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

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.

Submit Your BiS / Peri Ubu Conspiracy Theories Here!

The news came out so late last week that it barely registered for most people, but Peri Ubu has gone into the hospital with what the Googler called enteritis. Rather than just forge ahead without her, BiS quickly announced that all appearances through Aug. 20 were being cancelled or postponed, with other WACK members filling in on some bills. This included TIF, much to the chagrin of some. However, Ubu was tweeting even on Friday, basically saying, hey, I’ll be okay, just gotta get well, we’ll be back grrr.

Then things took a dark turn!

We All Will Continue to Melt More, Thank Goodness

Today’s a light one, team — not that there isn’t/wasn’t plenty going on, just that there’s a lot of organize and wade through, and I got other stuff to do because Sunday — so I’m just going to catch up on an item from last week that I skipped over for want of time.

You’ll Melt More! We like them; smart people usually do. TGU did this really nice report of their Akasaka BLITZ performance:

Which isn’t notable (and I swear that I’m not becoming Just Re-reports from TGU Like a jerk Guy) in itself — it’s a show report, you wouldn’t have written it if the label hadn’t seen to it that you would it wasn’t great, etc. — but because of details announced thereabouts! Continue reading

If You Haven’t Heard the Digest for PassCode’s “ZENITH”, Now Is a Good Time

So amid all of the hubbub yesterday, I just plain up and missed the fact that PassCode, with the release of their ZENITH album just right around the corner, have officially put out the full album trailer:

For what it’s worth, they also added preview tracks to Soundcloud, but they weren’t available on U.S. or EU servers when I tried just now, so maybe it’s just a Japan thing, or maybe they’ll change the settings later, I dunno. Actually now available! Continue reading

The New GANG PARADE Album Sounds Like a Goal

Let the news about late-year WACK releases begin apace! First up is GANG PARADE, whose GANG PARADE take themselves higher!! will drop near the end of November:

I’m guessing that it won’t sound like a Jackie Wilson jam, either

I was going to say, I hope that it works out better than “Beyond the Mountain,” but how did other people feel about that. I heard mostly middling things, which seemed about right. Continue reading

I Hope You’re Ready for a New Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da Album

If you are, maybe the world is.

Egoistic Eat Issues(!) will grace us with its presence in September. It will undoubtedly have enough synths to start a cosmetic surgery clinic in Napa. Continue reading

Stuff Like This Is Why Q’ulle Is So Cool

These videos were making the rounds yesterday after the former Danceroids released them and people all kind of collectively went OOOOOOHHHHHHH; I was too busy being a dumb jerk at work to share then, but I’m ready now!

So if you’ve picked up Q’ulle’s newest single, “DRY AI”, which you should have done because Q’ulle’s worth your time and money, you know “PARTY ROCK!!!!” already; if you have not, this song may be a new one for you:
