VIXX: ZELOS

28 April, 2016 - 11:02
VIXX: ZELOS
Release Date: 
4/20/16
Label: 
CJ E&M
VIXX's latest isn't as dark as I'd hoped for, but the songs are still plenty contagious.

Ladies and gentlemen, the members of VIXX have surrendered to the dark side. Well, at least for their latest single, which is named after the Greek God of Rivalry and Envy. Zelos is the first part of a year-long "large-scale project" they're doing called VIXX 2016 Conception, so, then again, maybe they will be evil all year. I'm hoping that proves to be the case because the three tunes here are all fantastic.

LADYBABY: Renge Chance!

23 April, 2016 - 10:32
LADYBABY: Renge Chance!
Release Date: 
4/13/16
Label: 
CLSR
Ladybaby's new single -- their third -- is called "Renge Chance!" and the video features the trio making Japanese ramen bowls in a rather humorous fashion, which is sort of what the song is about.

Ladybaby is the unholy -- depending on your definition of unholy -- metal music trio consisting of Ladybeard, the professional wrestling, crossdressing, bearded character of Australian Rick Magarey and aspiring models Rie Kuromiya and Rie Kaneko. As you're probably aware, their first song/music video "Nippon Manju" (translation: "Japanese Bun") went viral, getting 1 million views in just 2 days at one point.

CNBLUE: BLUEMING

20 April, 2016 - 14:45
CNBLUE: BLUEMING
Release Date: 
4/6/16
Label: 
Loen Entertainment
Spring is in the air and hearts are all fluttery -- two lessons you'll learn from CNBLUE's catchy new mini-album, their 6th vol.

CNBLUE: BLUEMING

CNBLUE are back with the brand new mini-album -- their 6th vol. -- entitled, what else, BLUEMING. To which end, you could certainly say that their new tunes are blooming, as they overflow with sun-drenched melodies and one infectious chorus after another. According to Yes Asia it's a "seasonal" release featuring "various sweet love songs," so if you're looking for a spring fling, this should get you in the mood, provided you can understand Korean. (Actually, the music has that vibe to the point that you should pick up on it even without comprehending the lyrics.)

UTADA HIKARU: Manatsu No Tooriame, Hanataba Wo Kimini

16 April, 2016 - 10:44
UTADA HIKARU: Manatsu No Tooriame, Hanataba Wo Kimini
Release Date: 
4/14/16
Label: 
Virgin Music
Utada Hikaru has returned with two beautiful new singles that are sure to please her longtime fans.

Utada Hikaru has been absent from the Japanese music scene for years now, only very rarely releasing one song for a soundtrack or TV show. To that end, her two comeback singles are for shows or movies if memory serves me correctly. Alas, I have memory problems and I couldn't find the article that mentioned that, so I could be mistaken. In any case, this was a way for Utada to come back without immediately releasing a new pop single or album. Maybe she's testing the waters to see if she still has a fanbase.

PERFUME: COSMIC EXPLORER

PERFUME: COSMIC EXPLORER
Release Date: 
4/6/16
Label: 
Universal Music
Perfume's Cosmic Explorer takes their usual sound and gives it a pleasant sci-fi twist.

It's hard to believe, but Cosmic Explorer is Perfume's fifth album already. This time around, they went three years in between albums, their last one being Level 3 in 2013. Of course, it's not like they ever went away.

LABOUM: FRESH ADVENTURE

7 April, 2016 - 12:13
LABOUM: FRESH ADVENTURE
Release Date: 
4/11/16
Label: 
Windmill Ent.
If you're looking for something that breaks the K-Pop mold you're not going to find it here. That said, the three songs on Fresh Adventure are fun nevertheless.

LABOUM's new mini-album opens with a 44 second intro consisting of lots of synth and dashes of electro, which fits perfectly with the opening song and lead single "상상더하기," which has been translated as "Imagine More." It's a sweet, danceable, spring-themed song that's sure to spread joy wherever you play it. Except maybe if you play it in a room full of metalheads; that would probably piss them off. But it would be hard to find a K-Pop fan whose face "Imagine More" wouldn't put a smile on.

BABYMETAL: METAL RESISTANCE

BABYMETAL: METAL RESISTANCE
Release Date: 
4/1/16
Label: 
RAL
BABYMETAL strike back -- and strike gold -- with some of their heaviest and most diverse tunes to date.

For the one or two of you who haven't heard of the Japanese metal band BABYMETAL, they started off in 2010 as a sub-unit of the girl group Sakura Gakuin. The members are young girls (kids, really): Suzuka Nakamoto as "Su-metal", Yui Mizuno as "Yuimetal", and Moa Kikuchi as "Moametal.” Interesting fact: none of them were even familiar with metal music before the formation of their sub-unit.

HANAE: SHOWGIRL
Release Date: 
3/23/16
Label: 
Universal Music
Hanae's new album is playful, colorful and spectacular J-Pop.

I just reviewed Hanae's super fun single "Shugarirura" the other day and I am quite happy to tell you that she's just released a stellar new album full of deliciously quirky new tunes. And while it's only March, I can pretty much guarantee you that this one will fall within my top 20 albums of 2016. It's that darn good.

Label:

I've been sick recently and most music has sounded like trash to me accordingly. But these are some songs I managed to fall in love with even when my whole body hurt like there was an elephant crushing me.

SICK REVIEWS:

I've had the flu and a bad cough for a week and a half now. That combined with my regular health problems has meant a whole lot of suffering. To say I was miserable would be an understatement. But there are a few tunes that I've managed to enjoy during this time when most things just sound blah. Here are some of the enjoyable ones.
