Let me apologize in advance.. is this Japan’s answer to G-Dragon? BLADe has the hair and wild attitude, cross-dressing and riding a tricycle in his underwear in his video for ‘I’m Sorry.”
Yet, something is missing. BLADe lacks the swag of drrtyness of G-Dragon and the lip piercing is so 90′s. The guy is clearly being fashion conscious, yet still not as outrageously amazing.
I’ll give BLADe props for trying.. but a copy is a copy is a copy.
BLADe’s single is out on 11.6.2013 at CDJapan.
Get the lowdown on BLADe at his official website. He used to be with the group BRIDGET I think.
Only Kyary Pamyu Pamyu would mix Christmas colors with Halloween themes.. and it’s a beautiful mess in “Mottai Night Land.”
Costumes have always been a part of Kyary’s appeal, and the monstrosities this time around literally take the strawberry cake. When she turns into her bear costume and drops the most kawaii little poo, you know you’ve stepped in something great. “Mottai Night Light” is full of shock and awe.
Rather than give away all the good stuff, let’s just say “Mottai Night Land” is a visual treat, especially the animated sequence. If there ever was a live action magical girl, Kyary is it.
Buy the single out 11.6.2013 at CDJapan. Hurry and you get a free poster.
She’s a busy girl, so find out all her going ons at Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s official website.
Emiri Ota’s pixie-like face will probably remind you a lot of Bjork. Well after listening and watching the video for “月のレヴェル” you’ll probably think she’s just as crazy.
The song bursts with static guitars and mad piano banging and the video features Emiri Ota in a wedding dress playing a high-stakes game of tiles. And when you have a doppleganger underneath the table possibly helping you cheat, well there’s a good chance you’ll get busted.
This video is bizarre, but in a good way.
Emiri Ota’s album Renaissance will be released on 8.28.2013. Score it at Yesasia or CDJapan.
Visit her official website and like her on Facebook.
There is nothing sexier than a man who cleans up garbage from the beach sand. At least that’s why Hi-Fin seem to find dreamy. I’m totally serious.
The single “Kaigan Seiso Danshi” is subtitled so you can read the sweaty garbage collecting details. The song also has that retro 80′s storytelling appeal, so the music has that sweeping pop sound.
So Dia lady, Eiyasa!Brother and Hi-FIN are three groups that have songs on one album out on 8.7.2013. Preup at CDJapan.
Read more at the Satoyama Movement artist page forHi-FIN.
GROUP HUG! Secret Guyz are here to save the day in the hilarious video for “Hug x Hug.”
These guys are funny and weird and have a secret. Is it that they dress up like girls in disguise? Probably.
But when damsels are in distress.. Secret Guys come to the rescue. And watch out for their secret powers, they will blow you away.
But that’s not the funny part. What is funny is the Secret Guyz secretly bad choreography. Holy ballz is it bad. Especially the headbanging. You will laugh till you cry.
These guyz need a hug. So why don’t you hug it out over at CDJapan. Hug X Hug was released on 7.10.2013.
Throw a rose over to Secret Guyz’ blog.
What do you do when you are stuck indoors for the summer? Bring the summer to you.
Dempa Gumi Inc. go online and buy outrageous swimsuits to wear in their video “ノットボッチ…夏” because what else are they going to do when stuck in a high-rise tower?
And when I say outrageous, I mean that Bjork and Lady GaGa donated some of their swimsuits to Goodwill and Dempa Gumi Inc picked through the remains. The only thing more disturbing than these clothes is the Demonic cheer squad guy screaming “JUMP” in the song.
If Dempa Gumi Inc. wanted to go for the weird, they have truly succeeded. They still lack the sophistication of Momoiro Clover Z or the WTF wonder of Kyary, but I’d give them a solid third just for effort.
Preorder your W.W.D. II album out this October at CDJapan or Yesasia.
I hope you like reading… Dempa Gumi Inc.’s website is packed.
Don’t beat yourself up over this.. Syam releases “Folie A Deux” and looks a mess for it.
Lots of simulated sex in this video. In the tub. Wha? I could guess what’s going on in this video, but I prefer not to. Check out this disturbing video from Syam and watch out for bruises.
The song is a slow tempo acoustic heavy number. Syam’s soft vocals are too cuddly for words.
Syam dropped Mittsu no Kokoro no Egurikata on us on 8.7.2013. Grab it at Yesasia or CDJapan.
Put some clothes on over at Syam’s official website.
Hula hoop in your undewear along with nhhmbase and their meaty single “無明の門.”
This animated wonder is a vimeo video, so I hope it plays ok, but it’s definitely worth watching. We are like meat, man! Hanging from the meatlocker hooks ready to be eaten! This is deep stuff. So deep its like ironing your brain matter!
Whoa. The song with the video gives off this weird Radiohead vibe. Hope you dig it. Nhhmbase’s new album 3 1/2 dropped on 6.5.2013. Score it at CDJapan right now.
Go back to home base at nhhmbase’s official website.
Etsuco has a somewhat encouraging pop song with “Try Again,” yet I’m not sure exactly what needs to be tried again in this video.
The video features a gorgeous model girl chilling on the porch, playing in the sand, wading in the beach water, going for a walk.. what did this girl do so badly that she needs to “try again?”
I’m absolutely sure this girl has the whole pretty thing down pat. Eh, the video might be a head scratcher, but the song should push you to greatness.
You should push your way to iTunes.jp and grab the Try Again single.
Hit up Etsuco’s official website for more.
The only way I will try Natto will be with some encouragement. Thank goodness the girl duo of ポイサン委員会 created a cheer song to help anyone who wants to tackle one of Japan’s stickiest gooey-est substances.
Even if you can’t stomach it, the song goes does smoothly and you’ll have “Natto Nebaneba” stuck in your head. FOREVER!
Strengthen those wrist muscles and stir up some goodness over at ポイサン委員会’s official website.
