BiS Gave Us New Video for a Not-new Song but Also Unveiled Their New Look

I actually almost popped when the announcement hit Twitter — NEW BIS MV OMG! — and was just the tiniest bit let down that the video wasn’t for the upcoming single release, but was actually for “Romeo’s Heart” off of the last album (which was good on the whole!). It’s still an indie release, so it’s published by Tsubasa and is, of course, region-blocked until some generous soul posts it to another service helpfully re-upped by a friend!

Get a Little More into What Yannderu Ame Sounds Like

Good morning! Things are returning to normalish: I’m getting some more time back finally, I think that I may have found a solution to that weird commenting thing (and please tell me yea or nay if it seems to be right for you), there’s idol things happening … yup, good times are upon us.

And to respond: Yesterday, Yannderu Ame chucked onto the world a lyric video for “Idol Love Memorandum”:


Thanks, PIH!

Hm. Continue reading

Another Day, Another Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da Song Preview

The other day, Zenkimi graced us with Yotsu’s elegant, somewhat menacing solo contribution to the group’s upcoming EP; today, they dispense with the whole member-per-song thing and instead give us a whole-unit (plus band, from the looks of things) teaser:

Go listen and tell ’em you like it by using #みすふぃっとらゔぁーず. Also come here for its this-is-how-it-works save job for posterity. Continue reading

I’ve Been a Bad Maniac This Week, So I’ll Make It up to You

Hey gang!

I’m finally back from the traveling and conferencing and stuff, and I stopped for a second to realize that, , we haven’t done any of the regularly themed daily posts! Zounds and gadzooks!

So let’s go ahead and make amends: Here’s something perfectly acceptable for WTF Tuesday and Indie Idol Wednesday in one fell swoop:

It’s Time to Listen to Zenkimi Yotsu’s Solo Song

If you recall when Mashiro’s solo song was released a little while back, word went out that every member of Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da would have her own solo track. And then there weren’t any other solos, but Komachi from NSLE was included.

Well, it’s Yotsu’s turn. Be afraid.

Permatrack and lyrics after the jump. Continue reading

Oh Yeah, There Was Also New uijin Yesterday, Too

My bad! But give me a break, I’m away for work and paying approximately ~35 percent attention to everything.

In this case, Terry popped this live video into the Alt-Idol Facebook group, and I knew that I’d need to come back to it at some point.

And the Award for Most Intense Group Harsh Vocal Goes To …

KIRAKIRA GERIRA!


Wait for it

Sorry, I had way too much stupid fun with this last night. I sincerely wished that, rather than a hotel in a large Texas metropolitan area, I was instead near a mixing board so I could do nothing but sample and loop that descent into madness. Continue reading

This One Step Closer to Industrial Idol Is Intoxicating

If we’ve ever interacted much on Twitter or Facebook, you know that my personal white whale is an idol project that actually goes full-on industrial — I’m talking the really filthy, heavy, distorted electronic gamut rum between NIN and Ministry and all the way out to Fear Factory. I want this, as it would tie a neat little bow around idol’s ability to genuinely do everything.

This isn’t quite there, but it’s close:


Thanks, Pure Idol Heart!

Damn, Spark Speaker’s Next Song Rocks

I was absolutely shocked to find out just now that I’ve never done a single blessed thing with Spark Speaker (Twitter), and that I was completely disconnected from their whole thing for reasons unknown (see below), but that’s okay, we’re here now. Lee shared their latest song in the Idolmetal group yesterday, and hell yes, let’s do it.

This is being released ahead of their first one-man, coming up on May 3. I’m presuming that they’ll do the whole song there; it’d be kind of weird otherwise. Continue reading

What the Crap, You Guys? Marbles Broke Up

You all should just be thankful that I walked myself back from a “lost your Marbles” pun

This is dumb, bad news, you guys. Remember Marbles? Remember how it was like “oh neat, hardstyle idols, one of a kind!” and there was much praise? Well, on that original post, this happened:

Prophetic! Continue reading
