Oh my.

Oh my. Cleans. And rapping! Continue reading

This Is the Literal End of Especia

You guys are going to have to forgive me for this one, but I have love to Especia that goes way beyond anything that this website could ever contain. So fancy my interest when this happened yesterday:

That’s right: I’ve kept my Especia notifications set to on for months in the hopes that the group would be resuscitated or something. It bore fruit in the form of the live recording of their last live: Continue reading

EMPiRE Is Coming, But First This Other Jerk

So while BiS was busy holding a streaming fan club live and reinstating Pour Lui via protest via squat (yes), EMPiRE was being set up for something. Based on the typically cryptic “SOMETHING WILL HAPPEN AT 20:00” tweet that, when coming from WACK, never means what you expect it to, it is nonetheless turned in one’s brain into something fantastical and disappointing all at once. Hell, though unlikely, it could’ve even been a graduation announcement!

Instead, we get the cruelest of all musical teases. Yes, friends, you may in fact get your first listen to an official EMPiRE song, and you may in fact download not only that EMPiRE song and a lyrics sheet, but there’s a catch.

You literally gotta go through Watanabe to get them. Continue reading

Has Anybody Cracked the BiS Code?

This was a cryptic and mysterious message!

If you follow along to the post in question, you get instructions for downloading a song — a new song! — by Watanabe and Pour Lui. It’s called “BEST FRiEND FREED“*. Continue reading

You Can Download the New There There Theres Single for Free

I was writing that as if there’s some kind of fake-out involved, but there’s no fake-out. Just like almost everything else AQBI related, the “There’s something behind” single” is available for free via OTOTOY for one week starting today:

I use the term “new” here a little liberally, as you may already be familiar with the material if you follow TTTs, but that’s all well and good because free studio versions muchachos! Continue reading

GANG PARADE’s ‘Beyond the Mountain’ Is Available for Free in Many Ways!

I didn’t see this one coming!

Because I’ll never actually understand WACK’s business model, nor how T-Palette operates in general, I’m surprised every time this happens: If you want GANG PARADE’s new single, you can download it for free from OTOTOY (preferred site for officially free idol downloads!), or you can just get the songs straight from Soundcloud: Continue reading

Gird Your Loins for ‘GiANT KiLLERS’ and Also Get It If You Can

That previous teaser was never going to be enough; BiSH dropped the trailer for GiANT KiLLERS a little while ago, and it (the new tracks, at least) is a scorcher:

Lovely. Continue reading

In Case You Missed It: There There Theres 1st Single Free for a Week

This is (again!) old news for most folks, but it’s worth having and pushing out there a little: There There Theres, releasing their first single post-resurrection, are making it available for free via OTOTOY until the 10th:

There’s an interview there, too, if you can read it / know how to parse through Google jibberish. Continue reading

All Right, Now You Can Get at GANG PARADE’s Latest

For a hot minute there, GANG PARADE had made this announcement about the availability of their “FOUL” single on OTOTOY (for free! why!) and the addition of “Close your eyes” to Soundcloud without actually having posting the track to said service, and OTOTOY keeps taking its sweet time to zip up my files, so I had to wait like 30 whole minutes for the thing to arrive.

Anyway!

It’s not even the first time that’s happened. Fun!

It’s a BiS Friday Morning and Getting Better

BiS, in the lead-up to their Re:STUPiD album, have been teasing out tracks on Soundcloud and for free OTOTOY download every week, with … mixed results? Skepticism abounds! So after a weird little teaser this morning, BiS followed up with the latest, and presumably last two, teaser release ahead of what’s probably an MV next week and then the album itself the week after.

Two songs! Mixed bag! How does it shake out?


Download

Okay, I like this one. “Mysterious Hall”? I had very brief flashbacks to Pantera’s “Cowboys from Hell” for a very hot second, and then I realized that I was listening to a little bit of a BiS repeater, and that’s okay. Continue reading
