Well, today’s been a fairly heavy one (though I think I’m going to stay on the DEADLIFT LOLITA thing for a while yet), but some of the best and simultaneously most unsung work in idol is still happening, and now would be a great time to crank it up to 11 and rock out.
I speak, of course, of DAIDAIDAI:
I’m going to be honest: DEMON TAPES drives me nuts. I’m yet to hear something from them that isn’t a straight-up delight, and yet it’s so bloody hard to appreciate in full because most things are delivered either via short clips or lyrics videos, and there aren’t even all that many of those. I love what the team puts together*, though, and will happily carry their water any time the debates about who in idol is great come up.
Interesting note on DAIDAIDAI, though: They’re now calling the sound “SOLID CHAOS POP”, as accurate a descriptor as I can come up with. Please continue to make more of it!
*Every so often, I fall a little too in love with how I write about a thing; that post is a great example
