Actually, yes, somebody (d0fph0t0!) did mention Babyraids Japan, in the context of the Best of 2016 voting and why the hell weren’t Babyraids Japan included? And the basic reason is that they weren’t nominated by anybody. But the other basic reason is that, a few posts about them here and there, they’ve never really caught on the way some others do.
So with lots of eyes looking at ye olde Homicidols.com over the next few days, let’s check in on the queens of “emotional idorock.”
What luck! This charming video appeared on YouTube about a week ago:
It might not be the blow-your-hair-back power of NATASHA’s self-titled (dare I say almost pompous!) 6 minutes of fire, but, if you like not just idol rock, but actual idorock, then you should have this song in your life.
I always feel a little bit badly for not including more Babyraids Japan, but they’re on stupid Ponycanyon and their stuff gets blocked in the USA and I wind up relying on others to tip me off when they do something cool and interesting (like this!).

Anyway, for the uninitiated, here’s some Babyraids:
Fun! I am alleged to have promised more on them at some point, so … well, it’s almost summer, and they’re basically walking feel-good times (“emotional idolrock” ftw), so I guess the opportunity will eventually present itself.
