Andrew McCarthy movies. The Bawdies take a page from the 80′s classic Manequin where the band is a group of sharp dressed manequins posed to rock out. Yet they only come to life at night! We get a small clip of the video for “Rock Me Baby” and a behind the scenes “making of” video. Cool.
This single is out 2.8.2012 and you can preorder from Yesasia or CDJapan. I love the cover of this single with the band’s heads sticking out from the curtains. Turns out this song is also a theme to a Japanese show “HUNGRY!.” Eat it up.

Heads up for the ladies who like to drop it like its hot. Diori a.k.a D-Originu is clubbin’ ya upside the head with this banger track “Just Move it.”
Keep your eyes and ears open. “Just Move it” is moving to iTunes on 6.22.2011.
Read up on Diori’s blog and twitter for more. Holla at your boy! (did I just right that?)
Here is a clip promoting the girl group Not Yet that consists of AKB48 girls Yuko Oshima, Satoe Kitahara, Rino Sashihara, and Yui Yokoyama. What is interesting about their single CD+DVD combo is that it contains a short drama as well (that we see above.)
If you like what you hear and are a fan of J-dramas, pick it up now at Yesasia or CDJapan. It was released 3.16.2011.
Are you ready for Not Yet? Check out their official Columbia website for more.
Arise in Stability is creating a rise in my pants with their extremely awesome trailer for their new album “The Future that Amnesiac Draws.” Don’t ask what that means..
Do ask about their sound. Mathmetalcore. It’s crunchy, It’s mathy, and it’s shreddy. The trailer is scary too, because it reminds me how my computer died at work last week. Hitting the ESC button doesn’t help.
Their new album is still a ways away.. 4.13.2011, so it’s not on the internet retailers radar yet. But stay updated with Arise in Stability’s social media push. Twitter, Facebook, and Myspace.
The Korean ladies of 4Minute are looking almost Tomb Raider like in some of their outfits in their latest video for “Why.” And then they are wearing checkered vests and pants a minute later. I prefer the Tomb Raider look, myself.
The song “Why” is a thumper of a dance track. Poppy and a toe stepper, you’ll be bouncing along with 4Minute for a good 3 minutes or so.
“Why” is actually part of the J-dorama series “Akuto – Juhanzai Sosahan.” Get the single on 3.2.2011 from yesasia.com or cdjapan.co.jp.
Now, I’ll give you one minute to head over to 4Minute’s official japanese website.
Life is like a roller coaster.. so enjoy the ride with STAR GUiTAR and CICO in the single “Tonight.” It’s a great feel good party song with a good beat and some of the trendy pop effects in dance music today.
I will say this about the PV, whoever the person is who “brought back” large oversized-eye glasses deserves a punch in the face.
Find in on the album Carbon Copy out 1.7.2011. Get it now at yesasia.com or cdjapan.co.jp.
Ride the roller coaster over to STAR GUiTAR’s Myspace, Twitter, Official Website.
Do YOU know how I know YOU are DRUNK? The tie wrapped around your head like a bandana… and you are singing karaoke. I suspect Takada Junji is a fairly popular actor and comedian in Japan. I guess he sings too.
Find this single “Kako Nante Wasurenayo” at yesasia.com or cdjapan.co.jp. It came out on 12.8.2010 and has 4 tracks on it.
Follow the man on twitter.
You might have seen knotlamp’s video for Into the Sky over at J-Rock Explosion and had your stomach turned into a knot!
But just in case you haven’t seen it, I”m highlighting it today as knotlamp’s newest album Dot of the Galaxy is out 9.7.2010. That’s today folks! So you should get it at Yesasia.com or cdjapan.co.jp now! I like this song. It’s not fancy, but this punkish rock song makes me happy. Maybe I miss Ellegarden. Knotlamp is definitely one of the better substitutes.
Check out knotlamp at their official website and myspace.
The girls of AKB48 have broken into another subset of girls.. this time a trio called French Kiss featuring Asuka Kuramochi, Yuki Kashiwaga, and Aki Takajo.
Does the PV look like a drama? Well it should. The single + DVD version comes with a 40 minute J-dorama featuring the 3 girls. So if that catches your interest then preorder the CD+DVD combo out Sept 8th, 2010 from Yesasia.com or cdjapan.co.jp.
Read up on the group French Kiss at their official website.
Unfortunately the first thing I looked at this morning in my youtube subscriptions was this 0_o.
I hope you like shopping and changing clothes.
From what I understand this clip of a PV is from the Neo Idol Super compilation Vol 2, specifically track #4 恋のHoney Cherry (あいる). If you like it, grab it at Amazon of Japan. It came out in 2009.
Yes it seems to branch from the amazing Cuty Miracle and Idol School group. What??
