flight attendants? For people who could easily zone out, they’re the least likely zombies ever

That’s right: The do-it-all PASSPO just did their own tribute to “Thriller.” Continue reading

Exciting Times for Yamaguchi Kassei Gakuen

This post started off as a little blurb about Yamaguchi Kassei Gakuen having an album coming out soon, a fact completely neglected in that business about their big headliner show. But that’s okay, because what happens when idols have albums to promote?

They do release events at record stores?

Well, that too, but I was getting at: Continue reading
