Anyway, Zenkimi dropped their two-hour restricted window onto an updated version of “World End Crisis,” and you might dig that and so might the poor souls who find their way to idols through Google. I was very literally asleep when that happened, so John:
Well, here we are once again, ぜんぶ君のせいだ。 (Zenbu Kimi no Sei da.) is tossing us another bone. Here is the track World End Crisis re-recorded with the current lineup. I believe this is just a demo track due to the rawness of the mix. Anyway, it is a two hour window. Enjoy. Also, it seems that […]
I was being a little lazy on the updates about BiSH’s upcoming EP because reasons, and leave it to John to have the goods.
I have one issue with this: The re-recordings with the updated membership; how dare you write Hug Me out of that history?
Otherwise, I don’t buy a ton of idol stuff myself, but I’m all over this stash.
Here we are about one month away from the release of BiSH’s new offering. Oh, and does it sounds like a good one. I always get excited for new things from BiSH because they are always so good. So, lets take a look at what we have on offer this time.
I’m going to let you guys in on a little secret: When you wake up in the morning and see that you have a DM on Twitter and it’s from Phillter and the preview is just the “Sent a link“, you’re probably about to get something really cool.
I mean that title to be nuanced, by the way.* One, I feel like I’m not good enough for these gifts from Bokura no Oyugi; on the other hand, what crimes did I commit that would justify having this mass-media blasted into my consciousness? Maybe call it delightful pain, I don’t know.
The terror clown idols who have now spent several days as my absolute personal obsession on three different occasions, the literal stuff of nightmarish carnival hellscapes getting caught making out with some easily impressionable doe-eyed idol candidate behind the calliope. They really only ever release stuff in the same month as a blue moon or something, so these are an absolute treat to get.
The idols known as Not Secured, Loose Ends, who hit Canada like a ton of terrifyingly elegant nightmare bricks over the past week, have headed back to the cozy confines of Nippon. But they had the nicest exchange on the way out:
ゆくえしれずつれづれ / Not Securd,Loose Ends カナダツアー全行程が終了しました！本日は一日主催者スティーブンの優しさでバンクーバーの景色や食べ物を楽しむ事も出来ました！本当に最高の感謝を。初の海外でのLIVEツアー最高なものになりました！ #NSLEpic.twitter.com/2lsgU10u4u
It is with a bittersweet heart that I join the rest of North America in bidding Yukueshirezutsurezure adieu here at the end of their tour across Canada. In a week’s time, they no doubt made a massive impression, and good for them, because in a world in which even the altier side of idol has become oversaturated with derivative and copycat acts, Not Secured, Loose Ends remains a unique little light that deserves to be fed until it’s a raging inferno that engulfs all that comes across it.
Ahem. Did you catch them in Vancouver?
Today's ゆくえしれずつれづれ / Not Secured,Loose Ends are live at the Canadian Tour Last Show @ Biltmore (Vanc)! The turn is 11: 20〜! #NSLEpic.twitter.com/3QWFcehoQa
Hot damn, you guys, this is good times. I used the occasion of BiSH’s announcing this show (with live broadcast!) to complain about their having been quiet for a while — as truly a First World problem as has ever existed — it was with a generally low expectation for anything really coming of it. That was stupid! Of course people were going to record it!
This sucker is worth settling in for; I’ve seen my share of BiSH lives over the past couple of years now, but this might be my personal favorite stage of theirs, starting off with a bunch of the songs of theirs that I hold in highest esteem.
The Canadian adventures of Yukueshirezutsurezure Core Hate (I kind of love that) continue apace, though not for much longer, as their free headliner is now just a week away, and you’ll be able to see the members looking ahead to business yet to be done back home.
However, I want to continue to reflect on the outrageous honor of getting to interview NSLE in Toronto, and the tremendous job that Ariane did in chatting up the members and management, and in apparently becoming best friends in the process. I figured that it would be a popular item, given how well our overall community regards the Codomomental acts in general, but I didn’t expect that friggin’ waves of traffic that hit have been hitting the interview. It’s pretty great! And then I found a primary reason why:
