Yanakoto Sotto Mute’s ‘Lily’ Is Absolutely Perfect

Late last night, Yanakoto Sotto Mute tweeted out that they’d be releasing their MV for “Lily” after having shown it off at their live. Thanks for the warning — I need this.

OH WHY ARE THEY SO PERFECT

THE SPUNKY’s Disbandment Draws Near, and the World Will Be a Little Less Fun

Variously updated became I’m an idiot and can’t check info on my own stupid website

Good morning, lovely people! The Corenament rages on, now down to the Final Four (coming in a bit), and the timing has its own bittersweet element; THE SPUNKY sort of rocketed into this guy’s consciousness, and no doubt that of many others, during their surprising-but-deserved eventual third-place finish in the 2016 version.

This final live in Nagoya, their old home base, we’ve known about, but it finally came yesterday:

This Is Like How Doctors Trick Kids into Taking Medicine, Only Way Brutaler

There I was last night, minding my own business, when the ever-reliable Pure Idol Heart was tweeting things my way (that’s what friends are for!), and right into the ol’ feed came what I immediately proclaimed to be my new favorite thing:

Christ. That’s filthy. Have another:

That’s Strawberry Painkiller (Twitter), and whoever was smart enough to slip opiates into fruit deserves a friggin’ raise. Continue reading

I Bet ayumikurikamaki’s Latest Is Great; If Only We Could See It

H/t to Phillter for pointing out that ayukuma released the video for their upcoming single today; thumbs down to whoever decided to publish the thing without availability in the United States or EU. But if you can see and hear, I bet it’s pretty good!

Somebody will have a torrent available later, I’m sure; I’ll add if/when I can; you can also view on Facebook

The Newest Ladybaby Is Almost There

I didn’t have a good opportunity to get this added yesterday, but Terry (not John!) did, and you all may as well get your material that way. And it’s Thursday Hurtsday, and why not shoehorn in a little death pop for old time’s sake? My only complaint: TIFKAL needs to cool it with the piped-in man-voice, as it sounds increasingly ridiculous. We’re going to get that with Dead Life Lolita; time for Rie and Rei to move on.

Another day another YouTube notification……and look who it is the ladybaby girls! feels like only yesterday we got to enjoy their MV for the B side “Easter Bunny” from their next single. Now they are back with the main dish “Pelo” already! an boiii does this song have some nice guitar licks (pun intended)

Oh Sweet, mistress Released Their First MV

Happy Indie Idol Wednesday! I actually have another piece that I’m sharing, more on point, more of a discovery, but. You guys remember mistress, right? They’ve been percolating around for the last few months, sort of slowly building up the way that idols should do, putting out barely SFW t-shirts and getting their first EP ready. And now, finally, to promote it, their first MV:


How many idol songs have been called something along the lines of “DECiSION” over the years?

Sink into This Sakidori Hasshinkyoku Video for Your Tuesday WTF

The Papermaiden suggests that we take this sucker for a spin, and I couldn’t agree more! Ever since PIH shared it over the weekend, I’ve been somewhere between complete unbelief and total thankfulness that such a strange trip exists in my world — so accessible, but so astonishingly out there at the same time, like if some of Bellring Girls Heart’s material from last year were to be turned into high-energy kawaiidol madness.

That’s Sakidori Hasshinkyoku (Twitter). They’re new. Continue reading

Don’t Watch the New Hoshina Fumimi Video If You’re Dieting

If you’re currently hungry, or currently trying not to impulse-eat, or have a weird thing about other people eating, or if you’re Pour Lui, definitely do not take the next several minutes to watch Hoshina Fumimi stuff her face from a very close angle; if that’s the case, hit play here and then switch to another window and just listen.

However, if you have no such limits, you may suddenly find yourself with a hankering for donuts:


TY Pukovnik Krv!

This New Band ja Naimon! Track Is out of Control

I don’t know how many of you guys follow Banmon (Twitter) usually (if you do, bless you, because denpa makes the world go ’round), but it just got a bajillion times easier because Pony Canyon decided to get on the YouTube Red extortion racket train and finally made their video content available for the first time in well over a year.

And this new track, the title of which is eluding machine translation (I hope; the various suggestions are something else) but that doesn’t matter because this is out of control and it could be called “I like pie” and you bet I’d be down with it, feels like a multi-genre-less delicious musical disaster:

True to form! Continue reading

There Are Now Three Cheeky Parade Entry Points Here, Help

Cheeky Parade! Their name itself summons up notions of incorrigible Cockney youth, possibly chimneysweeps but almost certainly guttersnipes, song-and-dancing their way through the cobbled streets of turn-of-the-last-century London while well-heeled ladies and industrialists scoff in offense. That is not them, however!

No, this Cheeky Parade, they’re a pretty popular idol group that does some sitting between worlds; they aren’t loudols per se, but they can get loud, as evinced by their donation of one-fifth of NATASHA (entry point 1), and they like to mix it up and do things like NERFY GUINER BIEBER (entry point 2!). But they can also do the loud thing on their own merits:
