Here Are Two Fresh Wonder Lander Tracks

What a weird day in chika idol; the YAMIAME thing happens, and Wonder Lander, who insists that they have four members despite still only doing anything with two of them, drops a pair of songs on Soundcloud

Zenkimi Says, Welcome to the New Hell

Egoistic Eat Issues is (holy crap) just a few weeks away, so expect the Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da promo train to be kind of relentless. Which, great! Go ahead and share your music! Because as we all know, these two-hour windows are only two-hour windows in spirit.

The good stuff, as usual, after the jump! Continue reading

Give This Candye Syrup Track a Spin and Tell Me I’m the Crazy One

It’s a slower kind of day out there, amigos, but thank goodness for the genuine breadth and depth of idol, as it can turn over almost anything to talk about. For instance, today, Terry noticed that Candye Syrup had uploaded a new song Not new-new, given that it’s dated to the same day as “CSIS,” but new enough for us!

Did You Guys See the Latest Full Power Girls R?

Gee whiz, I thought I’d popped this out a couple of weeks ago, well before TIF, which is precisely when this was released and precisely why it was released, as Zenrokyu were at TIF and I think there’s even video of their performance.

In case you missed it, though you may not have, Luis was Luis on the Spot in adding a second track from hair salon yume-kawaii idols Candye Syrup in the Idolmetal group the other day. It’s … it’s quite a composition!

It Turns out That We Can Feel Pretty Good about the New ayukuma Single

Happiness is waking up to a notification from ayumikurikamaki’s VEVO, and the video actually plays in your country!

It’s the full, actual MV for “Kizuna Mix”, which we heard before and I was in the process of running down because I enjoy being spectacularly wrong about things. Continue reading

Did You Catch the Latest from WiLL?

It took me a minute to buy into WiLL back when they were getting a little hype a few months ago, but I did come around enough to be surprised that I’d almost forgotten that the poor things were out there, idoling away — specifically, I thought “oh, right, I didn’t see them on TIF or @JAM or anything rosters yet” — and genuinely a little stoked when Japanese Idol MV RTed this one yesterday:

When I Said That I Wanted Beatdown Idols, NEVE SLIDE DOWN, This Isn’t Quite What I Had in Mind

I’m a friggin’ doofus and missed the latest from we-B’s surging up-and-comers NEVE SLIDE DOWN this morning until reminded by our good friend Pure Idol Heart, and of course then immediately had to get into a meeting and do actual day job work instead of something enjoyable like a new NEVE SLIDE DOWN video.

It’s Time for Some Fresh RABBITS Lab

So, RABBITS Lab. Remember her/them/whatever? Strange. But new!

That’s pretty fun! Continue reading

The Time Has Come for Candye Syrup’s First MV

And in things that came way out of left field this morning:

You guys remember the origin of Candye Syrup, the functional mega-yume-kawaii idol group, from Candye Syrup, the hair salon of the same name, right? Results; idols have them. Continue reading
