You’ll Melt More Is Just That Damn Good

Brian tagged me in an RT yesterday, and I didn’t get what it meant for a little while, so again I’m like a day behind the really good stuff, but this is really, really good stuff.

You’ll Melt More!, who are certifiably amazing, are releasing a new mini-album and a DVD from their Loneliness and Counterattack tour:

BiSH Will Compel Me to Spend Money, Won’t They?

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.

What Did I Do to Deserve These Bokura no Oyugi Videos?

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.

“Suicide Story”!:

Your Homicidols Weekender #28

Happy weekend, friends! Have you been thinking about fun alternatives for idol MV sets? We need more fun!

This was a hell of a week, though, wasn’t it? Of course the highlight was Papermaiden’s interview with Not Secured, Loose Ends in Toronto, and Daemon’s eyewitness reporting on their first appearance on North American shores. I’m still a little sore that I missed out, but that’s the way the cookie crumbles sometimes. Besides, details are soon to come on another beloved-by-the-community group venturing forth to lands outside of Japan, and I for one can’t friggin’ wait to know the specifics (about which I’m deliberately being coy because you probably know what I’m talking about but I only feel like posting once it’s all lined up).

Of course many things happened and didn’t get included here on the sacred pages of Homicidols.com, so it’s time to look back!

Don’t You Ever Get Tired of This, Maniac?

Did you want the details on Hauptharmonie’s final concert?

That’s sad. I’m sad. They didn’t even send me a preview of the last album. Boo hiss. Continue reading

Let’s Watch HAMIDASYSTEM

I thought I’d finally go back to some of the other bits of video of lesser-known idols to flesh out today’s offerings, gang, so: Remember HAMIDASYSTEM? I don’t want to oversell their heaviness or anything, but we had some fun with them last time, and they put out this little bit of video recently. I felt like maybe it’d be a good idea to visit with them again!

100 Days of Tsurezure, Day 18: Denouement

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?

And did you meet this weirdo?

New DISDOL Is Great for Thursday Hurtsday

Gosh darn, you guys, was I aware that DISDOL had a single coming out next week? I feel like I wasn’t — the last thing I remember being aware of was Airi’s graduation after having been an idol for literally half of her life — so this was a nice surprise when Pure Idol Heart waved it at me the other day:

This is actually one of the B-sides, if I’m looking at the info on the single correctly, so interesting that it’s what they’re putting out as a promo. Might there be an MV on the way? It only took forever and a day for them to give us “VICTORIA” last year, after all. Continue reading

Here’s That BiSH Live You’ve Been Waiting For

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.


CHAOS PARTY, indeed

100 Days of Tsurezure, Day 17: Manifest

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:

Thanks for noticing, senpai! For what it’s worth, though, Ariane wasn’t the only one to catch up with Tsurezure; Kawaii Podcast met up with them in this cafe: Continue reading

Indie Idol Wednesday: Sugar & Solt

This is what happens when you just let genres mix, people! IT’S A TOTAL LOSS OF CULTURE!

As one will, there I was, just minding my own business the other day when friend to us all Pure Idol Heart got into another round of going deep down the indie idol rabbit hole, which of course means plumbing the depths for excellent Indie Idol Wednesday material.

I have to say, Sugar and Solt is a prime candidate:


I likened it to Motorhead goes kawaii; tell me I’m wrong
