And Now I’m Looking Forward to sora tob sakana’s New EP

I get the feeling that lots of folks have been aware of this and just not telling me, but I saw on Friday that coolly creative alt-everything idols sora tob sakana were putting out an EP:

That’s good news! But its real value is in contextualing the tracks that they’d been adding to Soundcloud lately. Continue reading

You’ll Melt More!’s Latest Is Proof That They Can Do Whatever They Want

I had this whole other thing primed for the pre-release of the Loneliness and Counterattack EP (specifically about this teaser video), but forget it, the real deal is here:

The very first thing I thought was that we’re seven months early for Halloween stuff! Continue reading

Oh, Good! There’s a Preview for Mistress’s Upcoming EP

Damn, do you guys remember Mistress, who are cool and good? You do, because I see you out there sharing live video all the time! But this it the first good development I’ve seen from them in a while, and you might only have about 1:40 to check it out even if the album preview has been taken down:

Would you trust me when I say that it was pretty solid? Continue reading

How Did I Miss the New You’ll Melt More! EP?

Gee whiz, you guys, have been asleep at the wheel or something? Why didn’t somebody wake me up? “Hey Maniac, one of your favorite things is doing a thing and OMG WAKE UP YOU’RE DRIVING INTO A–”

Good times.

Anyhow, having seen the very cool promo art (see banner!), plus some additional tweets from the members that referenced things I did not understand*, I finally followed through and —

— oh em gee! Continue reading

NECRONOMIDOL Will Officially Have the Most Appropriate Release Format This Year

I know what you’re thinking, and I should append the title with “… That Isn’t Human Skin,” but SEO and all that

Shame on me, friends, for almost not catching this very retro-appropriate press release from Necroma — never send email, basically — and not being able to share … Continue reading

Damn, Predianna, Where Have You Been?

Never let it be said that Homicidols.com is home only to music that would be at home in your cousin’s ’84 Impala; we also indulge in music that said cousin keeps in a guilty pleasures box in his basement apartment. For instance, I think we can all agree that legit power pop* (sometimes also known as idorock!) is a good time, and to be able to get more of it into our ears from time to time is a very good idea.


Viz Major, as always, on it

They have an EP thing, Artless coming out in February on a very busy day in idol. Continue reading

Oh Em Gee, There’s a Dots EP

Can I confess something to you guys? I’ve been a little de-motivated lately. We had a super fun December with all of the Best Of stuff, and then the first few days of the new year were like a smorgasbord of music and video and announcements … and then not a whole hell of a lot happened. Now, granted, there are always new discoveries to look at, and it’s not completely quiet out there in the idolverse. It’s just … you know, sometimes you need a little kick to make things go. It’s winter, it’s cold, the sun never shines. Can’t something go off and add some excitement?

WHY THANKS FOR DELIVERING, DOTS!

Yes! It’s a Dots EP! And it is marvelous! Continue reading

Yajima Mai Is Birthing a 2nd Mini Album and Has the MV to Prove It

Let’s keep it dark today, shall we? I owe a few people credit for pointing out this one, but let’s give it to @AshLikeSnow17 for being the most recent. Here’s the vampiric solo idol Yajima Mai crushing “BLOOD RESOLUTION”:


That title though

DAIDAIDAI’s Already Got 2017 Moving for Them

Late last week, DAIDAIDAI tweeted out this cryptic message-via-image:

Seeing as how the most Japanese I can read there is “that’s DAIDAIDAI’S name, I know that,” I ran it by people who do have Japanese, and the general agreement was that “it’s a message, but who knows?”

Great! Fortunately, Osaka’s latest electronic idolcore hype group made their intentions clear not long after: Continue reading

The Edge of Goodbye: Bellheart Goes out in Style

Bellring Girls Heart went into dormancy yesterday with their HELLO WORLD live that was streamed live on YouTube and then, after a little while, mercilessly taken away from us, thereby robbing untold dozens of international fans of the opportunity to see idol’s murder of crows go out like only they could.

Good thing for us, then, that Bellheart re-published the video!

That’s not the only gift that Bellheart left us, though. Continue reading
