Not once, not twice, but thrice now has Codomomental’s latest bizarre sound machine dropped a track on us in just a single work week. As usual, “Like a Fake” is on the two-hour window, but that never stops anybody who really wants to listen to anything, anyway.
So while I spent a good part of the weekend pining for some positive news from Tsurezure (I think the 100 Days was an inadvertent curse), it’s their new sister group that’s popping out the new song preview on Monday morning. “Hide and Seek” is currently on the two-hour teaser release, but you know how we roll around here:
I stand in complete solidarity with Yellow on the issue of those poofy hair things
Things got a little heated online the other day when Hissatsu Emomomomo — bizarrely, not even close to the most ridiculously named thing in idol to debut just this year — started to get out some new, important things. For instance, there’s a new (venue-only) single on the way:
What do you do when half of Western wotadom pings you first thing in the morning on a friggin’ Monday?
You get obnoxiously hype about it!
I refer, of course, to Suzu Hinata, ex of petit pas! but still mercifully on the idol world’s radar for most of the last year thanks to doing just about everything but doing a rock idol project, has aligned herself with Candye Syrup and … I’d say “is going dark,” but what does that even mean in this context, other than “okay now I’m a Nightmare before Christmas fetishist who hangs out at Spencer’s on the way to Hot Topic.” Continue reading →
So for the handful of individuals other than John and me who pay attention to poor, benighted REGiNA KiSS, you may be aware that they’re simul-releasing their third and fourth singles literally right now (or, rather, have already, because Sunday is now over in Japan because spheres). Other than all of the times when I definitely tell you what you should be doing, I’m not going to tell you what to do (on the presumption that you’re an adult and have agency), but I will tell you that you need to at least give this multi-preview a listen. REGiNA KiSS tends to surprise people who put in the effort!
As you might imagine, I’m endorsing the fourth single, “Ikenai xxx” for the sole reason that the B-side (of course it’s the B-side) cranks. I’m sure that its actual subject matter makes sense with the title, but there ain’t a single 50/50 thing about that — it’s just loud and going for it.
Thank you for humoring me and for giving REGiNA KiSS a chance. You may all go back to whatever it is that you like to do on your Sundays.
Ah, Under Beasty, as good and pure and true as any rock idol act in the game, all bootstraps and try-hard until they got picked up by a real-deal agency, and … well, I guess things are roughly the same still, except now their outfits are a little sharper.
Anyway! They had teased their upcoming single a little while back, with the live debut and everything, but now there’s a teaser version of the MV to sink your teeth into:
Well, gang, the idol gods continue to smile upon us, and now it’s time to get our very first listen to the latest single from Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da. Previously untitled, it’s now “せきららららいおっと”, which I’m sure has a nice translation or at least a clean romanization, right? Anyway, enjoy.
