What the Rabbits Hath Wrought

Man, you guys, I don’t know if this quite qualifies of Thursday Hurtsday. I just know that my ongoing leporiphobia demands that I bring this back.

Remember RABBITS Lab? I do — it’s etched in my nightmares. So, like, I’m stoked that yesterday brought a couple of new videos.

It’s NoA Time for Indie Idol Wednesday

Once upon a time (last year), there was an underground idol project called DiSPANiC. Odds are that you have no idea what I’m talking about, have never seen nor heard of them, nor will you ever because the group just casually broke up a while back, casting the two members to the wind.

One of those members was Noa, who has something of an identity in the idol world as a model and singer and stuff. The modeling stuff I knew about, because that’s what’s usually on her Twitter feed, but I’ll also confess to having had stopped noticing very much from her until Jul suggested the other day that I include some of her recent musical work in the Weekender. That’s not a bad idea, but come on — this warrants much better than the Weekender: Continue reading

I Dig the Latest from SPARK SPEAKER

My bad! This new number from SPARK SPEAKER actually happened a few days ago, but I was apparently asleep at the switch. Fortunately, Lee shared it, and I had it open in a spare tab, and then I saw and remembered and:

A Familiar Face in a Really New Place with AIBECK

There we were, friends, just minding out own business when this guy, this pusher comes out of the shadows and says, “Hey, you guys wanna see some new idols?”

If you know Pure Idol Heart, you know that this is commonplace! It’s why it’s important to make friends, because friends who know more than you or have a 13-hour head start on every day can and will give you referrals that you might never have found on your own because OH LOOK A BUTTERFLY. But that was last week(ish) when PIH first brought up AIBECK (Twitter); John wrote about them before, but I figured that I’d wait until this mythical teaser/trailer thingy came out so as to avoid clogging the lanes.

Oh look, it’s that thing! Continue reading

It’s a Zenkimi Sneak Attack! Another New Track

Holy smokes, you guys, I definitely didn’t expect Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da to drop another two-hour teaser window for another song (from the upcoming EP? from yet another release that’s yet to be announced because they’re just all over the place anymore?) even after they put out that “good news coming!” announcement over night, but here we are!

Click if you like (and it’s before 10:00 a.m. ET), or get the goods on a permanent basis after the jump. Continue reading

Samples of New BiSH ‘GiANT KiLLERS’ Tracks? Please.

Well, amigos, it appears that now that I re-cracked the seal on BiSH a few weeks ago, they’re back to being regularly in the rotation. Which is great, because BiSH is great!

Last week, we got the exciting news that they have an EP coming out; this week, thanks to eagle-eye Richard, we get to listen to some new material ahead of the release:

One More Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da Solo: Togare!

Lousy Zenkimi with their push announcements for times when I’m not going to be able to do anything about their likely-to-be-awesome music … anyway! The long saga building toward Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da’s Mini-album O’ Solos (that is, the release that finally broke my ability to keep track of what all Zenkimi has on their schedule) has reached its end with one final solo, that of newby Toga Ren:

Full listen after the jump. Continue reading

ICYMI Because I Sure Did: ‘World End Crisis’ Re-recording

So Zenkimi’s going to keep doing these late-night releases, huh? On the weekend. Why, it’s almost as if they’re prioritizing their domestic fanbase to maximize media impact in their largest market! And why not — their “Wagamama Shinsei Hominina” video is well on its way to being their most viewed ever.

Anyway, Zenkimi dropped their two-hour restricted window onto an updated version of “World End Crisis,” and you might dig that and so might the poor souls who find their way to idols through Google. I was very literally asleep when that happened, so John:

Well, here we are once again, ぜんぶ君のせいだ。 (Zenbu Kimi no Sei da.) is tossing us another bone. Here is the track World End Crisis re-recorded with the current lineup. I believe this is just a demo track due to the rawness of the mix. Anyway, it is a two hour window. Enjoy. Also, it seems that […]

Oh, Living Dead I Dolls. Oh!

Sorry, guys, that’s probably not the best reaction to LDID’s little teaser that they put out at noon (Japan noon!) ahead of their show tonight, and I’d have preferred to have something cute (clever-cute, not kawaii-cute) to say about it, but this sucker just keeps growing and flying and then:

Gracious! Continue reading
