Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da made their third pre-release ahead of the Anima Animus Paradox album coming out in two weeks; go listen to “Untitled Solo” now. That page only lives until around 11:15 ET, so: Continue reading
“テヲノバス” (Tewonobasu? Romajidesu rejects this!) sounds like another return-to-old-POP song; it’s inoffensive, and you might dig it if you’re particularly fond of electropop. Continue reading
Ayukuma’s been making a lot of hay about getting their new single, “Tabidachi no Uta” (they’re calling it “Song of the New Beginning” in English), selected as the ending theme for this Naruto show that I’ve never watched but I know a bunch of people do watch because there are commercials on Cartoon Network and stuff.
You can get it via iTunes (Japan), too, which is pretty exciting if you’re so inclined.

But you can also get yourself a legit sneak peek by looking at the Naruto end credits in question.
Can I just say something? Continue reading
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
I hope it’s somebody’s birthday, because New BiS has a message for you!
Kidding! Kind of! Following up from “Human after all,” here’s another song that’s bringing influence in from all over the place — old-school heavy metal, disco, pop punk, #IDOL — to put together something way more fun than any one constituent element. Continue reading
Wow. “Loser Gospel.” Be still my heart.

There’s some serious idolcore happening in here. No harsh vocals, but it doesn’t need them. As usual, will keep the updates running after the jump. Continue reading
Update: I want to say that there’s no way this is true, but I bet it’s totally true. I have no reason to doubt our friend. Wild.
It feels like it’s been a while since I’ve been able to call on Pure Idol Heart for delivering on a good find, but this is just one example of why you should always pay attention:

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? Continue reading
I was just going to update the “WORLD END CRISIS” post from earlier, but then I remembered that I like to game my SEO and decided to create a separate home for this stuff.

Anima Animus PRDX is how Google translates the title, the Latin explaining the dual female/male aspects on the cover (and playing a little bit with “anime,” too, if I may be so bold). That’s Zenkimi, though; bright and shiny on the outside, simmering violence on the in. Their music sounds like id, you know, just unconstrained desire, emotions pouring out from the ancient, reptilian part of your brain. Continue reading
