I had the stupidest damn day yesterday (well, after the BiS thing), and I’d really like to have a nice Friday. Being the generous sort, I’d like for you to have a nice Friday, too! Fortunately, the coolest twee girls in idol (aka, Avandoned) posted a full show while I was busy doing a bunch of dumb stuff that I didn’t want to do (yesterday), and now let’s all just enjoy it together.
Ahh, Malcolm Mask McLaren, you are so good at moving these releases out in little bunches. Just last week we had “Just Believe”; this time around, we get “like this sneakers,” which I’m sure is new to just about everybody except for you lucky dogs who were in Japan the last couple of months, and that title, I think I know what they’re saying, but I’m also having a lot of fun with it. Almost as much fun as the song! See how I did that?
And that, friends, is melodic hardcore. Up to and including that xylophone. Continue reading →
You may have heard about Bellring Girls Heart being gutted in the very near future when Ayano and Mizuho graduate, and the group going on a I-believe-it-this-time temporary hiatus before a very soft reboot next year.
What you may not have heard about is how they’re going to go out as vividly as possible.
Tell me that they aren’t rocking You’ll Melt More!’s look from last year
Meet Attain Music (Twitter), or maybe that’s not really their name because Attain Music is definitely the company, but the group doesn’t seem to have a name of its own? Anyway, as you can see, they’re cutting out any and all pretense and going straight for the darkest, blackest combination of all — kawaii rock. Maybe “Kawaii Rock Idol” is the name?

Today’s a light one, gang, because life doesn’t slow down just because you’d like it to (I am listening to Darkthrone, and I’d like for things to be quite slow indeed!). BUT I’d made a point to check up on Q’ulle’s Other Side of HOPE Asian tour finale that happened tonight, seeing as how there was some uncertainty as to just what would happen with Q’ulle at this point, new album aside.
Doop-dee-doop, surfing around through Twitter … hello, what’s this?
Why, it’s high school idols in corpse paint playing with the tools of suicide! How uplifting!
Say hello to Naniwa Six Immortals of Poetry, or Naniwa Rokkasen, as they like to be called. This song is from their first single, “Don’t Die!,” which is coming up at the end of the month. How fitting! I mean, overall, the song and video aren’t nearly as bleak as things start off, but it definitely has that “I kill” feel to it, with the excluded girl still harboring some ill feelings. It’s a song with a message. Continue reading →
Set your calendar for Nov. 26, because. It’ll be good for you.
And if I hear that Yanakoto Sotto Mute has rolled out a new song, you’d better bet your sweet bippy that I’m going to very quietly lose my mind over the fact. Via Viz Major on the Idolmetal group:
With a title like that, one could be led to believe that the post-grungy alt-rock Yanamyu might be covering Pearl Jam (or Willie Nelson covering Pearl Jam), but that’s not the case. Instead, it’s a song that I’d probably have demanded be played at my prom and then sulked when it wasn’t because I was one of those jackass kids. Continue reading →
The correct answer is “I do! I do!” if you’re a fan. And it should be even if you aren’t, because while the pun doesn’t actually make any sense (or even actually be a pun, given that the title is something different), this is exciting-ass stuff:
