Thought they could sneak one past me, did they? So akugi, either the latest or second-latest debutante from Codomomental (I can’t remember) and therefore loved by default around here, are officially releasing an EP next Wednesday, and to thoroughly whet our appetites the bosses have released another track, yes on a limited basis, but a limited basis that I managed to snag at the right time!
Anyway, this one guests Uine from fellow newbies TOKYO Tefutefu, and is definitely different from the norm. Set your ears to enjoy!
You know what to do. Continue reading
You may have seen the news this morning that Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da is releasing another album of re-releases, which is all for the good even if I do personally prefer my Zenkimi to be of the more chaotic variety. There’s an MV coming, too, apparently. But no Zenkimi announcement of music to be released is complete without preview tracks on two-hour windows, which we’ve lately been a little bit less aggressive in grabbing afore they’re gone, but I did get to this morning, hallelujah.
First, the tweet:
Those links aren’t going to do you any favors at this point, I don’t think, but we here at Homicidols Dot Com do pride ourselves on catching these guys before they truly do disappear forever. It’s a service to the late risers and people who aren’t terminally online! I did however restrict the post to just the track we haven’t heard a hundred different times and ways already (if you want that one, here), so let’s go through the motions from here and … you know the good stuff is behind the jump.
Well, friends, we may have lost Yukueshirezutsurezure for good over the weekend (I hear that Daemon’s working on a retrospective), but Codomomental has proven over the years to be nothing but extremely flexible no matter the circumstances, and there are a pair of new projects for us all to become irrationally excited about. The first to meaningfully see the light of day was akugi, and now today we get the first (aural) look at the latest piece of the company’s puzzle, Tokyo Tefutefu.
As usual, it’s a two-hour preview; as usual, we here at Homicidols Dot Com love and respect you and will help you listen if you miss the window.
You know the drill. Continue reading
There’s been a lot of Codomomental to work with these past few days, gang, what with Tsurezure previewing their final song the other day and akugi letting us all know that we’re in for a world of trouble when their first MV drops probably any minute now. But the cherry on top (or maybe the whipped cream, I’m bad at this analogy) is that akugi is also gracing us with another new track, a complete change of pace from this one that under ordinary circumstances you’d only have two hours from the origin to view so if it’s still not yet your time zone’s equivalent of 9:00 AM ET then friend you should click in the tweet but otherwise you do realize which website you’re on right now right?
And click through for the usual. Continue reading
After yesterday’s impossibly bad terrible awful soul-eating news, one could be forgiven for wanting to not get too close to Team Codomomental for a little while. So of course it stands to reason almost perfectly that they’d come to us with:
- A new unit
- That is loud
- That has a first song to share
- That features Yamakomaro
This is of course officially available only for the next little while, but you know how we roll around here. Check the source and then click through.
More fun after the jump. Continue reading
Aside from world events, this week has been particularly weird because yours truly has been finding distractions in looking back at previously-known-but-kind-of-obscure idol acts and heretofore unknown idol acts. It’s a good way to burn off energy! But yeah, as mentioned in the earlier post from today, while I do have to get on my butt and try to feature as many debutantes as possible in the next couple of weeks, I’m still drawn to those acts that I connected with once upon a time and then to one degree or another lost track of. Tomorrow’s Weekender includes a great example; 143 here is another.
Oh heck yeah, this is exactly what I was waiting for — it didn’t take long for KAQRIYOTERROR to go from announcing a new album to promoting the sucker. In true Codomomental fashion, the official window is two hours, and we immediately dishonor that.
More on the flip. Continue reading
Well, okay, maybe it’s not quite as over-the-top as all that, but I was brought into all of the update-y stuff for this post by a Soundcloud notification, and the first thing I saw from it was the song title and my mind did all of the requisite stuff from there, actual facts on the ground that were to be subsequently discovered be damned.
PIIIIIIIN, who technically can only exist when they have seven members, have yet another new regime of seven members, and to commemorate the latest changeover dropped this new number that, correct, did scare me on their behalf, but just turns out to be a nice homage rather than what the past 16 months in idol have us so conditioned for: Continue reading
It’s been a while since I did one of these — let’s see if I remember the formula.
I mentioned these upcoming solo songs from the … I was going to say “newbies” in Not Secured, Loose Ends, but it is now quite true that nobody is “new” anymore, per se, and that really only Komachi is truly a group veteran, so I say instead members of Not Secured, Loose Ends, which they’ll be employing in their nationwide one-man tour, and which had better include the recently-mysteriously absent Komachi, but that’s a topic for a post we hope to never have to write, so instead let’s listen to one of those songs, which is now available under the terms of what I like to call the Codomomental Special!
Two hours, yes, and that time is already dwindling, but this is Homicidols Dot Com and making archives accessible is something that I like to do, so: Continue reading
You guys, I swear I was minding my own business this morning, and then along comes ol’ Viz Major to ruin things and inadvertently provide the lede:
What the hell was that! I thought he was making up this whole “poetrycore” business too (I can sympathize!) until I bothered with a minute’s worth of homework, but yes, it’s true, and so is the Yuyoyuppe thing, and while the complete lack of individual identities suggests that the lyrics and not-use of the I word in any of their press does suggest that this may not be an idol thing, they’re published on an idol label (for Spotify, at least) and sound idol, so I’m giving them the benefit of the doubt and also me an opportunity to bring this wonderful injection of beautiful pain into your lives.
