For shame to all of you clowns (that’s right, clowns!) who didn’t support sugartrap in the Corenament. I’ve been digging them pretty much since the first time I heard them — not as hard-edged as others, nor trying so hard to be hard-edged while still easily being quite noisy and earnest. Who doesn’t like that?
Anyway, maybe this can help to wake you up to them:
I’m taking the reveal of “dropstar3” to be an indication that another new single — at least a single — is on the way (“dropstar2” led off “Disillusion”), but there isn’t anything official about that yet. Maybe they just wanted to put out a random low-budget dance video? Show off Nana’s choreography skills?
Good morning, you guys! I have a feeling that Toronto’s still feeling the effects of Next Music from Tokyo, which moves on to Montreal tomorrow. I’ve heard nothing but great things, so I’m glad for everybody involved.
Me, being stuck at home, I figured that unspooling some relatively new content was a good idea. Let’s visit more with idols that we don’t hear from often enough!
Take, for example, Sugartrap! Who are good and cool and inexplicably not a ton more popular than they are! They can bring the heat as well as most, with the added bonus of being pretty good performers, too. So how about: Continue reading →
You guys might be aware of EXTREME IDOL TERROR, the fairly regular get-together of … I don’t need to explain that, do I? There are particulars, but they’re not tremendously important in this context. What is important is that EIT and SELL NU IDOL?, another semi-regular showcase that also needs very little explanation, had a joint show recently, and I figured that the Corenament being upon us would be a good enough reason to share some sets from it.
So here’s Sugartrap!
And of course Guso Drop!
Imagine the agonizing choices that lay before you, amigos!
Reverse the Curse! See, back in the early days of the site, it seemed like just mentioning a group out of context (like, “hey, let’s post some random Under Beasty video, haven’t heard from them in a little while”) would lead to something crushing coming along about them not long after. Or, like in the case of Psybou Kanojo, the discovery itself led to the project’s end.
But the Curse also has a flipside, and it’s that sometimes random mentions turned into fresh new releases (like Under Beasty!). And so it is this time! Fresh off of getting a chance to bring up Sugartrap again for the first time in a while, here they are with a preview for their upcoming first full album:
It’s been a minute since we last got to visit with this fun idolcore duo, and I’d honestly been looking for an excuse to come back to them for a few weeks because there is negative reason to not dig them. Fortunately, because people like us are a kind and generous lot, and because I stalk interesting YouTubers, our old pal Anagram Hound provides:
Or, more specifically, I need people to tell me about Sugartrap. Their “Brute” (come on!) single is still fairly fresh, and they’re showing up in every feed I have.
There’s a ton of good stuff in that playlist, including the Eternal Beloved Psybou Kanojo
I set up a thread in the Idolcore forum (because that’s about as well as I can categorize them — dark EDM?); if you have info on this PassCode-meets-AKM duo, I’d be very grateful if you could share it there.
