The charming robot dancing salarymen are back for one “Last Dance.”
Their choreography is mesmerizing as always, but the single “Last Dance” has some soothing techno charm as well. It’s like the second coming of Brit band New Order. LOVE IT.

“Let’s GET IT ON!” exclaims Heenain on her disco jam “MIDNIGHT.”
Pump your fists in the air to this retro 90′s R&B sound single. Heenain looks adorable, whether she’s strumming her guitar, spinning records on the dance floor or up in the studio.
This is pure party funtime song. Finding it will be a little tough though. It’s currently up on the Korean digital website Melon. It was released on the H9 mini album today on 11.13.2013. (Maybe it will hit US itunes soon.)
Follow Heenain on twitter and step out of your typical KPOP groove!
Tofubeats enlists Chisato Moritaka for his kidbop synth single “Don’t Stop the Music.”
This ain’t a Rihana techno plea for “please don’t stop the music.” Tofubeats goes retro with disco beats and 80′s synth and laser sound effects.
Chisato Moritaka sounds great and you can really see what she looks like at her facebook page. Don’t confuse her with the child lipsynching in the video.
So tofubeats album can be bought multiple ways. If you elect for the digital version you actually get more exlusive content at iTunes.jp on 11.13.2013. It’s like 3 more tracks.
Or you could go to CDJapan and get the physical edition with sono sheet. And if you are a cheapo, there is a regular edition.
I don’t know why but the cover of his album reminds me of the anime City Hunter. Check it out at tofubeats official website.
The telephones are bringing the 80′s back big time with their Flock of Seagulls hair and Adam Ant attire in the amazing clip for “Don’t Stop the Move, Keep on Dancing!!”
Whistles are blowing, synth is soaring, and the guitars are shimmering. God this song is pure early 80′s love. Dig the clothes, and dig the bad sway dancing. Someone gimme an eyepatch.
Get your ass over to CDJapan and grab this single out 11.6.2013.

Check out their killer photo at LIFriends’ teichiku artist page.
UMAA Inc shows the most wonderful animated autotuned videos, and their latest youtube video is the number laden video “PIkkooon!!” by Siina Mota.
Imagine a computer generated town realization of Sudoku and this anime girl that walks through it while listening to her jams on her earbuds. That’s “Pikkooon!!” in a nutshell.
It’s wonderfully imaginative. The song might be a bit too much autotune for my liking but it still retains its techno synth charms.
Siina Mota (Shiina Mota)’s new album ARUTAWA SETSUNA POP drops on 10.9.2013 at CDJapan.

Prepare to be eaten. Drunken Tiger gets resuscitated for a new EP with the help of Yoon Mi Rae & Bizzy. The first single off their The Cure album is “Sweet Dream.”
Wow. I’m talking some serious special effects are used in this video, from the robotic tiger viscerating a human, to shooting Tiger JK up into outer space. This video is AWESOME.
As for the song, I wasn’t expecting a Black Eyed Peas type dance single, but hey, it’s actually damn good. I definitely want to go where they go.
So what are you waiting for? The Cure hits on 9.16.2013 at Yesasia or look for it on US iTunes.
Drunken Tiger’s official website is fashion magazine slick!
Perfume releasing only a short version of “1mm” is a pane.
Get it. Because of the window panes and the annoyance of video shorts. Ha ha! Whew.
Anyhoo. Here is Perfume’s short clip of “1mm.” You’ve probably already seen it, as over 43,000 have watched it before I got up this morning. That’s impressive and a testament to the power of Perfume’s dancey songs. “1mm” is definitely 1 of their better outputs too. In fact, I love the long intro to this song.
If you want to take it to the next level, step up to LEVEL3 out 10.2.2013 at CDJapan and Yesasia.
Perfume’s department store is HERE.
Kid salarymen have it rough… especially when they are 8 years old. Hearing it from your wife, your boss, your bartender and some thug in the alley, the best escape is a Black Gene for the Next Scene concert. Watch “Change to Chance.”
Black Gene for the Next Scene have one of the coolest visual kei band names and now they have one of the coolest videos too. “Change to Chance” is super cute, and will spin your towel like a helicopter. Who knew visual kei could be this good?
The song is a party raver, and that would make sense it’s on BGNS’s new album Dance to Rave out 8.28.2013. Score it at CDJapan and Yesasia.
The band is sporting some killer shades at Black Gene for the Next Scene’s official website.
