Yukueshirezutsurezure Will Release Full Album, Shatter Your Dreams

It had been a little quiet on the Tsurezure front lately, so the ever-unsettling “we have an announcement to make at 22:00” tweet that went out last today (that’s “last night here, but today there” in Time Zone) was pregnant with possibility — another out-of-nowhere video release? a teaser track to follow their big sisters’ lead? the weird feeling in my heart that Shidare was going to move to said big sisters?

None of the above!

Guso Drop’s New Video Will Light a Fire under Your Ass

It’s here! Guso Drop’s first real video in like forever!

Made you look! That’s actually just video from Anna’s birthday live the other day. Pretty decent cover of “Headbanger!!” at any rate. No, it’s the “Gushin” video that you came for, and it’s the “Gushin” video that you’ll get. Continue reading


Can Kamen Joshi Do It Again?

First picked up here, and it’s official — the Mask Girls are releasing another single:

A Three-headed Underground Rock Idol Monster

Excuse the heck out of me, you guys, for making something kind of neat and fun into a super menacing-sounding Halloween leadup thing!

So if you remember Ophelia 20mg (and you should), she’s a cool solo rock idol making it work for herself in little Osaka clubs, and she’s good at what she does. Here’s a recent set:

I had seen kind of recently that she was filming for an MV, but no sign of that yet

But Ophelia isn’t on her own out there in the world; the cool thing about being indie is that you get to wear your friendships on your sleeve and embark on cool little projects together. Continue reading


Two More Hours of Free Zenkimi

Wanna hear ayumikurikamaki’s New Song?

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.

Good find, Jordan!

Can I just say something? Continue reading


The Next Two-hour Zenkimi Window Has Begun

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


Punk up Wednesday with ‘Nakisou Sunday’

Its release was probably just a formality, a matter of “when” rather than “if” after they pre-released the track on iTunes a couple of weeks ago, but here’s Billie Idle’s MV for “Nakisou Sunday”:

So old-school! Continue reading


All of the Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da Album Details

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
