Perfume’s new song called Saisei to be used as the theme song for the movie Shijinso no Satsujin.


Can hear a couple of seconds in the trailer, sounds cool, like something out of Linear Motor Girl, Electro World era. I guess that’s Nakata’s thing lately, Challenger was also a pretty old school track.

That latest ichikoro MV was my exposure to Ichika. What an incredible guitarist. His use of harmonics, sweeps, taps, and just general riffing ability are super impressive. I guess he's amazing on bass, too. Whatta guy. He also plays on Ibanez, so we can be friends.
Yeah, he is a great guitarist. Tho, I'm not really into his solo stuff, feels kinda dry for me. I like ichikoro exactly because Enon and friends provide a nice, groovy, rhythm base that goes along really well with his style. Well, at least this song of his with Enon as guest vocals is pretty good, not sure if the rest of the EP is like this:

Whole album is pretty great as expected.


Teto’s 2nd full album is gonna be fantastic.

Arashi is now on Spotify Japan, and began uploading MVs to YouTube, wow
Only 5 songs so far, hopefully they release everything at some point.
Wonder if we’ll get more Johnny’s stuff on Youtube and streaming platforms from now on.

Having a Youtube channel for the Juniors was already a big step forward.

New DAOKO song for the anniversary of Dragalia Lost. Nice bop.


NITRODAY keeping that 90s spirit alive. Their previous stuff was already quite neat, hope they become a bigger deal in the indie scene.

Shinsei Kamattechan will release a new album on January 8th, which is the date of their major debut. Almost forgot they’re celebrating their 10th anniversary with Warner.

Ametalk‘s episode about BiSH was great. Hope they‘ll attract a lot of new fans thanks to this. All of the guests did a very good job showcasing what make them so cool. They were the the number 1 trending word on Japanese Twitter during the show!
New MV dropping tomorrow. Song is already streaming, it’s Rhythm, one of the A-sides of their upcoming single. Very nice ballad composed by Aina, Momoco wrote the lyrics.

My friend wanted more groups like Babymetal. I'm not into all of these, but I told her to check out some for herself: Necronomidol, Ladybaby, Yukueshirezurezure, KAQRIYOTERROR (still not used to calling them that...), PassCode, Zenbu Kimi no Sei da.. She already knew Band-Maid. Anything else I should tell her to listen to?

stump sock

Edit: Also, she's the one who showed me Ironbunny, which I posted about here recently (so she obviously knows about them already haha).

OCEANS are one of the most promising bands from The Ninth Apollo, excited to hear their first album next month.



CreepyHyp released a new version of their song Band, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of their current line-up.
It’s one of my favorite songs so I’m really happy we get a video for it.

So in the area we're staying, there are two venues which will host several interesting bands. I might check out all three of these: Tri4th, Miranda Otsuji and Chocol8 Syndrome.

Oh nice, studio live version of Sato Chiaki’s latest single. Reminds me of Neko to Allergy.

Haha, the Ametalk episode about BiSH did wonders (all the albums were 300 yens the day after it aired)

I was never that into Noisemaker, but for some reason I’ve been listening to them quite a bit lately. Their newest song is pretty cool.

Friend if mine saw Kero Kero Bonito tonight. I unfortunately had to tend to a family matter out of town. Apparently the show was packed, so hopefully they come back to North America soon for some festival so I don't have to wait until they tour a follow up album.

Fo sho.

Along with the choreography, it is one of the two key tracks for me off of Future Pop

Chan Mari’s first EP is great stuff. Wouldn’t mind her getting more singing parts on Gesu’s songs.

I'm sure it was posted in here when it happened, but I somehow missed that wowaka died this year. I found out because of a Project Diva thread just now. Fuck... kinda heartbroken. Been listening to hitorie with y'all for years, and I always planned to see them live. I wish I made that happen years ago.

Kurita, you got to see hitorie live, didn't you? If so, I'm glad you have that memory.

Yeah saw them three times (2016, 2017 and 2018).

They’ve actually uploaded live footage of that 2017 show I went to since it’s getting a blu-ray release next month.


The 3 remaining members are still touring (Shinoda is the one singing), so I wonder if we’ll get new material someday.
Fujifabric kept on going despite the death of Shimura so who knows.

The "DADABABY" minialbum by DADARAY is amazing. I had never really listened to them before and I love this.
Highly recommend their full album (well any of their releases tbh) released two years ago.
Got my favorite song of theirs on it.

I’d love to hear Kawatani do self-covers of Dadaray stuff one day...
